La pratique des sages-femmes concernant les mutilations sexuelles féminines en salle de naissances : Évaluation des connaissances, des pratiques et des besoins professionnels dans quatre structures de soins

Abstract : Introduction / Objectives The female genital mutilations are responsible for many pathologies, including obstetric ones. In the birth room, midwives are directly confronted with this problem. The objective of this study was therefore to identify the state of knowledge, practices and needs of midwives based on their experiences and pre-established training. Methods A descriptive study questioning midwives, divided into 4 different care facilities in the Ile-de-France area, was conducted between October and December 2018 Results A high rate of excised patients treated in the hospital structure increased the knowledge of midwives on MGF as opposed to a training (p = 0.013). Advanced age and experience also yielded significant results. Only trained midwives cared for infibulated patients (p = 0.0007) although 60% of other practitioners would like to do same. Conclusion Midwives play a central role in caring for circumcised women. It is essential that they are better trained to diagnose and thus be able to better inform these patients.
