There are three errors in “Defibulation During Vaginal Delivery for Women With Type III Female Genital Mutilation” by A. A. Rouzi, S. A. Al-Sibiani, N. M. Al-Mansouri, N. S. Al-Sinani, E. A. Al-Jahdali, and K. Darhouse (Obstet Gynecol 2012;120:98–103):

1. At the end of the Abstract on page 98, the Level of Evidence is incorrect. The correct Level of Evidence is II. The Editorial Office regrets this error.

2. The author byline contains an error: “Abdulrahim A. Rouzi, MB, Chb” is incorrect. The correct byline is “Abdulrahim A. Rouzi, FRCSC.” This error occurred during production.

3. On page 102 in the second column, first full paragraph, a sentence incorrectly states: “In one survey of women who had undergone female genital mutilation or cutting in Switzerland, all participants requested that defibulation be performed during delivery rather than adding an additional traumatic event during pregnancy, because episiotomies are performed on Swiss women (in their words, ‘Why should a Somali woman be cut twice?’).16” The correct sentence is: “In one survey conducted in Switzerland of immigrant women who had undergone female genital mutilation or cutting, all participants requested that defibulation be performed during delivery rather than adding an additional traumatic event during pregnancy, because episiotomies are performed on Swiss women during delivery (in their words, ‘Why should a Somali woman be cut twice?’).16” This error occurred during production.

In “Excessive Early Gestational Weight Gain and Risk of Gestational Diabetes Mellitus in Nulliparous Women” (Obstet Gynecol 2012;119:1227–33), an author name (George R. Saade, MD) was omitted from the author byline. The correct byline is: “Carlos A. Carreno, MD, Rebecca G. Clifton, PhD, John C. Hauth, MD, Leslie Myatt, PhD, James M. Roberts, MD, Catherine Y. Spong, MD, Michael W. Varner, MD, John M. Thorp Jr, MD, Brian M. Mercer, MD, Alan M. Peaceman, MD, Susan M. Ramin, MD, Marshall W. Carpenter, MD, Anthony Sciscione, DO, Jorge E. Tolosa, MD, MSCE, George R. Saade, MD, and Yoram Sorokin, MD, for the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD) Maternal-Fetal Medicine Units (MFMU) Network.” Dr. Saade did not report any potential conflicts of interest. The corresponding author regrets this omission.
