MEET MARILYN AGUILAR
She is in her forties
This is her story…………..as I recorded in her interview when i visited Baseco a month ago
Baby Boy – Mark Christian 5months old in photo (Born Nov 2011)
This is Marilyn’s 9th child!
Her husband is a pedicab driver who earns only a couple of Australian dollars daily.
She was anxious to stop having any more children
PREGNANCY AND BIRTH
In order to have a tubal ligation she needed to go to Fabella Hospital
She attended all checkups there
She had all tests and scans there
It was a good pregnancy
She did attend Fabella for her birth and it was a successful birth with no problems.
She did have a ligation before she left Fabella
Marilyn was one of the few mothers who did not breastfeed
Not for a personal reason but purely medical
She had inverted nipples
She showed me and they were seriously inverted
Marilyn was a grateful recipient of a tubal ligation
Her baby days are over
The baby is completely immunised
Marilyn was particularly grateful for BBB
She tearfully thanked me for the sponsorship and her subsequent ligation
To her it represented the end of a long baby bearing era
The extreme financial hardship that she faced each time a baby was born was at an end.
She was one of the few that thanked me and her sponsors Australian Christian Churches
It was special.
Mother and baby are very happy and healthy
Read about the battle that the poor women like Marilyn face daily in Manila
This is the kind of story we love
Lives changed, baby and mother happy
One life at a time…………
