The Wider Image: How India's birth control battle falters in rural district
A nurse helps Zamerun Nisha, 33, breastfeed her baby at the labour ward of a community health centre in Bahadurganj subdivision of Kishanganj district, Bihar, India, March 21, 2023. Just minutes after giving birth to her fifth child at a government clinic in Kishanganj district, Zamerun, who is married to mason Md. Wasim, 40, said she would try to secure permission from her husband to undergo sterilisation before leaving for home, who later agreed to the procedure. "My body cannot take this pressure of having babies anymore," she told Reuters. "I have been lucky to survive each time." REUTERS/Anushree Fadnavis SEARCH "FADNAVIS POPULATION" FOR THIS STORY.
