Second Chances

Informal Theme # 2

               We have a secret in our culture, it's not that birth is painful, it's that women are strong.
               There was a mother who was pregnant of her second child. She found out that the baby was again, a girl.

               It was a stormy September when her stomach ached. Her husband immediately brought her to the hospital. She was brought to the operating room and there, she was in labor of giving birth.
               She tried her best to push the baby out but it's not the baby that was coming out but blood! Lots of blood! She thought she wouldn't survive. The doctor asked her to choose: she or the baby? She chose the baby. That time, she was sure that she'll die. According to the doctor, the placenta is blocking the baby's way out.

               The doctor decided to bring her to the Cesarean Section. The baby was brought out, alive. Luckily, the mother was alive too! But when the baby came out, her umbilical cord was tied around her neck. The couple were very happy. The mother thanked God for giving both of them another chance to live.

               You know what? The baby is now 14 years old turning 15. And she's now studying in Cavite National Science High School. Her name was Alexa Anne M. Abad.
