How Far Ahead Should I Call a Mohel?

While some parents wait until the baby is born to contact a mohel, many parents choose to make arrangements a few weeks in advance of the expected due date. Starting early gives parents a chance to meet the mohel at a more relaxed time and discuss the ceremony in advance. Because popular mohalim will often be scheduled to perform multiple britot on the same day, informing them in advance of your expected due date may help them plan accordingly.
