Giving birth is not always easy, even if it’s via an elective C-section. Lara Quigaman and Marco Alcaraz chose to welcome their third son, Moses Marc, on the same date they had their second son, Tobias Nolan.
“My wife is the strongest person I’ve ever met,’ Marco wrote on Instagram to announced their new vlog about their third son's birth. “We love you, Moses!” he added.
Lara ate her heart out the night before her scheduled C-section
In the Alcaraz Family’s latest vlog, Lara was admitted to the Makati Medical Center on September 16, 2020, a day ahead of her scheduled C-section. That night, they had a dinner date in the hospital “before they’re outnumbered by their kids.”
“Kapag CS ka kasi, kailangan at least eight hours before the surgery, Hindi ka kakain,” the mom of three shared. “Kaya kumain na siya ng marami,” Marco quipped. Seems fair enough because, after the operation, Lara wouldn’t be able to take in anything, except for sips of water. When she’s allowed to eat, it’ll also be a liquid diet initially.

Asked if she’s worried, Lara replied: “Hindi naman, and it’s not because matapang ako, but it’s simply because it’s God who’s giving me the peace talaga. He’s the one who comforts me, and I know that He will take care of me no matter what happens.”
Marco tells husbands to love their wives even more
Due to the pandemic, Marco couldn’t be with Lara when she gave birth to Moses. He had to wait in the room. “Iba lang yung kaba na naghihintay ako sa room mag-isa,” he admitted.
Marco also encouraged all husbands to love their wives even more. He said pregnancy and giving birth is not a joke. “Mahirap. Kung pwede lang na ako na gagawa para sa kanya,” he said.
Before the C-section, Lara had a video call to greet Tobin a happy birthday. Then, after being wheeled into the operating room, she had spinal block anesthesia, and in just a few minutes later, baby Moses was born.
