MAH Response to MauiMama
Jan 5, 2018
The Midwives Alliance of Hawaii (MAH) thanks Kiana Rowley, who is a part of the birth community on Maui, for her article about upcoming legislation to regulate the profession of midwifery here in Hawaii. We want to clarify that Kiana is not speaking for or representing MAH in this article, and we'd like to provide the following clarifications:
1) MAH does not write or introduce bills or legislation. We make recommendations to legislators who then write bills. However, once the recommendations leave our hands, we do not have control over how the bill is written or what it says.
2) MAH has had three meetings with stakeholders, including the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology (ACOG), to reach consensus surrounding the recommendations we will provide to legislators. In this way, we hope to build community around our legislative efforts and reduce obstacles when a bill is introduced.
