Discussions and Frequently Asked Questions

 Pregnancy cannot be planned, it occurs naturally.

Key Response: Family planning methods help in spacing births. They are available at the nearest health centre, including oral contraceptive pill, condoms, IUCD. They are safe to use.


 There is pressure to have a male child quickly if the first child is a girl and so the gap between pregnancies cannot be maintained.

Key Response: Mother's body needs 2 years to recover from childbirth. Consecutive pregnancies with less than 2 years gap puts both lives in danger. Your child will be healthier and physically stronger if you wait 2 years before you have the next baby.


 Contraceptive measures are resisted by men and discouraged by mothers-in-law.

Key Response: Talking to your husband about birth spacing is important. The entire family's well-being is affected if there are too many births too close together. Older siblings cannot be looked after properly if there is a newborn.
