“We started using family planning after our first child, we really wanted to space our children but then, we did not know about much about family planning. This was before NURHI came to Ilorin. We visited a family planning clinic where we were counseled on all methods of family planning, thereafter, my wife went for some tests and decided to use injectable.
When we wanted to have our second child, there was no delay after the injectable was stopped. We have three children with at least three years between them. We want to encourage people to seek for family planning advice to know the best method for them and also give birth only to the number of children you can take care of.
NURHI’s awareness is making a lot of impact in the city, more people are now aware of the benefits of family planning and they are going for it.”
