Review for Roots of Health, Puerto Princesa, Palawan, , Philippines
My name is Beverly and I am currently working as a Police Officer in Puerto Princesa City, Palawan. I have one daughter and my husband is also working as a Police Officer in different municipality of Palawan. I first heard Roots of Health from a friend who had prenatal check up with them and she informed me that family planning services are free at roots of health clinic. I find it hard to locate the exact building of the clinic but luckily I found it.
It was my first time to encounter such thorough counseling before getting any family planning method. I was a pill user before but through their counseling I realized that I was taking the birth control pills the wrong way. I was just lucky of not getting pregnant. The way they explained the advantages and disadvantages of different methods is not the same with barangay health centers. They even taught me what to do in case of missed pills.
I wasn't able to get the contraceptive that I want during my visit because of the assessment of the nurse but she recommended to temporarily use condom and then return three weeks after my last sexual contact for pregnancy test. I took their advice because it was clearly explained to me. Hopefully on my next visit the PT will be negative so I can get my depo shot.
I would highly recommend roots of health to my friends and I am planning to meet up with my colleague to talk about the possible invitation to roots of health as resource speaker on family planning and reproductive health. More power and bless them all.
