Context?
 
The rootwords are silong/silang which are two different things. Silong is shade, silang is either birth

Houses in the Philippines in the olden days would have 2 levels. Residents live on the second floor and the ground floor, which is called "silong", is used as storage and is also where domestic and domesticated animals are kept. Some houses in the provinces now might still have a silong. The word is now used to mean "shelter" (from the elements). "Sumilong" is "to take shelter". "Sinisilungan" is the structure used for shelter or where someone/something is taking shelter.
 
Nababasâ pa rin kami dito sa sinisilungan namin. = We're still getting wet here where we are taking shelter.
 
Ang malakíng punong iyon ang sinisilungan niya kapag matindí ang init ng araw. = That big tree there is where he/she takes shelter when the sun's heat is intense.
 
I would understand "sinisilangan" as the place for giving birth. Although "pinagsisilangan" is the word we normally use for that. In your Bumanaag post, I am not sure what its intended meaning is supposed to be because "sa langit na ating sinisilangan" translates to "in the sky/heavens where we are born". Does that make sense in the context of the entire material?

For my understanding place for giving birth is "sinilangan" which is done already that you were born, there is a word also "silangan" meaning east in english.

Context is Ngayong bumanag na sa langit na ating sinisilangan ang liwayway ng Kalayaan. I also asked about sinisilungan because from two different sources that word is used instead.

@Juantutri That makes sense, thank you. I get the feeling from the text the author is being deliberately "mabulaklak". The text is Ang bayan at mga gobyerno (pinuno)

I guess it should really be "sinisilungan" and "sinisilangan" could just be a typo. With "sinisilungan", the sky is metaphorically used as the "roof" that shelters us. And that does make sense.

Yes, there’s “silangan” for “east” and its adjective form is “silanganan” (eastern/of the east – also “silanganin” at times) as used in “Perlas ng Silanganan”. However, "sinisilangan” appears to be a verb and that is not possible to do with "silangan".
