“Bringing light to the earth, one baby step at a time!”

Lightfoot Birth and Midwifery Services offers holistic homebirth midwifery services to the east side of the Big Island of Hawaii. I am a community midwife based in Puna.

Homebirth offers a woman a great sense of empowerment in all aspects of her care. Surrounded by supportive people of her own choosing in a comfortable and familiar environment, a woman may feel better able to express her natural and instinctual responses to birth. A home birth is less disruptive to family routines and parents can choose how to involve their children in the birth experience. I believe that women are in charge of their bodies and their births, and that the birth journey flows most smoothly when mamas and papas are the main characters with a calm, experienced, vigilant midwife holding space.

If you are looking to find a homebirth midwife in Puna, Big Island Hawaii, I’d love to meet you! Please contact me with any questions you may have or to schedule an interview.
