Baby Radcliffe Gabrielle Padida arrived on April 26, 2019. He was only 6 months old(26 weeks and 3 days) and only weighs 900 grams.
His mother, Apple, a public school teacher from Malabon, Philippines was diagnosed with "Placenta previa" on the early days of gestation and hoped that it will be treated through total bed rest. On the 5th month, the placenta previa stayed and declared a "placenta previa totalis" since it is still totally covering the OS.
Last 22nd of April, 2019, Apple suffered from Amniotic Fluid Embolism making and the baby's amniotic fluid index reached below minimum (0.8) that's why on the 23rd of april she was rushed into the nearest hopital (Fatima University Medical Center) to monitor the condition. On the 26th, the baby's heartbeat slightly slowed down and his mother was already on a labor which was resulted to an early delivery through caesarian section.
The baby's mother is now recovering but baby Radcliffe needs to be incubated for at least 3 months and will need to monitor for any possible infections. Also he needs to be ventilated as his lungs are still premature. Right now he needs to be exposed under blue light to treat his jaundice due to his premature kindey.
We are asking for your financial support for our little baby. Your help will be gratly appreciated. God bless us all. Thank you so much from the bottom of my heart!
