English Bahasa Duri

Giving Birth

A1: Was Rusna’s brother born last night?
B1: Yes! Rusna’s brother was born at four o’clock this morning.
A2: Who was with the mother when she gave birth?
B2: No one was with her when she gave birth except her husband. That’s usual for a Duri woman to give birth all by herself, you know.
A3: Duri women don’t go to a birthing clinic to give birth?
B3: Rarely, because the birthing clinic is so far away, but there are some women who go to the clinic if they are having a difficult birth. When they are still pregnant people usually go to a health center for a check-up.
A4: When children are born, do many people come to visit on a newborn?
B4: Yes, usually many do.
A5: What does one usually bring when going to pay a visit on a newborn?
B5: Many kinds of things, clothing or soap will do, if you want to bring something.
A6: Is a goat usually slaughtered when there is a child born?
B6: If there is money, a goat is bought then slaughtered, then we call people to eat it together. That’s what’s called Haqeqah, if the childis not yet more than a week old.
