“Somali women’s birth experiences in Canada after earlier female genital mutilation”

This publication deals with the migration of women to countries where FGM is uncommon. It also documents the difficulties for health care providers in these countries, as they lack experience dealing with FGM related cases, particularly during child birth. The survey focused largely on Somali women in Ontario to explore their perspectives of perinatal care and their earlier genital mutilation experience.
