This page collects anonymous case reports of children who died because of circumcision.


My godson's name was Braydon, he would be 10 this year, the exact same age as my own son.

He was born in 2011. I think he was roughly 6 lbs. Healthy boy, head of hair, a bundle of joy. It was a smooth birth and they were home within 3 days. He had blue eyes that would light up any room, and skin as delicate as porcelain.

My friend [his mother, name withheld for privacy] was American, her husband [name also withheld] Canadian and Jewish.

She never put much thought into circumcision, she thought it was the norm and assumed that her husband would want it with him being Jewish (she was unaware at the time he was indifferent on the issue and was taking her lead), he was born in either July or late late June. Sadly the exact date has slipped my memory over the years.

At just a few weeks old they booked him in for an infant circumcision. They were told it would be a quick and simple procedure. That he would feel no pain and likely sleep through it.. That he would be back in their arms before they knew it.

Time dragged on, and it was taking longer than usual, then they were asked if they could step into a room to speak with the staff.

Braydon was suffering from hemorrhage, turns out he had hemophilia they were unaware of. It was decided to transport him to the hospital as they couldn't get it under control. He was white, he was pale.

It's hard to write the next part and I've got tears in my eyes as a type this..

Braydon did not survive. He passed due to hemorrhage, caused by his circumcision, his young life gone far too soon.

Had he not been circumcised he highly likely would still be here with us today.

The part that will always at night though.. Realizing it was only done because mom thought it was the norm everywhere in the world.

They have since been blessed with 2 more children, twin boys, and they are the way nature made them. Both their twin sons also have hemophilia, but both are happy and incredibly healthy 6 year old boys the hemophilia aside.

Aimee & her husband and daughter had two happy days with newborn Oliver in June 2019, before he was circumcised in a Connecticut hospital.

Circumcision Death
He was born completely healthy. He died because they were negligent and didn’t clean their circumcision tools and because of that my son contracted herpes and suffered everyday of his life in pain.

When we came home from the hospital, I told my husband and his pediatrician there was something wrong with my baby. As soon as he came back from having the procedure, he started acting differently. He cried constantly. You see he was in pain. He would clench up, he refused food. I kept telling the dr and my husband there is something wrong with my baby and I think he is going to die.

He stopped breathing which landed us into the hospital with our 16-day-old baby. It took a week to figure out he had hsv2, which is herpes. The herpes caused him to get meningitis and encephalitis, which eventually ate his brain to the point his brain was liquid.

My son had 7 spinal taps during his stay. We brought him home after 7 and half weeks in the hospital. At this point they are telling us that he is going to be completely dependent on us the rest of his life, that he suffered severe brain damage.

We were able to bring him home but he was on iv medication for 2 weeks at home. He needed medication by iv round the clock. My son was on 12 medications. He suffered from seizures due to the meningitis.

On August __ my son turned blue and stopped breathing again in my arms. We had been home about two weeks. We called 911. They drilled a hole into his tiny little leg on my couch in my living room to get him the iv medication.

On August __ we had to make the decision to take him off life support. He was completely brain dead. He stopped opening his eyes, eating, crying, moving.

My little boy was gone. My husband and I took him off life support at 1:22 pm. He died in my arms at 10:35 that night. I watched my little boy slowly stop breathing and die and that was the hardest thing I have ever gone through in my entire life, but he would never be off a ventilator nor would ever open his eyes or speak or anything.

My daughter was just over the moon happy with having a baby brother. She loved him so much. We had to send her to stay with my parents while our son was fighting for his life so in a sense she lost her brother and her parents for a while.

She was devastated. She has said so many times she wants to die and go to heaven to be with her brother. She is only 6 years old. We kept her involved as much as we could but this has affected her in so many different ways. We went from explaining to her that he was going to be different and special and need lots of care to I’m sorry but your brother is going to die. She got very mad and hated the world for taking her baby brother.

The hospital blamed me, saying I gave him herpes which we were able to prove that I don’t have it, never have, nor have I ever been exposed. Our lawyer has been able to pin the time frame along with drs to prove that Oliver caught the infection during the circumcision.

We didn’t know how it was done until after my son died and I watched a video and I almost lost my mind to see how cruel it is.

I would have fought with my life to stop the circumcision but they said it was safe and normal.

We both lived in the hospital with our son. We never left him we were just praying to God that our little boy would live. This child our son is my husband's only biological child . I remember us both blaming ourselves for what happened to our little boy. There was a lot of resentment, a lot of anger towards the hospital where he was birthed. This mistake cost our son his life and tore our family up.
