"I was dismayed as I had seen Moni as a frail woman. After her second delivery, I spoke to Mahila Arogya Samiti members and requested them to counsel Moni's mother-in-law so that she does not conceive yet again and get burdened. MAS members invited Moni and her mother-in-law in their next group meeting where they counseled both of them. Moni soon visited and met the UPHC doctor who explained the basket of choices to her.

I kept on following up with Moni and assured her that the side effects of any FP method are temporary and there is no need to be afraid of any method as it will improve her life. Finally, Moni asked me to help her avail injectable contraceptive." - Heerawati An ASHA in Moradabad
