While I was pregnant with my son I regularly lurked parenting forums for information on how much it would cost to give birth at Makati Medical Center (MMC). The information I found was either outdated or vague, so now that I have given birth I’ve decided to share my birthing experience at Makati Medical Center.
The Clueless Mom.
I cannot think of anything else that could best describe my position right now. So before I let you in on the musings of “The Clueless Mom”, let me tell you a bit more about myself.
I gave birth to my son Ethan last month. Though he was from my second pregnancy, he is my “first baby”. I lost my daughter from my first pregnancy back in 2011, but I’ll leave that story for another day.
So yeah, I am a new mom – a clueless mom. I have never taken care of a baby before. Unlike most people, I never got the chance to take care of a baby nephew or niece since I am the first from my siblings to have a baby. Though my mother and aunt are here to help me out, they haven’t taken care of a baby in years!
If you are a new mom like me, I guess you can imagine what I’m going through. However, I’m pretty sure you’ll agree that the joy of having a mini version of you coo, gurgle and smile at you surpasses everything else, including sleepless nights and dirty diapers.
With that said, join me as I enter the world of Motherhood. I’ll be glad to share my stories and booboos along the way, for the benefit of other clueless moms like me. And hey, if you have any tips or advice to share, by all means please feel free to leave your comments.
