Can anyone restitch (re-infibulate) a woman after childbirth?

Yes, in some circumstances. Re-stitching following childbirth can only occur if the doctor considers it is necessary for the mental or physical health of the woman and the woman has made an informed decision. In general re-stitching can only occur where a woman has experienced tearing as a result of childbirth.
