Training: Healthy Pregnancy Practices

A few weeks ago, Moussa and I hosted a training on healthy pregnancy practices. We discussed the importance of good nutrition, going to your prenatal consultations, and the benefits of birth spacing. Also Amadou Bello (lower right corner) is a champ. Even though he was one of two men who came, he fully participated. He helped me with not one, but two condom demonstrations (male and female) and gave a really good answer when we asked what is the role of the father during pregnancy. His answer? Go to the prenatal consultations with the mother and help out around the house.
