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, more popularly known as the Delgado Clinic, has been championing mother care for 70 years with a record 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 the mothers do to make sure their child not only lives, but flourished.

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 congenital defect, premature birth, new-born infections, and other chronic complication 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 and 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.

  • Nutrition and Wellness

Delegado 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 and 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 child disease.

  • 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, physiologically and emotionally important. A good sleep pattern plays an important role in the preparations for birth, and protects the baby from the physiological stresses and stains of pregnancy.

Dr. Rolando “Oyle” Balburias, President and General Manager of Delgado Clinic once started that, “We at Delgado Clinic would like to continue the legacy of our late founder, Dr. Jesus Delgado, his VISIONS and MISSIONS, and on being the pioneer advocate of CHAMPION OF MOTHER CARE for the past 70 years.”
