"This makoti is barren," Nosisi Mbeyi's mother-in-law tells anyone willing to listen.
Mbeyi and her husband have being trying to have a child since they got married 10 years ago. She tells Parent24 that her mother-in-law blames her for their lack of children. She used to embarrass Mbeyi around friends and tell everyone that she is the problem.
"Little did my mother-in-law know that her son was declared medically infertile, due to the quality of his sperm and how low his sperm count was, during all of our consultations in the past five years - until we stopped consulting doctors."
