Dr. Jesus Delgado Memorial Hospital (Delgado Clinic) launches Optimal Birth Outcome (OBO) Program to help first-time moms and moms-to-be achieve a healthy pregnancy. Dr. Jesus Delgado Memorial Hospital knows that every mother wishes for the best possible future for her child. This drives the clinic to strive to be a steady partner in the wondrous journey of pregnancy and in making sure that every child is given an optimal birth that leads to an optimal life.

Dr. Rolando “Oyie” Balburias, President and General Manager of Delgado Clinic

Expecting? Do you want to have an uncomplicated and normal delivery? Got invited last January 20, 2018, Saturday, at the Delgado Clinic for the official launching of the Optimal Birth Outcome Program and learned how to reduce the possibility of premature delivery. I myself got really interested in Dr. Rolando “Oyie” Balburias talk most especially for mothers and mom-to-be. I had attached some videos of the event that will really interest women and or couples to hear about.

Dr. Jesus Delgado Memorial Hospital, more popularly known as the Delgado Clinic, has been championing mother care for 70 years with a record of more than a hundred thousand babies being delivered to date. From normal births to high-risk complications, the Delgado Clinic has taken an extra measure of love and personalized care as all mothers do to make sure their child not only lives but flourishes.

True to its legacy, the Delgado Clinic introduces the Optimal Birth Outcome (OBO) program, a free three-day workshop that serves as the ultimate care, support and education system for moms-to-be designed to minimize or even eliminate the congenital defect, premature birth, new-born infections, and other chronic complications for both mothers and children.

Tour around inside of Delgado Clinic

An Optimal Birth Outcome (OBO) is achieved when there is zero or reduced complications. The OBO program does this by providing added-value services in support of the foundational needs of every individual mother. No matter what level of physical or emotional health they mother comes in with, the goal of the program is to provide the best possible childbearing outcome for each mother and child.

A must watch short film

The OBO program focuses on five aspects of health that are scientifically proven to have wide-ranging effects for every pregnancy.

  • Nutrition and Wellness- Delgado Clinic has localized the latest scientific nutrition information to support reduced negative birth outcomes, achieve optimum growth and development of the baby and provide a stable environment from which both mother and child may spring from. 
  • Biotransformation & Elimination of Toxicants- The advent of urbanization has surrounded mothers with multiple toxic elements that are often missed and unassessed. Pulling from the latest scientific evidence the OBO program equips mothers with the practical knowledge of avoiding and substituting today’s most commonly used harmful chemicals.
  • Stress Management- Stress during pregnancy affects a child’s developing brain, metabolic system and body. Through the OBO stress, mangament workshop mothers are taught the multiple ways of managing stress and its link to long-term maternal and childhood diseases.
  • Exercise in Pregnancy - Physical exercise is an activity that improves or maintains physical fitness and overall health and wellness. Exercise during pregnancy is important and can help with some common discomforts of pregnancy and support the body for labor, delivery, and life after delivery.
  • Sleep Management- Establishing good sleep patterns during pregnancy is physically, psychologically and emotionally important. A good sleep pattern plays an important role in the preparation for birth and protects the baby from the psychological stresses and strains of pregnancy.

Empowered by Johnson & Johnson, the First Time Mom Unit (FTMU) facility that caters to first time moms in their medical and hospital needs, and the Delgado Clinic’s Optimal Birth Outcome (OBO) program aims to deliver enriching workshops for the mother not only to give birth to a healthy baby, but also to be holistically healthy before, during, and after the pregnancy.

A Benefit Concert of Coke Studio to Help Bring Music Back to Marawi

“This is our way of showing support and solidarity with the Filipino people – to be able to contribute in the rebuilding process. Music is one of the things that threads through every person, regardless of age, religion, culture, and socio-economic bracket. We are committed to help the communities that we serve, especially in times like these that we have to come together to rebuild not just the physical structures, but most importantly, the lives of the people.” ~Stephan Czypionka, Marketing Director of Coca-Cola Philippines
With my co-bloggers:
Joseph Aguilus of
Ann Ville Purificacion of

I am one of the people who joined last December 9, 2017, for the Coke Studio Live Benefit Concert at the SM Mall of Asia Concert Grounds. And enjoyed some of my favorite Coke Studio artists live on stage. 

The youth donate their empty bottles to help fund the construction of a Little Red Schoolhouse for Marawi children

Plus I showed support by bringing empty Coca-Cola PET bottles for a recycling drive that would help contribute to the construction of a Little Red Schoolhouse for Marawi kids. 
“We are committed in helping rebuild Marawi and the communities impacted by this conflict. In partnership with relevant government agencies, we in the private sector will be bringing our sustainability initiatives to the area. Our 5by20 entrepreneurship programs will be provided for the spouses of soldiers deployed in Marawi, while water systems will also be installed in the communities. We’ll also build a Little Red Schoolhouse.” ~Jonah de Lumen-Pernia, Public Affairs and Communications Director of Coca-Cola Philippines

Coca-Cola Philippines brought thousands of teens together to help rebuild Marawi through a unique benefit concert that celebrated the Filipinos’ love for music as it empowered the youth to move as one creative force for a great endeavor. Coca-Cola Philippines committed to building a Little Red Schoolhouse as part of the Philippine Disaster Resilience Foundation’s (PDRF) United4Marawi campaign.

Bringing music back to Marawi
It was a night filled with music and hope shared their voices and talents for Marawi. Their amazing performances included renditions of Christmas favorites as well as their groundbreaking collaborations with Coke Studio artists including:

Other artists from different universities were also present to entertain the crowd in the pocket stage at the Tunebayan area.
All the Coke Studio artists unite to sing a moving rendition of “Oh Come, All Ye Faithful” for the people of Marawi

Aside from the upbeat performances, there were also several emotional moments. Coke Studio artists Noel Cabangon and Curtismith led the audience in observing a few minutes of silence as they offered a prayer for the victims of Marawi. Afterwards, they both sang the empowering lyrics of their collaboration “Payong Kaibigan”. There was also a special group performance where the Coke Studio artists all sang “Oh Come, All Ye Faithful” to inspire unity in supporting the Maranaos especially this Christmas season.
Thousands of people come to show their support for the worthy cause at the Coke Studio benefit concert at the Mall of Asia Concert Grounds

During the event, attendees enjoyed exciting activities like singing along to their favorite tunes at the Coke Studio Karaoke and receiving personalized Coke bottles with their names on the labels at the Coke Jukebox. There was even a Christmas food fair and bazaar where guests feasted on good food, best paired with a refreshing drink.

Overall, it was a great night worthy of its even greater advocacy which showed just how music truly unites and inspires Filipinos to come together.
