She could not afford to buy one as they barely have enough food for them.

They live in a nipa hut with husband larry working on odd jobs available.

Ruby said that she did not find anything abnormal in her womb when she was still pregnant with child.

She got the shock of her life when she saw the figure of her fourth child.

The baby whose gender remains unclear died after 30 minutes.

“I was shock but I accept it,” Urpiano said.

The child is about 12 inches and one kilo in length and weight respectively.

Her hilot (traditional midwife), Carmen Raquepo, said that when she was checking the womb of Urpiano, she found it unusual because of the oneness in the movement in one area presumably the feet.

Raquepo said that it was her first time to see such child figure in her more than two decades of working as traditional midwife.
