Little did they know that the house where the mother lives is in the middle of a farm. It seems like the odds were all against the team – the ambulance do not have a way to go directly to the house, the 2 rescuers cannot carry her alone, and the baby is about to come out. But, through ‘bayanihan’, which is the very core of the ‘Lal-lo We Care Program’, all’s well that ends well.
The very kind neighbors of the family were the ones who carried her to the ambulance. They were about to bring her to the birthing center but upon getting the necessary information regarding her, the midwives decided to bring her to the nearest hospital instead. Mrs. Lea Baloran, at a very young age of 29 years old, had already experienced three (3) pregnancies (this one included). Her first born lived for only four (4) days. The second, she suffered miscarriage. Her pregnancy was at a high risk and her blood pressure was high at 150/90.
