Hi, sis! Expectant mothers with pregnancy induced hypertension or pre-eclampsia is not eligible for the WeCare package. I had pre-eclampsia during my first pregnancy. I gave birth full term naman, CS nga lang kase aside from the hypertension, breech pa yung daughter ko. My baby was very small when she came out (less than 2kgs) because of the pre-eclampsia, but she was healthy. Although during our stay at the hospital, she developed a blood infection so she had to stay at the hospital for a week. She never caught up with the weight of the other kids her age but she was never sickly so we're still thankful. Our hospital bill only amounted to around 110K for both me and my daughter (even with her staying for more than a week). But it was in 2007 and in UST Hospital. When I checked with my OB in St.Luke's now, uncomplicated CS in semi-private room will cost us less than 100K. Pretty much the same with the WeCare package
Hi sis hailey06! I gave birth yesterday, emergency cs at 32 weeks and my baby only weighs 2lbs 4oz. Fortunately he doesnt need oxygen for he can breath on his own. And nakapupu na rin cia sa loob kaya naka antibiotic cia ngaun but his blood work ups are all fine. Sabi ng pedia nya technically palalakihin nalang cia. They might start feeding him 2morow kc my breastmilk nman na rin ako.hopefully mag gain cia agad ng weight at wlang ibang complications. Im so happy and relieved becoz his APGAR score is 9 which is near perfect score.
