Delgado Clinic Launches Its Optimal Birth Outreach Program for healthy pregnancy promotion

by - January 21, 2018

For the past 70 years, there is one hospital that take maternal healthcare to a higher level. The Dr. Jesus Delgado Memorial Hospital, better known as the Delgado Clinic is a legacy left by its late founder, Dr. Jesus Delgado, whose vision and mission is being the pioneer advocate in championing mother care.

To date, did you know that Delgado Clinic has a record of more than a hundred thousand babies delivered?  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.

Delgado Clinic knows that every mother wishes for the best possible future for her child and they have been striving to be a steady partner in the wondrous journey of a pregnancy and in making sure that every child is given an optimal birth that leads to an optimal life.

With this as their mission, the Delgado Clinic recently launched its Optimal Birth Outcome (OBO) Program to help first-time moms and moms-to-be achieve a healthy pregnancy and reducing the possibility of premature delivery. 

During the launch, Dr. Rolando “Oyie” Balburias introduced the Optimal Birth Outcome (OBO) program, the free three-day workshop the program offers 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.

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.

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

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, management 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.

Inside the Delgado Clinic is the First Time Mom Unit (FTMU) which is empowered by Johnson & Johnson. This facility caters to first time moms in their medical and hospital needs. With the Delgado Clinic’s Optimal Birth Outcome (OBO) program, it 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.
