La formation des sages-femmes face aux mutilations sexuelles féminines. Évaluation des pratiques professionnelles et propositions d'amélioration des prises en charge

Abstract : Training midwives face to female genital mutilations: Evaluation of professional practices and proposals for care improvement. Nowadays, female genital mutilation (FGM) is declining, both countries where they were originally performed and among migrant populations. However, it is estimated that over 140 million women are sexually mutilated in the world. Eliminating these practices is a public health issue because mutilations are not only harmful to women's health but also to their children. Health professionals and especially midwives have a great place to take in this fight, because midwives are guaranteeing the health of women and newborns. The many aspects of these practices and their complexity partly explain the perpetuation of FGM. However, a better training of health professionals would allow us to better control the issues surrounding these practices and to strengthen our ability to act as advocates for the abandonment of FGM. It would also increase the quality of the support especially in terms of prevention and that would contribute to a faster and more significant decrease of FGM worldwide.
