The Birth of Baby Raphael
A photo essay on the birth of Baby Raphael Anthony Uy Diaz...
We decided to have the birth take place in Makati Medical Center on the 5th floor of the new wing. The doctor opted to confine us on Feb. 9, around 10pm, when Rache was already in active labor.
We were debating naming BB5 as Raphael Isidro vs. Raphael Antonio. We wanted the second name to be the name of a saint. For Aidan, it was St. Dominic; for Joshua, it was St. Francis Xavier; and for Raphael, St. Anthony, who is also my patron saint. :)
It was a very smooth delivery -- the natural Lamaze way. No anesthesia, no epidural. Just good ol' hee hee hoo and push. I'm so proud of my wife, Rache, for bearing all the pain and for pushing just once.
Thanks to our OB, Dr. Lilibeth Genuino!
Thanks to the nurses and staff of Makati Medical Center -- very professional and very caring! We were deciding whether to give birth in the new St. Luke's Hospital in Bonifacio Global City or Makati Med. We are glad that we made a great choice. :)

P.S. Thanks also to Geiser Maclang for the lovely bouquet of flowers with balloon when we got home. It was designed by no other than Michi Calica. :) Thanks so much!
