OTHER AVAILABLE SERVICE: Hire me as your Doula or Professional Labor Coach during your birth. I will be with you from Active labor until your baby is born. Payment is on the same day. 

Requirement: You should have been able to complete my Birth Class. I would like to be with you in one of your visit with your OB, at least once, to discuss your birth plan. Acceptance fee of P1000. to be settled right after the doctor's visit. It is non-refundable but deductible to the Doula fee after the baby's birth. Some hospitals need permission for a second person/coach to be with the woman during her labor & birth, so you/we would need to acquire that from the hospital.

Important notice: Advice me, any time of the day, as soon as labor has started to allow me ample time to get ready & to meet up with you during Active Phase in the hospital. Since the time of your birth is unpredictable, I will try to proceed immediately as soon as possible. Just like your OB I too I have a partner/reliever I work with who is very caring & just as reliable who can be with you just in case I can not be there.

CANDID PHOTO SHOTS: What better way to capture your wonderful birth experience & remember the first time you held & smelled your baby but through phtographs? Lady photographer recommended by several OB's. Please visit her fabulous work:

20140729 Testimony of Charissa on baby Zachariah, means, "God never forgets".

After being into early stage of labor, 3-4cm. for more than a week with no pain at all. The long wait is now over!πŸ™ˆ Such an indescribable experience until the end.. 

During normal check-up this afternoon. At last I was on Active stage (6-7cm.) at 2p.m. 
Transition stage 8cm. at 4:30pm.
9cm. at around 6:30pm.
Delivery done at exactly 7:47 tonight June 28, 2014!!! πŸ‘ͺ

Thank so much for all your prayers!!! God made it normal, safe and most especially natural lamaze delivery. Bonus pa na very quick delivery during active and transition stage.. 

2 years ago when I and Paulo got married, we prayed "Lord after 2 years mo sana kami bigyan ng baby if it is your will, so we could enjoy our married life ng kaming dalawa lang muna" 1 week before our 2nd year anniversary, PT positive! Praise God!

Paulo prayed for a baby boy. The Lord spoke to him to name our baby "Zechariah" though at that time we don't even know the gender yet.. As he read Zechariah in the bible, Zechariah means "God never forgets", "God always remembers". Indeed the Lord never forget our prayers, kahit ganu pa katagal bago ianswer. Indeed He will answer it according to HIS best time and plan.. 

Please pray for a quick recovery as Iam having fever right now and increase heart rate due to dehydration. Di kasi ko nag lunch😐

All Praises, Honor and Glory to our Lord Jesus Christ!!!

Charissa Magpantay Villanueva Dalawang huling ire ko kinakausap ko na si Lord, ilabas na niya. Yun na! He is a well baby boy Mabel. Apsgar score of 9/9. 5.9lbs. Nag stabilize na vital signs, dehydrated lang talaga last night. Wala pa kong tulog sa ngayon panay latch kasi si Zech.

Kaya yan Mabel! parang almost 7lbs. din lumabas sa biophysical test namin pero nasa 5.9lbs. lang siya sa actual. Baka ganun din chaka as long as kasya sa pelvic bone push yan hehe pag nandun ka na tama si Ms. Chiqui ma-aaply mo yung mga nasa sessions kahit na sobrang daming information na nakuha natin! Super highlight sakin yung urge to push, talagang mafifeel mo pala yung urge sa peak ng contractions.. It's really an advantage pag alam mo yung proseso.. More of relaxation and breathing exercise kami nag focus lalu na sa pushing stage.. Yung deep breath, hold for 10 seconds push! Parang yung last 2-3 pushes ko more than 12-14 seconds na ko naka hold as in todo na to the last breath!haha practice mo na hold ng breath

Dear Chiqui,
We wanted to thank you for your great class! 
It was very helpful for us, even though I ended up having C-section, but 15 hours of contractions and other events wouldnt be taken by us easier if we wouldnt attend your class.
Here are some pics of our baby girl Anastaciya. She turned 2 months on August 5. :)
Thank you and God bless your work and ministry!
