Abstract

Objective: To determine whether timing of deinfibulation influences obstetric outcomes for women with type 3 female genital mutilation (FGM). Design: A retrospective observational study comprising 94 women with type 3 FGM who gave birth from 2008–2012. Method: Outcomes described in maternity notes of women with deinfibulation performed prior to labour (n=62) compared with ‘not deinfibulated before labour’ (n=32). Secondary analysis was then performed excluding women who had caesarean sections. Findings: Women who were ‘not deinfibulated before labour’ had a significantly greater risk of episiotomy (RR 1.67, P2 days (RR 1.33, P
