As with most guidelines about female genital mutilation the definition of reinfibulation concerns me. Often after delivery there is tearing or episiotomy to facilitate childbirth. Repairing this could be defined as reinfibulation though the purpose of repair is to restore anatomy and promote healing. My fear is that just by repairing the tear and or episiotomy I may be accused of reinfibulating.
