“I have Easy Pregnancies, I Need no Medical Assistance”

Type of News: News
Release Date: June 28, 2012
Sourayya is 22 years old. She has 5 children, aged 6, 4, 2, 1 years as well as a newborn aged 1 month. Her last 4 pregnancies “were only separated by the belly”, “I got pregnant while still breastfeeding”. When asked about what would be the ideal birth spacing in her opinion, she said that it would be after the child “has turned clean” (1-2 years old) so that the child can get the needed amount of maternal attention. We had to reformulate the question and ask her about what she would need, for herself, her own health. Here, she laughed and answered “when the child goes to school” (5 years old).
