My sister gave birth last March to twins. It was her first pregnancy which means that she had to learn all the things that came with it, twice (changing diapers, breastfeeding, etc.). She said that from the moment her doctor confirmed she was pregnant, she felt as if she was seeing, hearing, tasting, and feeling everything around her for the first time. Poor girl.
After she gave birth and had somehow adjusted to the life of being a brand new mom, she realized she needed to accomplish one more important thing: she needs to register her babies’ births!
Since she hardly had time to sit and browse through the internet, I volunteered to help her find out how she can have her babies registered at the Local Civil Registry (LCR).
It was then that I came across www.citizenservices.com.ph, an informative website that has the complete (and simplified!) list of things you need to prepare and do when registering your newborn at the LCR. The information I needed I found under their Mommy Helpline link and if you are first-time Mom, you might want to bookmark this page because they have ALL the things you need to know about preparing your children’s important documents and IDs (like getting his first passport!). So I simply copy-pasted the instructions and sent it to my sister who was only too glad to receive any kind of help (poor thing!). Well, in a couple of days after receiving my message, her twins’ birth papers have been registered by my brother-in-law. Yay!
