Yacine Bal and her children

Yacine Bal is now a fulfilled mother. But in 2015 she experienced a traumatic pregnancy.

Then a young bride, under a contraceptive implant and mother of a 7 month old girl who she is still breastfeeding, Yacine Bal is expecting a second child but is unaware of it.

“Unlike my eldest daughter’s pregnancy which was very complicated where I was sick all the time, I was in great shape there. I was very active and as the eldest of the family I organized family ceremonies,” says Ms. Yacine Bal, who years later is still stunned.
