Fatima

You are here

I feel very tired but so happy. It’s my first baby. I have been pregnant four times before but never had a baby. I lost each of them, after three months, four months and five months. The last one after six months … When I got pregnant again, I went to a small private clinic for antenatal care. I never did before because we don’t have money to spend for that. But this time, we really thought it was important and I went three times … My husband had to work a lot to pay for the medical care. Our neighbours told us to come [to the MSF clinic] once the baby came. They said I would be taken care of.
