#IAmMother: Nomonde’s Story

Nomonde How did you balance raising your baby with all the other responsibilities you had at the time?

Having a baby at a very young age for me; it taught me to be responsible first of all because at the time I was in school, I was schooling. Having a child at home, I had to leave the child at home and then go to school. I took care of my child at the time in such a way that when it was break time, once that bell rings for break, I would run home quickly to go and breastfeed my child and go back to school again and then I would continue with my studies and then every time when there was break time, I would make sure that I breastfeed. So it taught me responsibility and then the love was there and yeah… I took good care of her… even though I was so young.
