The Awa-Wanga profess to be able to tell the sex of an unborn child ; in the case of a first child, if it is going to be a girl the mother will remain fat during her pregnancy, if it is going to be a male child she will get thin. In the case of a second child suppose the first child is a boy and the second child is going to be a girl, the boy will get very thin, if the child is going to be of the same sex as the first child it will not get thin.
