Here you will find suggestions for finding and interviewing midwives. Following that is the list of midwives willing—and trained—to catch your baby at home!

At this time there are no midwives on Maui who deliver babies in the hospital. However, there are several midwives who would be happy to accompany you to the hospital and provide doula-type emotional and physical support.

Don't miss the presentation of a beautiful homebirth with a midwife at the very bottom of this page. And don't get confused by all those letters! There is a list of the acronyms and their definitions towards the bottom of the page.

Finding and Interviewing Midwives

I recommend you interview several midwives and see whom you vibe with, because you will likely be paying for your midwife on your own dime. You will want to make sure they offer the services, attitude, and philosophy you agree with. The ability to honestly express yourself and concerns to your midwife, or any health care professional, is central to being able to make an informed decision concerning your care. Make sure that you choose a midwife who you trust will respect your opinions, values, and listen. The following are some suggestions for finding the best midwife for you.
