We Do It Better Together

This visit to Manila bought  many things to Birthing Better Babies including a team who partnered with BBBabies from Impact Church (in NSW and South Australia) which is incidentally MY church now! We planned and networked before we left but could not really SEE how things would work until our feet were on the ground in Baseco. It was a great journey!

Included in this team were Midwives, Student Midwives, Students aspiring to be nurses and normal mums and Nanas with a heart for the Women and Babes in Manila (and a few fellas who learnt a lot!!)  What a joy it was to work with them. Some words that spring to mind when I think about this team was

EXPERIENCED
PROFESSIONAL
RESPONSIVE
TEACHABLE
TEAM
SHARING
JOY
LOVE
PASSION
KINGDOM
SERVED

They laughed they cried they sweated and taught their hearts out

They shared my burden of teaching and we certainly achieved so much more together that I have done in the past by myself. It was a great 10 days, with lives from both nations impacted forever!

New babies and bellies

This team worked and sweated and cried for these beautiful mums in Baseco, they shared a burden and carried the weight.

Thanks Impact Team, until we do it again

Birth Highlights for Lighthouse

One of our most commited sponsors is Lighthouse Church in Melbourne,

Here are some of the highlights from last year’s births, so exciting to see healthy babies being born in Baseco!

Roselyn Espinosa had a gorgeous baby boy John Mark

He is pictured here with his  2 sisters, they actually care for this gorgeous baby boy as his mother was forced back into the workforce. She however breastfed for as long as possible and now his sisters bottle feed him. They are responsible girls and look after John well. But again this situation shows the enormous pressure these families are under.

Thank you Lighthouse for sponsoring this mum, birth and baby, he is certainly healthy and you had a great hand in that outcome!

Here is another Lighthouse success Mary Jane Caintoy’s baby was a 9lb boy, great hospital birth with no complications.

 

Another teen pregnancy Annalyn had a baby boy Daniel , yes she is in a relationship but she is still very young, but her baby was big and healthy!.

Just a beautiful photo of another baby happily breastfeeding, Emily Saler and her baby girl Rhea Mae born safely in hospital.

 

These are only a few of the many, have a peep on the Lighthouse Sponsor Page, I am sure this church will have such a reward in heaven…..looking after the little ones here on earth blesses those in heaven

Thanks Lighthouse

Cathy, Mark and Chris   xxx
