WHAT PEOPLE SAY

Things we didn’t know first, we have learn them now. Before the training, when big beelly tell us their head hurting, we use to tell them to boil country medicine and drink it. During the traiinng, we learn that it was wrong and whenever anything is happening to the big belly, we should tell her to go or take her to the health facility quick quick. The midwife at the facilitiy will treat their patient well.

The big belly club (Maternity support club) is important to me because I can learn how to take care of myself and my baby well. Being in this club helps me stay happy and not think about the problem I am going through at home. I really hope that this club can continue so other women that will get pregnant can benefit from the teachings just like me.
