There are many Filipino superstitions related to pregnancy, perhaps because it leads to a very special family milestone—the birth of another life into this world. And perhaps the most common superstition is that a pregnant woman should be very careful of aswang or any entity that could be after her child’s life, like in the two stories in this episode written by Reddit users zamakhtar and Archana120, respectively, published on the No Sleep subreddit. Grace and Mimai, hosts of the Filipino horror comedy podcast Wag Kang Lilingon, lend their voices in this episode.
