I am a Mohel and its too late to call my rov. People had a baby on shabbos. They live in manhattan on the 14th floor of a high rise.
If they perform the bris there will be Massive chilul shabbos. Parents would drive from westchester, brothers and sisters all would drive to NY and use the elevator.
I told them they should find a mohelto perform a private bris in the apt. and have a big party on sunday.
mother told me she will have a nervous breakdown.She sounds very stressed out and is crying. Is there any hetter to do it on sunday on the 9th day. I have never done something like this before and am not happy to agree to them.

Answer:

The bris should be performed on the 8th day. Everything should be done to minimize chilul Shabbos: inviting less people, asking people to come for the entire Shabbos and so on. Ultimately the parents responsibility is to give their child a bris in the right time, and they are not responsible for other people’s chilul Shabbos.
