NATASHA CAMPBELL
BAROSSA VALLEY SA

AILEEN RENACIO


BACKGROUND
Lives in a part of Baseco called Aplaya, which is very near the sea, it is an area which often floods, the area was recently underwater in a typhoon and the water was up to Pastora Marivic’s waist, when she visited the area the women were sitting on top of the rooves or on top of plastic boxes with their belongings in. Here is a photo of some of the leaders of Jn14;12 at Aplaya, you can see the beach (hmmmm) in the background.

PREGNANCY and BIRTH
Aileen’s pregnancy went well and she had all checkups and testing
She gave birth at The Mother and Child Hospital

BABY
The baby was a girl born on the 19th of June
Her name is Charline she weighed 2.9kg
She is breastfeeding
She had all screening and immunisations

However she was admitted into The Gat Andreas Hospital on the 29th August witth an infection.
We actually visited her and gave her a quilt and a Days for Girls Kit in hospital.
She was sick with PCAP-B, Pediatric Community Aquired Pneunomia (which is apparently a Bacterial infection)
The doctor assured me she was getting better as well.

So be assured Natasha your sponsorship went towards her care in hospital as well. Thanks so much you made a difference.

SALLY CODIRA

20160901_102955

BACKGROUND
Sally is 41 years old
This is her 7th pregnancy!
She is 8 months pregnant.
She lives in an area very close to church in Tambukhan
She is trying to convince husband to have ligation but he is much more open to Family Planning. She wants to but he is not sure (lots of superstition surrounding Family Planning, also if the family has a Catholic background the husband can be very resistant to Family Planning because the Church advocates big families) We are constatntly fighting against this mindset.

PREGNANCYShe has had testing and ultrasound so far and all is well.
She plans to have the baby in the HEalth Centre and wants to Breastfeed and did with all of her others.

BIRTH
We will let you know of the progress when we hear.

SAMMY GODDARD and PINAFORES PANTRY

Here are your 2 mums, one of them has had their baby and was sick in hospital so your sponsorship has blessed this family in a time of great need!

EVALYN CELEBRAN/ RADO

BACKGROUND
Evalyn lives in an area in Baseco called Gasungang. She has a partner husband who is a Labourer and they live with their Mother-In-Law.
She is 21 and this is her first baby

PREGNANCY AND BIRTH
She had a good pregnancy
All testing and scans good
Good birth

BABY
Baby boy Galvin was born on June 13th 2016
He was 9lb and healthy
He is having all immunisations
She breastfed the baby and now is working so the Mother-In-Law is caring for the baby so they are bottle and breastfeeding him.

MARY-JOY VILLAGONZALO/RELESO

 

BACKGROUND

Mary-Joy lives in a part of Baseco called Aplaya, this is very close to the sea and often floods, the area was recently underwater in a typhoon and the water was up to Pastora Marivic’s waist, when she visited the area the women were sitting on top of the rooves or on top of plastic boxes with their belongings in.

PREGNANCY AND BIRTH
As far as we know the pregnancy went well for Mary-Joy as we had limited conversation with her, but her pregnancy was fine.
This baby was actually born at Home (which is not ideal and not what we advocate but it does happen, but as soon as he was born they took him to the Baseco Health Centre who checked him and gave him injections and newborn screening. See Mark’s Blog for details HERE

BABY
Baby was born on the 4th June 2016
His name is Prince Kian
He was 9.8lb and very healthy
She was breastfeeding him
He then developed a serious Chest infection and was admitted into The Gat Andreas Hospital on the 29th of August with BPM (Bronchial Pneumonia)
We visited him in The Gat soon after that and he was getting better slowly.

The most important thing is that sponsorship allows these parents to buy medicine and travel to and fro to the hospital, that is extremely important as every single swab and injection costs in The Philippines. So without Sponsorship this baby and his family would have had a big struggle to pay.

Thanks Sammy for your sponsorship, you really really made a difference.
Love Aunty  Cath

Birth

Baby was born, but had a difficult circumstance

She was already a single mother, she met a man had this baby to him. However she then found out that he already has a wife!

His original wife was an Overseas Filipino Worker, she comes back from her time overseas and returns to her wayward husband who has taken Jinky as a wife, turns her out of the house and now Jinky has no way to support her new baby and she must give her child away (probably to relations in the Province) BECAUSE SHE HAD TO WORK TO SURVIVE!

Jinky was extremely sad, it is a typical situation of woman turning to a man for support and a means to live. He was unable to provide it the BABY AND MOTHER  SUFFER.

GENALYN ABRANCILLO

(one of our very first sponsorships)

Genalyn lives very close to prayer house, she was one of my most faithful women who attended the Birthing classes in Baseco, I am thrilled to be able to bless her and sponsor her pregnancy.

I was very excited to be there just as the gorgeous baby John Carlo was born in Baseco. Again the baby is very healthy, chubby and happy! I had lots of cuddles with this baby and photos! Genelyn had a good pregnancy and a very non-eventful birth, thankfully as she birthed at home with a local unqualified midwife called a Hilot (Not what we advocate or recommend, so we did not fund the birth but the baby was cared for pre and post birth)

The baby’s name is John Carlo, he is still being breastfed as well

UPDATE March 2011

This is Genelyn’s third baby, he is now (1 year and 6 months old)

She told me recently that she was scared to have a ligation……..but she and her husband are probably considering more children

JESSICA BOTIALAO

   

FAMILY HISTORY

This is Jessica’s second pregnancy

Her other child is about 2 years old

She actually was very emotional and scared, because she lost one child as the surviving child was actually one of twins

The baby was lost during an emergency C’Section

She was still grieving her other lost child

It was a great honour to encourage and love on her, I was even able to pray with her and assure her that her baby was safe in the arms of Jesus.

PREGNANCY

In the photo (March 2012)  Jessica was actually 5 months

This pregnancy is proceeding well, although she has some worries after loosing one of her twins in the first birth

She will be going to Fabella for her birth, but she is attending Baseco Lying In for checkups (click on links for more details on the birthing places)

Fabella is a great choice for the birth as they are renown for their emergency procedures and care

I am pleased to announce the birth of Jessica’s baby Roberto, as you can see he is amazingly healthy and robust for a Baseco baby! So thrilled for Jessica this is a balm for her after the death of her twin baby.

Jessica and Roberto

ROSE TALLE

I have known Rose for years, she helped me out with washing when we lived in Baseco

This is Rose’s 4th Pregnancy

I was not able to interview her as she was visiting her province and family with her kids

She did however have a good pregnancy and an uneventful birth

She had a baby boy Carl George Talle

She seems very happy!
