Notice to all expectant mothers (and the fathers, as well): The municipalities of Dueńas and Estancia, Iloilo have officially prohibited, and banned, home deliveries – of babies.

As such, public notice goes out too, to all medical health practitioners and traditional birth attendants. With town Ordinances passed, it is now illegal to aid a pregnant woman due to give birth in the confines of the family home. The legal way to do it, or at least in Dueńas and Estancia, is only with the town’s authorized birthing clinics, health centers or hospital.
