Below you will find a suggestions for finding a hospital-based obstetrical care provider, followed by a list of group practices and obstetricians who deliver babies at Maui Memorial Medical Center. At the very bottom of the page is a photojournal of a beautiful and uplifting hospital birth. The birth is not at MMMC, but is much like what I have witnessed there as a doula.

Don't get confused by all those letters! There is a list of the acronyms and their definitions towards the bottom of the page.

Community Clinic of Maui, Maui Medical Group, and The Women’s Health Center of Maui all cross-cover hospital call for each other.

Kaiser Permanente doctors do not cross-cover hospital call with other groups or individuals.

Finding and Interviewing OB Care Providers

I recommend you interview several OBs and see whom you vibe with. Obviously you may be limited by your insurance, but be as proactive as possible. The ability to honestly express yourself and concerns to your OB or any health care professional is central to being able to make an informed decision concerning your care. Make sure that you choose an OB who you trust will respect your opinions and input and listen to your questions, concerns, and ideas. The following are some suggestions for finding the best doctor/group for you.
