Obudu: Following the birthing of quadruplets, a teenage mother says she will utilise one family planning method before leaving the hospital in what she says is a step in the right direction.

Patience Abantelhe in her mid twenties put to birth 3 boys and 1 girl at about 9:30 AM Friday at the Sacred Heart Hospital through a caesarean section and now says she is done with reproducing for now.

“I know about family planning and I will do it before I leave the hospital, I do not want any other children now” said Patience to Betta Edu, the director general of the Cross River State Primary Health Care Development Agency who came in to visit the mother and her babies.

While addressing Patience alongside other women in the maternity ward, Betta stressed the need for family planning and child spacing describing it as necessary for proper care to be given to children. Also she charged Patience to take a break from child bearing.
