INFO PACK




In order to make a fully informed decision, having easy access to valid, research-based information is key. Working hand in hand with peaceful parenting, we strive to deliver accurate prepuce ('foreskin'), intact care, and circumcision information to any expecting parent in need or clients of intact conscious practitioners. The SOS info pack includes:  
  • 80 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 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 proper intact care chart for use at a physician's office, daycare, nursery or with a babysitter. We are happy to send along additional intact care cards at your request. These are 2-sided, full color, glossy, and made with heavy card stock so they can be reused (or laminated and kept handy with your baby's diaper bag). 
  • 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. [Not Pictured Above]
  • 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. 
  • A "U.S. Parents Today Say NO" info card that contains quick facts on the prepuce, intact care, and circumcision, as well as a full list of websites for doing additional research on the subject of circumcision, intact care, and restoration. 
  • 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. [Not Pictured Above]
  • 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 heavy with restoration information for men who may want to look further into this option. [Not Pictured Above]
  • A "Breastfeeding/Circumcision" info card that points out the many ways that circumcision can hamper a successful breastfeeding relationship. [Not Pictured Above] 
  • An "HIV/Circumcision" info card stressing some of the facts pertaining to the HIV trials in Africa and the myths that now flood news media about circumcision as an HIV prevention tool. [Not Pictured Above]
  • A "What does this card have to do with your penis?" postcard with facts, stats and resources for adult men who may be coming into this information for the first time, and in the future may look into restoration options. [Not Pictured Above]
  • [Optional] A Jewish/Brit Shalom themed or Christian themed info card with pertinent faith-based resources for Jewish or Christian families. Email SavingSons@gmail.com or include a note with your request if you would like a Jewish or Christian themed card included. These are meant for recipients who may be considering circumcision for faith based reasons. 
  • Calmoseptine samples: This diaper cream is the top recommended ointment for use on sensitive and developing skin. It does not interfere with a baby's natural pH or healthy (protective) microflora, and is perfect for use on intact boys when irritation or redness may occur. It is the #1 recommended cream by pediatricians volunteering their time with DrMomma.org, and is the cream we use when leading intact care classes around the nation with The Intact Network. Calmoseptine can be purchased at all pharmacies in the U.S. and Canada, and most pharmacies world-wide for about $6/tube. 
  • Contact information and follow-up with families who may have additional questions, or want to talk with a 'foreskin-friendly' physician, educator, or other parents in their local area who have recently been through this decision. 
Each of the items in the SOS info pack has been specially selected by a small board of individuals who have served in the professional fields of pediatrics, human sexuality, development, birth and education over the past 35 years. Our pack serves to empower parents in making a fully informed decision for their son before birth, and equipping parents with necessary resources for proper intact care after birth.

The SOS info pack is perfect to share with friends, family and parents (or parents-to-be), as well as birth and baby educators, midwives, doulas, and medical professionals serving expecting clients. If you would like to request an information pack for yourself or someone you know, use the tab below or contact us at SavingSons@gmail.com. We will gladly send a pack anonymously on behalf of those who wish to do so, although information is typically better shared gently and respectfully between trusted parties.

Information packs cost $12 for printing, materials, and supplies; $4 to ship (U.S.), $5 (Canada), $8 shipping to other international locations by weight. You may choose to donate any amount for your pack, but if it is less than $16, you will be placed on a waiting list until the rest of the funds are gathered to ship.

Expecting? Combo Pack


The Expecting? combo packet of informational items is significantly smaller than the full circumcision info pack (no DVDs or full articles), but is perfect for sending to any and all expecting friends/family. Materials are professionally made and serve to plant seeds of information on each of the following topics: circumcision, intact care, breastfeeding, babywearing and healthy baby sleep (i.e. no 'cry it out'). These items are mailed directly from Peaceful Parenting and include a thorough amount of material on circumcision and intact care, while at the same time covering other parenting topics that will impact a baby's life. 'Keeping future sons intact' themed info is included to ensure those who may already have circumcised boys find they have community and can be empowered to make a different decision the next time around. The Expecting? pack can be mailed anonymously - simply include an individual's name and address for shipping, or email SavingSons@gmail.com with this information. Indicate if you would like the Christian or Jewish themed information on circumcision to be added to the pack.

Expecting? Pack $5

The Breastfeeding Mom's Info Pack was created to send to an expecting mother who plans to nurse her baby, in situations where you'd like to give her something to meet her needs, plant seeds of intact info, and encourage her in the gentle care of her baby on the way. 

These packs include:

  • 5 lanolin samples, 
  • $5 in Lansinoh coupons, 
  • 1 'wean me gently' poem and natural weaning facts postcard,

The bracelets are dearly loved by nursing moms everywhere and come in regular adult size, or small size for those with smaller wrists. The lanolin samples and coupons are heartily used and appreciated by new nursing moms.
