i am not convinced that she would or could learn how to correctly use
a diaphragm. and sponges are not available anywhere there.

the absolute best thing for her would be a tubal ligation. and were
it not for the fact that she would be in the hospital for days (they
don't have the new techniques that make it an outpatient thing here)
she would do it too. and her husband agrees that it would be a good
thing but for that fact. cause if she was in the hospital who would
take care of the kids. (don't say it, i know... but it's unusual for
a gypsy man to agree to such a thing so i can't really push it).
