I was married to a man who doesn't come from my tribe and we were happy and loving each other as husband and wife also both his parents and mine were fine with our marriage expecially his parents loved me as their daughter in law. After staying together for 18 months I got pregnant and after 9months I had labor pain and when I told my husband to take me to the hospital he refused to take me to the hospital but he called his mother to come to our house. The mother in law came to my house and she confirmed that I was really in labor pain and then she went out of my house and left me with my husband , after 20 min she came back with other 4women . My mother in law called my husband outside the house and after few minutes he came back to the house and he told me "you must co-parete with this women and obey each and every oder from them" I ask him why but he told that he doesn't want any question from me .
I was still in labor pain and suffering then I request my mother in law to take me to the hospital but I was shocked to hear that there is no going to the hospital and she and the other women are my guest and she explained to me that we are here to do FGM to you today and now before you deliver! My heart skip a bit and I thought of a solution faster then I decided to escape through the back door. On my way I was calling my friends and Anna to come and help me. Anna is my neighbor and a friend and also my tribe, I was lucky Anna picked my call and came running to me. I told her everything and she informed other ladies who also came to join us but by bad luck my mother in law and the other women arived before the car, my mother in law tried to return me back home but my friends being led by Anna were very helpful and powerful by shouting and attracting the community to come and assist. My husband was not there, the 4women brought by my mother in law were defeated by the other women who came to help me. Anna and friends call the police and the police came and I was taken to the hospital but when we reached the hospital doctor said the labor pain was no more because of the shock . I staid in the hospital for two days then the labor pain started again also with the help of the drip and I gave birth to a baby boy after seven hours in labor . I thank God the women took a good and a quick action to come and rescue me and my an born child, I didn't go back to that family again and after the long FGM case between me and my mother in law I came out the winner I'm happy my neighbors and Anna's the strong women were my witnesses in the court. Women are very poweful and can save life when took action .Change starts with a story.
