- Alwyn Uytingco penned a sweet message for his daughter Alessi's 1st Birthday
- He revealed that he caught his daughter as soon as she popped out because the midwife got stuck in a traffic
- His wife Jennica Garcia-Uytingco gave birth at home through a process called water birthing
Alwyn Uytingco reminisced the day their 2nd baby was born. He penned a sweet birthday post for Baby Alessi's 1st Birthday.
According to him, his wife Jennica opted to undergo water birthing, so they did it at home.
“Hindi siguro alam ng karamihan na sa bahay ipinanganak si Alessi, sa proseso ng ‘water birth’. May mga dahilan si Jennica kung bakit ito ang gusto niyang paraan ng panganganak, pero hindi iyon ang ikukuwento ko.”
They went to the hospital for a checkup, and they had to hurry home to prepare as his wife was about to give birth. They traveled for 45 minutes because of the rainy weather which caused a 'hellish' traffic jam.
According to Alwyn, he felt nervous heading home with Jennica's contractions getting more frequent.
"Kaya mas lalong nakakakaba! Kasi puwedeng lumabas yung bata anytime sa gitna ng biyahe namin!"
They made it home safely, but 30 minutes after arriving, Jennica gave birth to Alessi. The midwife was not able to attend to them immediately because she also got stuck in traffic.
“Pero salamat sa Diyos at hindi nangyari ‘yon, nakarating kami ng sakto sa oras. Pag dating sa bahay, 30 mins lang at ayan na! Lumabas kaagad si Alessi at ako na kaniyang tatay ang sumalo! (Na-late ng dating ang kumadrona dahil din sa traffic.)”
Jennica's post about undergoing water birth elicited mixed reactions from the netizens as reported earlier by KAMI. They also opted for lotus birthing which means leaving the umbilical cord uncut after childbirth so that the baby is left attached to the placenta until the cord naturally separates at the umbilicus.
DISCLAIMER: A home birth is not for everyone. Always consult your health care provider, especially if you have diabetes, chronic hypertension, a seizure disorder, or any chronic medical condition.
