  • Bed rest has been advised for Jennica Garcia 

     

    The founder of Kalinga ni Nanay revealed via a post on Instagram that she is finally pregnant, but she has been advised to be on bed rest. She was forced to cancel all Kalinga ni Nanay classes in December and January 2018 to focus on her pregnancy.

    "My doctor diagnosed our condition with threatened abortion because I've been contracting almost on a daily basis," Jennica said. Her doctor told her she was experiencing contractions even during her transvaginal ultrasound, but Jennica couldn't feel it. "Because of this, I was asked to be on bed rest and take some medications," she added.

    "I appreciate my husband and Mori even more now that I am carrying another baby. Both have been very understanding of what I am going through," Jennica shared. She said she heard 2-year-old daughter Mori telling her dolls to keep their voices down because she's resting.  

    Jennica said she and husband, Alwyn Uytingco, have been trying for a baby since January. "Salamat Panginoon at ito na ang simula ng aking pangarap na magkaroon ng isang malaking pamilya. Dalawa na sila, tatlong chikiting na lang po! We appreciate all those who are praying for the good health of our second child. Maraming salamat po!" Jennica wrote. (pep.ph)

    Bangs Garcia lauds husband for his support during childbirth

    The new mom had nothing but praises for her husband Lloydi Birchmore for being "extremely supportive all the way." In a quick chat with Pep.ph, Bangs describes her husband's experience as "as if he's given birth, too." "He was holding my hand in every contraction I had and took all the painful squeezing each time. I even accidentally scratched his face and bled. Lol!" she said. "Then he put me in the bath and sat on the toilet and talked to me trying to ease the pain, and even did the breathing exercises with me until we got in the car on the way to the hospital. It’s funny that whenever he tried to remind me with the proper breathing, his breathing was sometimes much stronger than mine like as if he really felt my pain," Bangs said. She added that like her Lloydi never got to sleep throughout the entire process. (pep.ph)

    DepEd to monitor children who received Dengvaxia vaccine
    The Department of Education (DepEd) will monitor students who received the now controversial dengue vaccine. According to DepEd Memorandum No. 199, schools in Regions III, IV-A and NCR are to review those given the dengue vaccine, regardless of the number of doses, and closely monitor them for any symptoms of fever and initiate the referral report when necessary. Schools in other regions who did not implement the school-based dengue immunization program are likewise advised to assess students ages 9 and older who might have been given the vaccine via private practitioners in the area or the community-based vaccination. The children who will display symptoms of fever will be attended to by rural health unit (WHU) workers. The Department of Health (DOH) is also considering extending financial support to the RHU and hospital admissions. (gmanetwork.com)
