: We will be heading there next summer. I was wondering what the "scene" is on Oahu as far the birth community is concerned, crunchy moms, etc...

Also, how are the midwives? I will need a preceptor while I am there, any recommendations?

Is living in HI really as great as everyone says it is?

Thanks girls!

Its wonderful!!!!I have met more ladies who have had home births and UCs. No one blinks if you are nursing in public and children are really very much enjoyed here.

great midwives and quite a few who don't have apprentices.

PM me - I'll invite you to our local board to prepare you for moving here

Hi KailuaMamatoMaya,

My husband's job will likely be moving us to Kauai after the first of the year. I'm trying to make some connections with local folks with respect to midwifery/homebirth. I am just finishing up my training under direct-entry midwives and am hoping to meet other like-minded folks out there.

Could you also invite me to your local board? My email is [email protected].

Chloe :-)
