Christina uses the mogen method to circumcise. This time-tested technique has significantly less manipulation of the skin compared to the alternatives and takes about a minute for the actual procedure. It also has an excellent cosmetic outcome.
A multi-step pain management approach is offered to accomplish Christina's primary goal of decreasing discomfort to the newborn. You may choose all, none or some of the options below.
Comfort & Healing Measures
Christina performs the procedure on newborns up to one month old. Most parents schedule the circumcision for about a week after birth, when blood clotting is more favorable and mom's breast milk has come in. A vitamin K treatment for the newborn is not required. She is happy to accommodate circumcisions on the eighth day, even with short notice.
Anticipate 45 minutes to an hour for the visit. Time is built in to feed your little one following the procedure and to thoroughly discuss aftercare instructions.
Christina understands the sensitive nature of the visit and places great emphasis on answering all questions, maintaining a calm and pleasant demeanor and providing comprehensive teaching on what to expect during the procedure and healing afterwards.
- Rockwall Home: $375 if you prefer a more informal option, Christina's home has a dedicated area to provide this service. You are also welcome to bring any siblings with this selection and toys are available.
- Rockwall Office: $400 if you prefer a more executive option, where you will be in a private office space.
- Fort Worth Birthing & Wellness Center: $500 if you live closer to the west side of town. This option will be available once or twice a month based on interest.
Included in the fee is your choice of the comfort and healing measures as well as the needed aftercare supplies. You also have 24 hour access to Christina for any follow-up questions. A post-procedure visit is included in Rockwall (marked on the map) upon request.
**On a personal note: Traveling to client's homes for circumcision was an offering that closely aligned with my values of making the procedure as comfortable and convenient as possible. That said, I have decided that being present more with my family is the value I must honor for this stage of life while raising, loving and investing in my 3 young children. To that end, after six years, I have decided to limit my traveling and to offer the service in Rockwall and occasionally Fort Worth.**
