Powerful Life Event – My Birth Story

I had an awesome and wonderful pregnancy journey. I really enjoyed it, from the weird feeling of having someone kicking and moving inside my womb, up to taking advantage of always being in the priority zone hihi.

Giving birth is one of the most exhilarating life event in every women. It is the most powerful thing that a woman can do.
My birthing experience was amazing. When I started to feel the contractions getting more painful and painful, we went straight to the hospital. I was already 7cm when I got there. I felt excited because the day that we’re finally going to meet my little one has come, but I was also scared because it is my first time to be in this kind of situation. I am just so thankful that my husband was always there for me. He eases the pain that I’m feeling and never left me behind. He was there by my side all throughout the night up to the time I gave birth to our child inside the labor room.

It became more painful when I am on my 9.5 cm already. It is painful, but a different kind of pain because I knew that we were finally going to meet our little one. I can say that I am at my strongest point during the whole birthing moment. The doctors and my OB-Gyne was impressed on how I push that baby out and only had 1 hour and 30 min of labor time. I gave birth to Alessandria Summer last May 16, 2016 and she arrived at exactly 05:29 am. When she came out, me and my baby had our very first skin to skin contact and it was surreal! I can’t believe I am finally holding the miracle that I had in my womb for 9 months. I find it truly extraordinary of what a woman’s body can do.

It is really what we call the miracle of life. Giving birth to my child was worth every minute.IMG_5755IMG_5715IMG_5733(Our first family picture)

IMG_5785IMG_5803I am really thankful to the doctors of St. Lukes Medical Center, Global City. With their expertise and great work, I had a safe and memorable delivery. Of course, to my OB-Gyne, Dr. Angelica Ann Chua who did a remarkable effort in taking care of me all throughout my pregnancy journey up to giving birth. To my husband and my family who’s always by my side no matter what. And to God for giving us such a HUGE blessing.
