7 Sep – Regine Tolentino recently admitted that being pregnant and subsequently giving birth to her third daughter, Rosie, was one of the most stressful times of her life, as it happened during the pandemic.
As reported on Push, the actress who gave birth to her baby girl back in March this year, stated that she had never been so scared in her life realising that she and her partner Dondi Narciso were taking risks going to and fro the hospital knowing that they could contract the coronavirus during one of their visits.
"It wasn't us, the medical frontliners were also worried. It was a struggle because we were all experiencing the whole thing together... and everybody wasn't really sure how to handle it properly with everything. But we just made sure that we were very careful and that we were together all the time and just being overly careful by having the proper PPEs, the face masks and just not touching things and staying away and staying home as much as possible," she said.
Even during labour, Tolentino stated that she was in fear as she couldn't stop thinking of all the probabilities of what could happen to her or to her child.
"We just had to deal with it. We adjusted and prayed a lot and overcame the struggles. A lot of tears along the way but it was something that made our relationship stronger as a family," she said.
Nonetheless, Tolentino admitted that the birth of baby Rose was still amazing to her as she was able to experience being a mother of a newborn again.
