It is said that behind every successful man is a woman and behind every successful child is a great mother. This is obviously true on how former actress Jennica Garcia-Uytingco turned out to become a good role model for other women.
In a recent interview with PEP, Jennica’s mother, Jean Garcia expressed how extremely proud she is to her daughter. We can recall that on June 25, Jennica gave birth to her second daughter, Alessi via water birth. Amidst its possible risks, Jennica took the courage to try the natural way of giving birth. And true enough, she managed to do it.
According to Jean, she didn’t accompany Jennica when she gave birth at a kiddie pool.
“Ang asawa lang niya at midwife saka yung magka-catch ng bata ang nandun. Ayaw niya nandun ako kasi mati-tense lang daw siya. Saka walang doktor, ha!”
Moreover, the veteran actress revealed that Jennica’s midwife actually wasn’t around when she gave birth. In fact, it was only her and her husband Alwyn Uytingco who really took the courage to take out of the child.
“Heto ka pa, may kasama naman, pero yung midwife, late dumating. Nakapanganak na nung dumating yung midwife. Si Alwyn yung kumuha nung bata sa loob ng swimming pool.”
