Keeping Kids Healthy: Premature Babies: Good Things Come in Small Packages; Circumcision: Is It Right for Your Child?

Premature Babies
Good Things Come in Small Packages: It's often a life and death struggle: premature babies so small they can fit in an adult's hand. Host Dr. Winnie King takes us into the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit to see those babies, and provides the information parents need to make it through the uncertainty and the anxiety.

Circumcision: Is it Right for Your Child?
When you give birth to a son, in most cases (religious issues notwithstanding), there’s an immediate decision that you have to make: to circumcise, or not to circumcise. It’s a choice that’s left up to the parent, but that freedom can be a mixed blessing – because there just aren’t that many clear guidelines from the medical community about what you should do, and a lot of people don’t feel very comfortable pressing their doctors for the answers! So in this program, we’re going to help you with that tough decision, by bringing together in one place the medical advice and information that will help you decide what’s best for your child. You’ll meet parents who’ve decided for and against it, you’ll see a discreet demonstration of how the procedure is done, and you’ll find out what the experts, religious communities and leading health organizations have to say about the pros and cons of each approach for your child.
