We are already in the hospital since yesterday night at 11pm due to some signs of labor pains. We knew we already experiencing the early stage of labor. Thanks to our Lamaze class and Ms Chiqui Brosas for giving us a very good orientation and seminar for giving birth. It is our Parental 101 Preparation Classes.
It will be our first born and I am really thankful that we are ready and completed our newborn checklist. Upon getting to the hospital we are also aware that we need to wait every 3 hours for the labor stages. I am glad I still have the chance to sleep for 3 hours for some energy booster for the next exciting moments of being a dad soon.
We chose to be in a Lamaze room at World City Medical Center in Quezon City, since we will try our best to apply what we’ve learned during our sessions. At first, we were just waiting at the Labor Room with 2 other ladies giving birth, but after 10 hours they already gave birth and we are still waiting for our pushing moments. So our OB-Gyne Dra Sylvia Lagman made a decision to gave her an Epidural and medicine for contractions. Three hours later, we are seeing progress and my wife was already crying for severe pains. By 5pm, I was already asked to do their sanitation procedures and be ready for the umbilical cord cutting. Thanks to another lady doctor for assisting me with my camera and volunteered to take videos while we are on our birth delivery. By 5:30pm, there are some suction procedures to help on the delivery, but it didn’t work. So our OB decided to get that scary huge tong to help our baby on the birth canal through forceps. Everything happens so quickly and I was just stunned on seeing my baby being pulled out in a matter of seconds and she cried! And my next duty is to cut the umbilical cord, with no fear – I did it! An extreme happiness indeed for having a major role on the birth of our princess!
