They have 3 children studying one in high school and two in elementary near them. The oldest is studying college. Mr. and Mrs. G. originated from Bicol but tagalog is the primary dialect spoken of the family since they live in Brgy. Dela Paz. And the head of the family was the only one whos working for the family as a shoe cleaner but they was only sustented. Mrs. A was 8 months pregnant,AOG(8 months and 21 days) and expected to deliver on September 29,2009. Their house is situated near olalia road and the schools are 4 meters from the house. Mrs. G. were the one who decides for their family because the father was just visiting them. Even though there have misunderstanding on financial matters they make an effort on resolving disputes.

B. Socio-economic and cultural characteristics Regarding with their socio-economic aspect, the family salary as a shoe cleaner approximately 1000 monthly. The sum of their income will be divided for their expenses such as 1.food, 2. Education, 3. Utilities (rent for their house which is 700 pesos), 4. health and others. The one who makes decision with their money is their mother.

They have 3 children studying one in high school and two in elementary near them. The oldest is studying college. The place where they live is very crowded. The community is full of children maybe 6 to 8 years of age.

C. Home and Environment Under environmental factors, their house is a room which measures 4 square meters. that is inadequate space for five of them and it is not well ventilated because their home has only one window for the air to come in. As I assess the pregnant mother, I saw that the place is not well organized and the family has no cabinets for food storage. They cook food with charcoal. The water they drink is tap water. Their toilet is a community toilet, it is de-buhos and in front of the public is full of stagnant water. They make use of plastics or sacks for their trash,

and according to them it is collected by a track every wednesday. The drainage is close and the water flows freely. They have no garden and stray pets. There kitchen and sala are one who serves also as gate for visitors. The family has many unnecessary types of equipment within their house, it occupies big space, and with that set-up the space for the family members is limited. Adequate amounts of air were able to pass through cause of scattered equipments.

D. Health status of each family member As for the Past illness of the family include tonsillitis, diarrhea, cough and colds.They have enough time of sleep and eat three times a day. They primarily eat rice, vegetables, fish, meat, and fruits. And sometimes their oldest daughter skips breakfast at the morning and goes to school without eating anything. The drink alcoholic drinks occasionally and no family members smoke. As I assess the pregnant mother. The pregnant mother is not taking any screening and laboratory exams. They find it hard to find a good sleep because of inadequate space. E. Values and Practices on health maintenance The children of Mrs. G. are sleeping from 8:00p.m or 9:00p.m until 10:00 a.m. They find it hard to find a good sleep because of inadequate space. The family has complete set of meals from breakfast, lunch and dinner. Family spends time of leisure together and children is fond of playing at the plaza and sidewalks.
