What was the date of your first birth? I mean the very first time you gave birth, even if the child is no longer living, or is the child of a man other than your current partner.
You need to obtain the year of the woman's first birth, which means the very first time she gave birth, even if the child is no longer living, or is the child of a partner other than her current one. As with all questions about dates and ages, you may need to probe to obtain the best information.
Write in the date of the first birth if she knows it, and go on to Q. 3. If she does not know, circle the 9s for "doesn't know". If she cannot give the date, the number of years elapsed since the birth of her first child is an acceptable answer. Ask: Q2b
