In times of stress, I’ve often felt comforted by consuming information. Before I gave birth, I poured into my baby books. Before an exam in college, studied like crazy. 

 

But this stressful time feels different. With 24/7 news coming at me in every direction, I feel overwhelmed with information, trying to sort through what it all means for me and my family. 

 

We want to help our expecting mama community by giving you one less thing to sort through. We checked in with Hawaii’s 12 major hospitals to give you a comprehensive list of visiting hour changes to know about if you’re giving birth during this pandemic outbreak. The list of policies below are up to date as of March 26 and are subject to change, so please use the contact information below to get updates on any changes down the road.
