He is safe in the arms of his family,  very important with girls like this. Without a supportive family she will not be able to work and provide for her child!

VICKY  PRENSICA

Note this lady replaced your previous Mum,  Lindy Estrada….

Baseco has such a transient population many times we start a sponsorship and the mother simply disappears. We are not sure what happens to them, sometimes they are moved back to the province (the country) to their grandparents, sometimes they shift quickly and cannot tell us. Either way we start again with a new mum!

I actually do not have a photo of the mum in this instance but I do have a baby photo

Background and History

  • Older mum married in a stable relationship
  • This is the mum’s 5th baby, so she was very experienced

Pregnancy and Birth

  • Had all tests and ultrasounds all were successful
  • Baby boy Joven was born on the 24th September 2014
  • He was 3.5kg
  • He had all new born screening
  • Joven is healthy and chubby
  • He is fully breastfed

Thanks so much to Miss S and The Secombs.

You are a blessing to me and Birthing Better Babies

Each of these beautiful babies will start life better because you all DID something! Well done! You have made a difference, when I get to Baseco I will give these babies a kiss from you!

Hugs Cathy
