She calls him Miracle because he was born prematurely and was her high risk pregnancy.

Growing up with a strict and disciplined father, she faced challenges studying her preferred course as her dad did not agree to her decision.

Due to that, she has given her children total freedom to explore their preferred field of study, in which they have begun impacting society positively.

Her first and second children, as she mentioned, are doing incredibly well in their various fields.

As a mother of two girls and a boy, she is proud to have given birth to these amazing children as she calls them.

“My children are amazing, and I’m blessed to have these children. Each of them is different in their own way.”

The professor also disclosed the challenges she faced in early motherhood as she gave birth to her first child while doing her PhD. She never gave up.

Her primary objective is to be progressively redundant in the lives of her children. This, according to her, has been helpful due to her kind of work.

Prof. Kaufmann has empowered her children to be independent in all their endeavors.
