We used a Jewish mohel for my son's circumcision. My midwife had one she recommended..he was also a pedi. Since we aren't Jewish we just made an appt to come to his office instead of him coming to our home. Mohels usually do them from 1 week to 1 month old. So, when Ben was 2 weeks we took him in. I stayed with him in the office while he did it, my hubby was in waiting room with our other son. He cried for about a minute and then the mohel/doc handed him right back to me and he was all better. It healed beautifully in about 2 weeks and we never had any problems with it. If we have anymore boys I would definitely use a mohel again, no question. Ask your midwife she might know of some. Oh and just so you know it probably won't be covered by insurance. Ours wasn't and we had to pay out of pocket $300 for the procecedure. I have heard even medicaid in some states have quit covering it.

Sometimes I feel (at least in the online community) that I am the only female that has actually chosen circumcision for my sons without leaving it up to my hubby.
