What it's like to give birth in Hawaii Hospitals

September 25, 2018

After multiple web searches, we couldn’t find much information on Hawaii’s hospitals and the experiences of giving birth in our local facilities. So we set out to create the first comprehensive guide to giving birth in Hawaii’s hospitals.

We spoke with 11 hospitals across the state and about 20 mamas to get information on policy and procedure as well as tips shared by mamas who have recently given birth in those hospitals. Whether you are located on Oahu or a neighbor island, we hope that this guide is useful to you and helps to ease some of the anxiety associated with the "unknown" of what it will be like at your local hospital.
