Mohamed commented on Engaging Men as Family Planning Health Promoters

Mother's well-being is one of the most important element that a family has to have. And without it I think not only a family will suffer but it will definitly have a negative impact in society .
Family planning for me is not a newly invented concept. It's actually encouraged in Quran that the mother must breast feed their newly born babies upto 2 yrs . Its true that alot of men in somalia do not give the the importance it deserves to help mothers to take sometime in between as they prefer to have children in quick succession which in alot of cases have a negative consequences.
I am not against of having many kids but I think mother's wellbeing should be prioritised. It's is not a man problem only, female have to role to play to change this in a positive way.
Thanks
