Aloha! I wanted to share with you a major issue that has just come up in Hawaii. Senate bill #2569 has been introduced which will essentially criminalize all home birth midwives in the state by forcing them to undergo total regulation by local hospitals and obstetricians (who happen to be vehemently anti-home birth). It is a frightening development in our state and we are scrambling right now to have the bill killed as soon as possible. A petition has been started and we could use any and all assistance and awareness for this issue that we can get. Mahalo!
And here is a link to the original bill:
