Since Jennica Garcia became a mom, her life has never been the same.
Aside from being a wife and a mom to Baby Athena Mori, she's busy propagating a Facebook group called MoriMom Sisterhood, which now has 3,000 members.
According to Jennica, she created it for first-time moms who are struggling with breastfeeding.
“There is a way, you just need the right people beside you, someone who's open-minded, who will let you know of all your options.
“Kasi minsan, dahil hindi mo pa alam ang option na ito, because you see it as an evil thing, as an evil creation, ang ending tuloy nag-formula ka na lang which is sayang din naman,” she said in her interview with Sarap Diva last August 13.
Jennica clarified she has nothing against moms who feed their babies with formula milk.
"Nothing against formula. Kung wala talaga and if it's causing strain in the family, then, alam mo yun, so huwag na.
“Although I want to make it clear lang din na I am not just for extended breastfeeding.
“I'm for full-term breastfeeding, meaning okay lang sa akin kung between two to eight years old si Mori."
Her baby turned one last July 17.
HANDS-ON WIFE. When asked about her parenting style, it was her husband Alwyn Uytingco who answered the question.
“Si Jennica, adik iyan sa pagiging nanay,” he said laughing.
“Kapag mayroon siyang gustong matutunan, meron siyang gustong mabasang libro, hahanapin namin iyan 'tapos tambak nga yung libro sa bahay, e.
“Pero isa-isa niyang tinatapos iyan.
“Talagang makikita mo naman na ibang klase yung ituturo niya sa iyo na about how to take care of a child the very natural way.
“Kaya nakakatuwa, kasi ang dami mong puwedeng matutunan sa kanya.”
And even if she's a hands-on mom, Jennica is not remiss in her duties as a wife.
Alwyn exclaimed, "Grabe siya magmahal sa akin, grabe mag-alaga.
“Yung pagkain ko rin, maingat siya. Gusto niya healthy yung food namin sa bahay at the same time yung care niya para sa pets namin, nandiyan pa rin.
“I just want to honor her for being such a great mom and a loving wife.
“Thank you for your love, mahal, for your overflowing love for our family, and also for being compassionate sa ibang mga nanay.
“Ipagpatuloy mo yung advocacy mo sa pagtulong sa ibang mga nanay, kailangan nila yun.
"And I'm really proud of you. I love you.”
