Bagong Birthing Center binuksan sa Mlang

MLANG, North Cotabato (Feb. 16) – Pinangunahan ni Mayor Joselito F. Piñol ang pagbubukas ng bagong birthing center sa Barangay Poblacion B nitong Biyernes ng umaga.

Sumaksi sa pagpapasinaya ang mga matataas na opisyal ng Municipal Health Office sa pangunguna ni Dr. Glecerio Sotea, MD at mga kawani ng iba’t ibang pribado at pampublikong tanggapan sa bayan.

Sa kanyang pananalita, pinuri ni Mayor Piñol ang pagpupursige ni Dr. Sotea upang magkaroon ng maayos at magandang birthing center sa mismong sentro ng bayan. At sa mismong pagpapasinaya ng nasabing gusali, isang malusong na batang lalake ang unang isinilang dito.

Ipinagyabang naman ni Dr. Sotea na sa bayan ng Mlang ay mayroon ng 20 birthing centers sa iba’t ibang barangays na nakakatulong upang hikayatin ang mga buntis na huwag nang manganak sa kanilang tahanan.

Sa katunayan ayon kay Sotea, mula sa 55% na home deliveries, bumaba na lamang ito sa 6% kaya naitala ng zero maternal deaths ang bayan ng Mlang.

“We’re still doing everything with the support of our beloved Mayor Piñol to make the best for Mlangeños,” ani Sotes.

Ayon naman kay Mayor Piñol, tuloy ang kanyang suporta sa health advocacies para mapanatiling malusong at maging kaaya-kaayang mamuhay ang kanyang mga mamamayan kahit pa sa pinakamalayong barangay ng Mlang.


No maternal death in Mlang

 

MLANG, North Cotabato(Feb 18)- For five consecutive years, this municipality has had zero maternal deaths since it established bithing centers, even in far-flung villages. Twenty of the 37 villages have their own birthing stations catering to the needs of pregnant women, according to Dr. Glecerio Sotea, Municipal Health Officer. “With the strong campaign of the rural health unit and with the help of the village midwives, we are hoping to eliminate home deliveries soon,” Sotea said. The establishment of the birthing centers has brought down home deliveries from 55 percent to only 6 percent he said.

Home deliveries are still being done in indigenous communities, a target sector of the municipal information campaign on the dangers of giving birth at home, Sotea said. Each of the 37 villages has its own midwife and health worders who attend to pregnant mothers. In villages without birthing stations yet, the patients are referred to the nearest health centers.
