Notes: 
Includes bibliographical references and index. --- Review, Network Summer/Fall 2004: Female genital mutilation (FGM) comprises all procedures involving partial or total removal of the external female genitalia, or other injury to the female genital organs, whether for cultural, religious or other non-therapeutic reasons. Long-term consequences of FGM include cysts and abscesses, keloid scar formation, damage to the urethra resulting in urinary incontinence, dyspareunia (painful sexual intercourse) and sexual dysfunction, and difficulties with childbirth. While not practiced legally in Canada, health care providers have patients who have been subjected to FGM, and who seek health care for pregnancy and childbirth. Chalmers and Omer-Hasi provide detailed instruction and recommendations to ensure quality, sensitive and culturally appropriate prenatal care, and birth and post-partum care, for women who have experienced FGM.
