Sophie’s Story

Sophie first heard about Marie Stopes in 2017 from her sisters who had received implants from the Marie Stopes Goroka clinic.

“It’s hard to pay for school fees and it’s difficult to provide food for the children. I’m always stressed about it. My husband is very supportive. He tried to bring in an income but he’s also illiterate. He gardens and hawks things.”

Sophie had complications with her last birth so had come for an implant. She also wanted advice. She wanted family planning as she has many children and they were not well spaced. Her youngest are 3 years, 2 years and 5 months.

After her first three children, she used the oral contraceptive pill and injections, but found it difficult to regularly travel to the hospital for follow up treatment. She tried the rhythm method but it didn’t work after a while.

She’s pleased that Marie Stopes came to her village, and provided a medical check-up before giving her an implant.

“I’m happy because Marie Stopes makes things clear. They have blown away a cloud. People used to think that Marie Stopes was there to stop you having children. Now I know Marie Stopes is here to help us space the children and for our health and family’s well-being too. They cleared up my misconceptions. For example, I thought that injections and implants dried up the womb. Marie Stopes explained everything clearly.”
