This resource is meant to help women start a conversation with their health practitioners about their experience of Female Genital Cutting (FGC). For many women, this can be an uncomfortable
topic. It may have been a physically and psychologically traumatic experience and may be embarrassing to talk about due to cultural norms. This resource allows women to inform their health practitioner about their medical history and concerns, in a less invasive way. It covers what patients can expect at a visit to the OB/GYN, why FGC is practiced, considerations and cultural sensitivity, laws against FGC, and is available in multiple languages.
