Part of our BBB programme is education. In fact it is THE most powerful and life changing aspects of BBB. We have fpound that slowly as we talk and mentor and stand with our mums they are making better choices and planning for their babies. This year we are starting with the very basics in Don Bosco.

Eating healthy

Drinking lots of water

Germs and basic first aide

Choosing a hospital or Centre birth

Immunisations and Baby checkups

Contraception

Body Awareness/Avoiding Pregnancy

The Koster’s second birth is a very young lady in Don Bosco. Rose Ann Gunno is only 18 year old and this is her first baby. She is 3 months pregnant and her partner is a worker in Divisoria.

We have so many teen pregnancies in Manila and the Philippines in fact the Philippines is one of the highest rates in the world for teen pregnancies. Something we aim to see reduced. We teach and focus on these aspects continually!

Thanks Kosters and pray for these ladies. It makes a difference. You already have made a difference!

Blessings

Cathy Mark and Chris.

I only just posted about my 6 plus teen pregnancies in Baseco when Pastora Marivic sent me this set of simply heartbreakingly gorgeous photos of a BBBaby mum Danica.

Danica is one of our teen pregnancies only 16 years old and her sweet baby girl Khaira Kate Narce was born on the 10th of June.

She was confined in Hospital for one week as she and the baby had an infection due to a urine infection in Pregnancy, probably untreated until the delivery.  BBBabies helped this young girl with all of her Hospital expenses which probably would have been impossible to pay without us.

They are well and Khaira is being breastfed fully.

I am grateful we were able to help her but saddened that another young girl has began the journey to motherhood at such a young age. Pray we can turn the tide of teenage pregnancy in Baseco. Really agree that we can make a difference to the girls in this area.

A very sweet baby born to a very sweet girl!
