    1. Na ma-educate ka IF gusto mo. You always have the option to ignore naman eh, instead of hating immediately. How about that?

    6. Well, aminin natin na maganda yung house nila at cguro naman yung kwarto nila eh mas maganda at mas kumportable pa sa isang hospital suite at kaya nila mag-hire ng magagaling na midwife kaya choice nila yan. Pero kung average or masang Pilipino, syempre sa ospital or lying-in ka nalang manganganak.

      Delete
    7. Baka kasi tularan ng iba yung ginawa niyang panganganak sa bahay nila. Ang sinasabi niya yung naging experience niya the first time siya manganak sa ospital eh ang dami ng mga gamot na ganamit sa kanya at hindi siya pabor sa sobrang dami ng gamot na iniintroduce sa sistema ng isang manganganak dahil maapaektohan yung baby at yung health ng mother. Pinag isipan niya ng husto yung panganganak na gusto niya at kumuha siya ng mga dalubhasa na reputable, ibig sabihin hindi puchu puchong OBGYN, Midwife, at Doula. At malapit lang sila sa ospital at madali siyang maidadala doon in case magkaroon ng complications during labor and delivery. Nag recommend rin siya ng mga resources in case yung makabasa ng post na yan eh interesado rin mag research tungkol sa vbac.

      My take: Obviously, this type of choice (as with any other choice in life) is not for everybody. Pero para doon sa mga interesado, nandyan sa post niya yung disclaimer at posibleng resources na available at pwedeng gamitin. Yun na nga, sana lang maging maingat at maging maayos ang pag-iisip ng mga taong makakuha ng “inspiration” sa mga ganyang methods. In the end, dapat pa rin mangibabaw ang safety ng Mother at Baby sa pamamaraan ng pagluwal at immediate after care ng mag-ina. Baka maging mas mahal rin ang method na ito dahil kailangan ng mga espesyalista at hindi ordinaryong OBGYN, Midwife at Doula. Sa mga katulad ni Rica Peralejo for sure she paid a good price for their professional and specialized services, add to that her celebrity status—sino ba namang OBGYN ang ipapauwi at ipagkakatiwala yung doppler niya sa isang pasyente??? So there are some favors and perks rin dahil celebrity siya or dahil mayaman sila (compared to most). For the general population, proceed with caution, money, and connections, in case things go awry, that way, you would have the means to come after whoever you’re able to place blame on, other than yourself.

    8. Ang OA e nung araw naman talagang pwede manganak sa bahay assisted by a midwife.

    9. Her body, jer rules pero sa akin lang naman , mas safe sa hospital kasi if anything happens, may mga nirse at doktor on stand by.May mga machines agad to monotor your condition and the baby's condition. I also tried vbac after CS while in the hospital bit in my case, hindi pwede as seen in on the monitor. Kaya na CS pa rin pero at least sa hospital nandyan agad ang operating room and yhe team of doctors.

  5. May pambayad naman, sa hospital n lang. Delikado pag nagka problema, every second counts sa survival ng bata at nanay. At mas kompleto ang gamit sa ospital, diretso na ICU o nursery pag may problema. Pag nasa bahay, matatagalan pa,baka huli na pagdating niyo sa ospital.

  6. Napaka delikado ng ginawa nya: maswerte lang sya walang nangyari masama sakanila ng baby. Mga tao tlaga ngayon para lang mag viral lahat gagawin kahit sobrang risky. Saka sa panahon ngayon ang oa na. Di naman sukatan ang pain na naramdman mo sa labor para masabing mabuting ina ka eh. Oa tlaga swear.

    5. Kung napaka delikado ng ginawa niya - so is selective CS. VBAC is safe. Nakasanayan lang kasi natin na once CS, always CS. Makalumang pananaw na po iyan mga Inang. As with home birth, sa mga di nag abalang basahin ang post niya - she had loads of support - Doula, midwife, OB and a nearby hospital for emergencies.

      And as what I had mentioned in FPs previous post re this - this is all about INFORMED choices.

      Delete
    6. Yup, OA and irresponsible.

      Delete
    7. 10:16 - Delikado din ang VBAC. May mga babaeng "boggy" ang uterus, at may chance din na mag rupture ito. Hindi ito makalumang pananaw. Hindi porke uso at makabago, mag VBAC ka na rin. Laging on the side of safety dapat. Don't make generalizing statements na "VBAC is safe" because it is not for everybody, at hindi masama ang "makalumang pananaw" na once CS, always CS.

  8. Actually nakakarelate ako sa kanya. When I gave birth (im first time mom) marami ako kasabay sa ward na gusto din sa susunod sa bahay na lang dahil nga sa dami ng tinuturok sa ospital di lang sa mother kundi pati sa baby. Sabi nga ng mga matatanda noon wala naman daw yun swero, mga lab test etc pero okay naman daw sila. May mga taong natatrauma talaga sa treatment sa ospital. May nabasa na din ako ganyan na dahil sa sobrang trauma niya pinagaralan niya mabuti on how to give birth at home at yun na rin ang tinuturo niya. I forgot kung anung ebook un. Sa kindle ko lang nabasa.

  11. These celebrities will do anything just for the likes and comments from people in socmed. Yung feeling nila sukatan na lang ng kalakasan ng isang babae ang hirap ng pinagdaanan sa panganganak. Lahat ng nanay pinagdaanan but not everyone overshares like this. Magkakaiba man na sitwasyon pero lahat dumaan sa hirap. Buti na lang talaga hindi uso ang ganitong paandar 30 years ago.

    4. Its her choice parang sa anti vaxers pero sa akin lang, this is unsafe. Pwede naman mag vbac ng nasa hospital setting para kung magka emergency may mga aparatus at mga doktor agad.

      Delete
    5. This! Hindi sukatan ng pagiging babae or pagiging ina kung paano ka nanganak, even my obgyne told me that probably from her experience that “you do not have to prove anything”. I bet marami sya patients na super insistent to give birth unmedicated, at home, water birth, whatever.. i have nothing against those options, but not everyone is qualified to undergo such options, so many things to consider like age, complications, the safety of the child most importantly.

      Delete
  12. My take on this: She can do VBAC because it’s her life. And as she said nag research naman siya. I respect that. May benefits naman talaga ang VBAC. Sa microbiome, vaginal bacteria, less exposure sa meds, etc. Everyone respects that she is faithful and prayerful.

    Although, aside from the risky nature, I think the problem stems from how she presented it to the public, considering na “influencer” siya.

    Behind the comments na “delikado” “wrong” “risky” “dangerous”, FEELINGS OF MOMS were triggered:

    1. Hindi naman ata kailangan idetail pa na 25 hours siya naglabor at ilang hours siya nag push (daw). These details TRIGGER feelings sa ibang mommies na, hindi umabot sa 25 hours nag epidural na or nag CS na. Not everyone is like her case. Nasense ko lang may konting yabang ito, if i may say. Im sure matiisin naman siya pero sana not the details na.

    2. Tao lang, nakakaramdam din ng FEELINGS. What if you are a mom at hindi ka nag tiis ng 25 hours, or you chose CS, or you were medically adviced to have CS... seeing her post may bring feelings na inadequate ka, you are weak, or sumuko ka kaagad. While she is filled with praises and admirations because of her mental and emotional strength. Not everyone is as strong as her. AND THAT IS OKAY.

    3. Tao lang. Her posting her VBAC in details is kinda saying na: If this isn’t the kind of your birthing story. You did NOT do everything for your child. That you did not research enough. You did not make the effort.

    4. Lastly, if she posted her story with a little sensitivity and at may konting caution sa feelings ng makakabasa, then this would have been okay sana. Not everyone is like her. Mentally, emotionally strong with full support of her family.

    3. Eto yung sinsabi ko before. Kanya kanyang trip nga pero, you are an influencer with thousands of followers. So why need i brag. Dami tuloy triggered. Well ganun na ata talaga ang buhay ngayon. Everything is pm social media. Although lately im shying away from posting anything pro shares na lang. Ganun ata pag tumatanda. To each his own nga. Pero these celebreties, they should be responsible in posting content, maglagay ng disclaimer or what. Be sensitive ika nga, pero knowing rica medyo may pagka mayabang sooo we netizens should also be responsible in dealing with these contents wag masyado seryosohin.

      Delete
    4. As a woman of faith may pagka rigid itong si rica. I remember dati kung mamsabi sya about being against premarital sex e punong puno ng self righteousness. Na ipapa feel nya talaga na ang dumi dumo ng gumagawa noon. Nakalimutan nya ata na naghubad sya sa pelikula dati. Yeah hubad as in hubad.

      Delete
    5. same as her sister paula! ganyan din ang ganap nya sa montessori way of raising her child. it is admirable in some ways but wherever they go they always expect places or even public resorts to be fit to their "way of life". Even public resorts ineexpect nila na dapat solemn private and conducive sa montessori environment na dapat sa kanila at anak nila. Same as Rica, she has a tendency to make you feel inadequate as a mom because you do not have the same principle as her when it comes to raising your child. They think ao highly of themselves just because they try to deviate from the norms or dahil binabalik nila ung matagal na nating nakaugalian before maging modern ang lahat at akala nila sila lang nakaalam nun

      Delete
    6. I agree with you. Not everyone decides or can do a natural,unmedicated birth like hers pero hindi ibig sabihin e hindi sila well informed. Some mothers decide on elective ceasarean on their next pregnancy because of the birth trauma from first vaginal delivery(baby needing resuscitation and intubation dahil ndistress during labor or because of a hypoxic event during birth,baby being stuck in birth canal) because they fear it might happen again-- take note,birth trauma shouldnt be taken lightly. Some moms have to be induced because of a complication (pre eclampsia,gestational hypertension/diabetes). These moms who needed/decided on medical intervention shouldnt be shamed for it or made to feel less,or mas less worthy to be celebrated ang birth story nila dahil hindi nila kinaya ang natural unmedicated birth. Masyado kase bngyan ni Rica ng emphasis na non medicated at natural ang birth nya..e in reality iba iba ang birth experiences ng mga moms.

      Delete
    13. I don’t understand how some moms can be triggered by her post. As women, why can’t we all just be supportive of each other’s life choices? Giving birth is not a competition. I had a homebirth/water birth for my second pregnancy and compared to my first delivery which was in the hospital, it was a less painful and more relaxing experience. So to those who think that natural birthers are stronger because they endured a “more painful labor.” You are all misinformed. Having an epidural doesn't guarantee a pain free birth. And sure, you don’t feel a thing during CS birth. But how about the postpartum pain? In one way or another all moms will feel pain during labor, there is no escaping it. In general, for natural birth: there’s pain during labor but recovery is easy breezy, for medicated birth: there’s less pain during labor and pain during recovery, for CS: there’s no pain during labor but lots of pain during postpartum. So this debate on who did it better is really stupid. There is no correlation between one mom having a natural birth making you less of a mom because you had a medicated birth. Every woman who gives birth experiences pain- physically and emotionally. Instead of bringing down another mom, you probably need to do some soul searching and find where your insecurities are coming from.

    14. I had VBAC with my second child too, no epidural din. I was so proud of myself for making it through, so I understand how she feels. But I did not feel the need to post it. She's a celebrity and I'm not. lol

      Delete
    15. 3:23 sa haba ng post mo obviously di mo naintindihan kung bakit triggered yung commenters dito. The issue is not the home birth per se, but the fact that she placed her and her baby's life in danger by giving birth at home knowing fully well that she is at risk of uterine rupture.

    5. She is just too OA. Sobrang arte lang.

      Delete
  15. It is so apparent na meron siyang sense of superiority sa ibang mga mothers na hindi ginawa ang ginawa niya. It’s as if she is fishing for compliments na parang super hero ang abilities niya and that she must be a more superior type of woman to have gone through and endure “all that” for her child. But siyempre naman kailangan in the guise of self righteousness na dahil makadiyos at sobrang prayerful kaya naman siya ang pinagpala. Pwede ba?! Hindi maiiwasan ng iba na magkaroon ng feeling of inadequacy sa pabida na post na yan. Oo na Ikaw na ang magaling at bukod na pinagpala ng diyos. Masyadong OA na. Sarilihin na lang niya yung journey niya at hindi siya nakakatulong sa journey ng mga ibang nanay na naghirap rin at nagluwal ng mga anak nila using conventional methods that work for them and their family. Napaka pa-humble pero very self-absorbed naman.

  16. Her body, her rules. Im pregnant but I will not go through what she went through. Im glad she posted this so women like me will know about these options. Still it is a no for me. Women should respect other women’s choices. Rica said she became sickly after her caesarian operation so she wanted to get away with meds since it ruined her gut. If you dont know what it means, better be silent. It is her choice after all.

    1. Lol. Giving birth has nothing to do with the gut. Caesarian doesn’t touch your digestive system at all. It’s a different space. Ano beh.

    2. Baka what Rica meant was CS meant taking antibiotics (to prevent infections) which lead to killing both good & bad bacteria in the gut. Though you can take probiotics to replenish the gut with good bacteria.

  21. napakaraming morbid complications ng VBAC.
    For a high risk pregnancy like hers, if she was a bit more responsible for her baby, then she should have opted for a hospital delivery.
    kahit na sabihin mo pang napakalapit lang ng hospital sa yo. those precious minutes lost in travel in case u have to go to the hospital can make u regret your actions.

    pero un nga buhay mo yan.
    the least u can do was to accept that you that u know you endangered ur unborn child, and to warn ur followers that what u did is not for everyone and the risk is high.
    u say hospitalshave very high rates of complications. so does that mean giving birth at home is the better option when theres no medical personnel around who knows how to interpret and clinicslly correlate everything?
    ikaw na nagsabi na u waited so long to have another child and you just risked everything just like that. all of a sudden u just decided to give birth at home.
    tsk tsk
    but then buhay mo nga yan.

  23. I did a home birth for my son when I was 25. Siguro dahil bata pa ako sobrang lakas ng loob ko to do the natural birth.I only have a midwife on my side,actually maganda siya kase comfortable ka sa lahat ng galaw mo.mas mabilis ang recovery mo kumpara sa cs. i remember 2 weeks after birth nakakagalaw na ako ng normal.. parang yung nangyari saken after kung manganak ok na ok parin ako, diko naramdaman ang manghina, kagaya ni rica ayuko ng amoy sa ospital,yung amoy ng alcohol mas nanghihina ako dun, saka yung mga turok ng karayom at gamot dun ako nanghihina. Pag malakas ka naman physically ,emotionally at walang complications you can choose kung anong type ng birth ang gusto mo.

  26. Rica since 90s ka pa TH so 3 decades nang wala namang nakikinig sa mga sinasabi mo. You always make it seem like you are smart pero wala namang substance. You are cliche in every way, nagka taon lang na you starred in a couple of popular teen shows three decades ago kaya may nakakarecognize pa rin sa yo kahit papano. Maybe try expressing yourself more succinctly in your posts and “blogs”, this just might work.

  27. Tama si 1:55 kasi parang ininvalidate nya yung pinagdaanan ng mga nanay who didn't go through the same thing as she did.

    Point well taken when she said na it's her choice kaya lang may issues ako sa iba nyang sinabi. Kung informed talaga sya, sana alam nya na ang doctors di naman magrereseta or magpapabigay ng gamot na hindi kailangan. At hindi rin naman mag-CS kung hindi kailangan. Akala ko ba ang OB nya is VBAC supporter? Bakit nya binabanggit bigla ang repeat CS? Sinabihan ba sya ng OB na pwede mag-VBAC at home? Madaming kulang sa sinabi nya tapos parang vinilify pa nya ang medical practice just to get her point across.

      Sa totoo lang, ang kinakaalarma naman ng karamihan ng commenters dito sa FP regarding this is bakit nag-VBAC sa bahay risk dahil may risk kasi na magrupture yung matres. Walang question sa home birth kasi pwede naman talaga yun.

Ganon lng yun, tsaka di nio rin naman standard ang life ni Rica so bat kayo na pressure sa mga sinabe niya? Learn to celebrate the joy of other people. Don't be so consumed sa kung anong hindi sumang-ayon sa standard niyo tapos halos kakainin nio si Rica sa rant dahil di nia na meet ang standard niyo? Di po sya perpekto at malamang kayo rin. Learn to give the benefit of the doubt and di puro what you see is what you get na and attack her na. Im sure she tried her best to explain, encourage and inspire others sa pinagdaanan nia thru her post. Spread love guys! Nakakapagod ang life ng laging rant, complain at mali lng ng iba ang nakikita. Im sure there's so much more sa pinagdaanan nia compared sa na ipost nia. Learn to celebrate the win/victory of others. The situation may not change but your hearts will. :-)

    4. Read 1:55 AM's comment. she's a public figure/influencer na ngshare in a public platform so natural na you will get reactions. Nkkatrigger talaga yung the WAY she shared her story especially if you are a mom who went through a different birth experience than her..

  30. Hindi ko naman na feel na know it all sha or felt less as a mom because she endured what I could not. Ang nasabi ko lang ay: ah okay yun pala. 25 hours, grabe mag epidural na ko nun girl!!! buti nakayanan mo, i salute your dedication girlll

    1. Ironic nman, before yung mahihirap no choice manganak sa balay lang kasi walang pera. Ngayon, mga mayaman ang afford mag home birth. Lol

  32. Can you opt not to have medication if you give birth in the hosp? Isa yan sa pinupunto nya.

    1. Of course! depende rin nman sa quality ng antenatal care mo yan at doctors/medical team who handles/who have handled your birth.Prior to giving birth,you should be able to discuss your birth plan with ur dr (options of pain relief, risks of intervention ) wag naman igeneralize na pag sa hospital ang choice mo e you would have to go through unnecessary intervention..

    2. yes. i gave birth twice sa ospital. no pain meds. they ask you if you want epidural or not.

    3. Why do want to suffer? That’s not sane. Have it fast and easy. Good for you and for the baby.

  33. Bilib pa rin ako sa kanya, hindi biro ang mag-labor, more so giving birth at home..pakahirap manganak ng walang anesthesia noh.

  34. itong mga artista, nothing wrong kung anong gawin nilang method sa buhay nila, kung gusto nila mag paka Amish halimbawa, e di go lang. Pero wag na nila i encourage ang mga ibang tao by posting or using their celebrity status to INFLUENCE.

  35. Prolonged labor could stress out the baby. I went through 18 hours of labor with zero meds pero my OB had the right mind to proceed with CS kasi naiistress na yung baby sa kakagalaw ng mga muscles sa sinapupunan. Congrats kay Rica for enduring the labor and all but the risks were too great and I feel like she threw caution in thr wind here just for some principle na kelangan nyang mag stick. I remember watching someone on YT who shared the same thing but ended up in the ER kasi hindi mailabas ang bata (the baby was too big) after a day of going into labor. Safety lagi ng baby ang isipin. Kahit may doula ka pa or hilot, duon ka sa specialist, yung taong taon ang iginugol sa pagaaral at experience paanong magpaanak, anong gamot at gamit ang gagamitin if things turn south. Kasi in the end, a doula will ask for the help of a doctor if it meant a life is on the line. Ganon kasimple yan. I would never dare if it meant I’d be endangering the baby, not in a million years.

  36. Meh, as a mother of two. I say go to the hospital with drugs to help you have it fast and heal fast. Problem solved. Huwag nang maraming arte.

  40. Don’t listen to her. It’s too risky and irresponsible. Why do you want to suffer for hours and hours and get stressed? Doesn’t make sense.
