Objective: To determine knowledge, attitudes and professional experiences of midwives in primary health care in the province of Sevilla on female genital mutilation (FGM). Material and methods: Descriptive transversal study was carried out with 80 midwives who work in primary health centers in Sevilla and surroundings. A questionnaire was sent to them for October and November in 2009. Results: These were analyzed using SPSS 17.0. There is a perception of knowledge of the phenomenon in terms of definition, where it is practiced and practical reasons for, not matched by the responses. Low case detection: 0.9%. No known action protocols, guidelines, and legislation. Widespread interest in learning about more about FGM. Conclusions: There remains a need for training in this area as there is a pretty clear knowledge gap. The dissemination of protocols and guidelines facilitate boarding.
