NEW 2021 Circumcision Info / Intact Care Pack
The full SOS circumcision / intact care info pack is designed to be an introduction to the topics of infant circumcision, intact development, intact care, and a myth-busting, research-based educational tool. It is greatly used and appreciated by midwives, doulas, CBEs, LCs, physicians, and those lending items to expecting clients, or sharing materials with friends.
EACH FULL INFO PACK INCLUDES THE FOLLOWING:
★ 60+ pages of articles and research. This material broaches a wide range of sub-categories within intact literature, and responds to all major myths regarding the prepuce, intact care, and circumcision today.
★ Complimentary videos on DVD full of helpful, research-based information on the prepuce, its care, and the circumcision decision parents in the U.S. and Canada are allowed to make today.
★ A National Medical Organizations Statements on Circumcision chart that highlights positions on infant circumcision from a variety of respected groups around the world including those in the U.S., Canada, U.K., Australia, Finland, India and others.
★ An Intact Celebs oversized postcard to highlight the normalcy of remaining intact as a man in today's U.S. culture.
★ Intact Care cards in two sizes to use at birth or with caregivers after birth. These are full color, glossy, two sided, and many families choose to laminate them for their baby's bassinet, which is especially helpful in the NICU.
★ A Visitors Guide for Postpartum Moms oversized chart to use during/after birth, with foreskin facts and intact care listed on the back side of the guide.
★ A Keeping Future Sons Intact card especially for parents who may already have a son who was circumcised. This does not mean future sons cannot remain intact. Many families are raising both circumcised and intact sons, and we hope to support parents in this change of heart.
★ A "Did You Know?" card full of quick facts about the prepuce, intact care, and circumcision in the U.S. and Canada.
★ An "Expecting a Boy?" postcard that contains quick go-to resources on the front; circumcision and intact care points on the back.

★ An "All Mammals are Born With Foreskin" card with quick facts about the normalcy of this body organ on all mammals on earth - male and female, and its function, purpose, and care.
★ An "Intact vs. Circumcised Outcome Statistics" postcard that highlights the difference between an intact and circumcised newborn baby; shows a photo of what a circumcised infant looks like both from Plastibell and Gomco clamp, and lists statistics and risk factors both for keeping babies intact, and circumcising.
★ An "Intact vs. Circumcised Adult" postcard that specifies the way the glans must change from being an internal to external organ when circumcision is carried out. This card is also includes restoration information for men who may want to look further into this option.
★ A "Lost/Found" card that has quick-facts on the functions of the foreskin on one side (things that are lost to circumcision) and the things found with restoration on the back. This card is especially for fathers who may feel their son should 'match' them.
★ A "Restoration" card that has go-to resources for men who may have been circumcised at birth, as well as the large variety of restoration devices available to men today.
★ A "Breastfeeding/Circumcision" info card that points out the many ways that circumcision can hamper a successful breastfeeding relationship.
★ A "Congratulations!" groups card with a wide variety of discussion groups on various topics parents may be interested in (everything from pregnancy, birth, breastfeeding, babywearing, cloth diapering, gentle discipline, raising girls or boys, etc.).
★ An "Elephant in the Hospital" sticker. Dr. McAllister's entire Georgetown University lecture is included on the DVD with this pack; the sticker is added as an extra encouragement to spark interest and move parents to check things out.
★ An "American Circumcision on Netflix" sticker that encourages families to look up this informative film on Netflix.
★ An "Intact Care" sticker that can be used in a baby's chart, on wipes, diapers, or anywhere a vinyl sticker can be placed.
★ Calmoseptine: This ointment is the top recommended for use on developing skin. It does not interfere with a baby's natural pH or healthy (protective) microflora, and is perfect for use on babies during diaper days, when irritation or redness is common. It is the most recommended cream by pediatricians volunteering their time with Saving Our Sons, and is the cream we use when leading intact care classes. Calmoseptine can be purchased at most pharmacies around the world, or on Amazon (https://amzn.to/3bOkIfb).

This packet is amazing. I added all of the extras (religious, HIV) available so I can keep it on hand because my area is very uneducated and still has a high cut rate (MI). Very thankful for those who took the time to put this together.
Great resources at steal of a price. Thank you for your service!

Great collection of patient education material will use with all new mothers!
