- The woman who lost seven out of the ones she birthed said children are blessings from God as He takes care of them all
- Jummai disclosed that she is open to having more children and is unfazed about what the economic cost could be
A Nigerian woman, Jummai Ibrahim Tsafe, from Kano state, who gave birth to 17 children has said that she really does not mind having 10 more.
In a BBC News Pidgin interview, the 47-year-old woman said giving birth to children has always come with relative ease for her, adding that only one came through an operation.
Out of all the births she has had, Jummai was only at the hospital on two different occasions to deliver. The rest were delivered at home. The woman disclosed that seven of the kids died, leaving 5 girls and 5 boys.
The mother who got married at the age of 14 stated that people are always in utter disbelief whenever she tells them how many children she has.
Jummai went further to say people who are often scared of having many kids really do not know how much of a blessing children are.
The mother of many added that she is ready to have more children irrespective of her economic power, stating that God is the great provider.
