I am wanting to find this state's laws concerning homebirth & getting a BC afterwards. I have yet to have luck finding Hawai'i's laws in general. Going to the state's homepage I get directed I think to the legislature's home page, but so far I have only been able to access pending legislation. Does anyone know of an alternate source?

To my knowledge it HB is alegal in HI. There are mamas here who have had homebirths here. Check the HI tribe board. You can also probably get some info if you start working the Bradley teacher/LLL circuit.

Homebirth is alegal in HI.

That said there are midwives hwo practice there and have not had any issues getting BC's for their patients. The HI doula network on Oahu should be able to point you to a few midwives for sure.

I had a UC in HI and had no issues getting a BC, it was actually very easy. Good luck

I live in HI. Mw who are on a registry (that the mws do) can fill out bc info themselves for their clients. This has been going on for the past 3+ years. Mws are alegal here, but the dept of health wanted to get stats on the hb babes. Supposedly they wanted to make it harder for those who go other routes to get bcs, but I haven't heard that this is the case.
Last time I had to get one, I had to go to the dept of health after taking my son to a doc (to verify his existence?). I don't think you'd have a problem getting one after an UC since not all of the mw are on that registry and their clients get bc just fine.

I live on Oahu, and my last birth was with a lay-midwife. All I had to do was take a paper signed by her as a witness and they had no problems with getting me a birth certificate.
