In part 2 of our home birth series, we dig in to the details of what to do to really get ready to have your baby at home.
Read on as, Le'a Minton, Board President of Midwives Alliance of Hawaii, walks us through how to prepare for your home birth.
The first step in planning for a home birth is often to choose a midwife. But knowing how to choose the right midwife for you may seem a bit daunting. So to help, we put together this guide along with our friends at Breastfeeding Hawaii.
Below, we'll walk you through what to know, questions to ask, and things to be aware of as you prepare to welcome your little in to the world.
The holiday countdown is officially underway, along with the stress of Christmas shopping to hurriedly cross names off our list. But—fear not, busy mamas! We’ve rounded up some of our favorite ideas for all your gifting needs. Unwrap our best ideas for all the lovely ladies and babies in your life this holiday season!
Oh the hospital bag. What to pack? What not to pack? How soon to pack?No matter what side of the spectrum you’re on, we’ve got you covered thanks to our wonderful community of Coco Moon mamas. We gathered their insights and put together a list of essentials and bonus items that you can refer to as you pack that handy dandy hospital bag.
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.
A list of carefully curated, Hawaii-inspired gift ideas to pamper you magnificent mamas (or refer your partner to so they can help pamper you!) and support the local community!
