This is Aisha, who delivered eight babies, although sadly one did not survive.  Aisha is 38 years old. She used to be a small-scale farmer, able to meet some basic needs, including school fees for her children. Aisha’s husband used to take some of her money to buy alcohol. He beat and abused Aisha when he got drunk.

Life became very difficult for Aisha, so she decided to divorce her husband and relocate to Arusha Region.  She got a job in one of Arusha’s factories, met another man and married him. When she became pregnant she started attending Maternity Africa’s antenatal clinic.  On 5 August, she safely delivered her seventh son (3kg).
