I am still a bit shocked by this idea. FGM is truly the most horrible (or at least one of the most horrible) things done to women. I can remember a woman who originally came from Kenya arriving at the Gynae A+E I worked on. She was miscarrying her baby but due to being mutilated couldn't. Her husband and brother insisited that she was resutered after the procedure to remove the fetus. The consultant said she wouldn't and the man took the woman away. There was such a feeling of hopelessness on the unit when they went.
