The village in Ghana where childbirth is banned

In the Ghanaian village of Mafi Dove, pregnant women are not allowed to deliver in the village because it’s believed that it will offend the gods.

Some expectant mothers end up making last-minute journeys in excruciating pain to avoid breaking the tradition.

But some women are starting to challenge the practice and demand they be allowed to stay to have their babies.
