Because if you botch it he could bleed to death, that’s why.
A four-week-old boy “bled to death” after a home circumcision carried out by a nurse, a court has heard.
Goodluck Caubergs died the day after nurse Grace Adeleye carried out the procedure without anaesthetic, Manchester Crown Court was told.
Mrs Adeleye, of Sarnia Court, Salford, was paid £100 to do the operation as Goodluck’s parents did not know the procedure was available on the NHS.
It is alleged the defendant, who is also a midwife, left a “ragged” wound that bled and her post-operative care was inadequate.
All that for a procedure that isn’t medically necessary in the first place.
