    Fabulous video. I think you cover all the issues well. Film of the girls having FGM is very upsetting (but necessary). Good to go through the deinfibulation operation – though seems to require GA (from video) although local anaesthetic is described verbally. It would be nice to hear from women who’ve had FGM/ deinfibulation esp if there are voices saying some improvement in sexual feeling? Cant tell if you want this to be seen by nonclincians
    Best wishes +++

    I found this clip very informative and it should be seen by every health professional working with women who have been affected or are at risk of FGM.

  3. Kate Langford

    Thank you for this excellent resource.The demonstration of de-infibulation is very clear. I agree that it would be great to hear from a woman who had had de-infibulation about what this meant to them.

  4. jothi

  5. Sabita Nair

    very informative video.

  6. Michael Sooknanan

    An extremely valuable video on FGM and deinfibulation operation with a global perspective of the challenges professionals face both clinically and culturally on this important topic. Extremely helpful for trainees in obstetrics & gynaecology.

    Great resource, really useful and important information. I feel much more able to support victims of fgm after watching this.

  11. Lisa Barnes

    Excellent resource, simple and effective no no-sense information about FGM and the scale of the problem in the UK alone. Thank you to all the participants. I agree it would be useful to hear things from the woman’s perspective but understand this may well be a step too far for a woman to speak out.

    Good educational resource on FGM for the O&G trainees.Perhaps a mock video demonstrating counselling a woman with FGM sensitively on various issues,can be added.

  26. sundari devendran

    A very comprehansive video which covered ethical, cultural, emotional and physical aspect of FGM. It is a really valuble resource for the O & G trainees.
    The video also covered the process of defibulation which is very very useful guide.

  27. Shailly Sahu Bhansali

    Very Informative. As previously suggested a mock counselling session would be helpful

  28. Shailly Sahu Bhansali

    Very useful resource

  29. Anuradha Sajja

    very informative video especially for health professionals dealing with FGM patients.

  30. Harish Bhandari

    A comprehensive, very useful and informative resource for all the professionals. The video demonstration of deinfibulation is an invaluable guide to obstetricians, O&G trainees and midwives.

  31. Sue Martin

    As a GP I found the medical aspects of de-infibulation invaluable. A video is far better than reading or being lectured. Thank you. I agree it might have been useful to have a little more about the counselling and talking to women about it too.

  32. revathi dharmapuri krishnan

    Good educational module. It is an opportunity for us to watch “Defibulation”. Just wondering how willing the patients are to have defibulation under local anaesthesia.

  33. Dr E Ebeid

    Very useful video demonstrating de-infibulation
    Comprehensive educational resource

  34. rashmi

    Thank you. Defibulation informative. Unfortunately FGM is not illegal in some countries outside UK. The work on FGM has to be global to truly make a difference.

    Eye Opener if can be shared with everyone on social media so people visualize why it is such an important issue for us clinicians; and everyone in societies where this is practised to stop this practise on girls…
