Rachel Curnel Struempf started this petition to Hawai’i Governor Ige Governor David Y. Ige

There are approximately 30  midwives in the state of Hawai'i. If SB1033 passes, more than half of the states midwives will no longer be able to practice midwifery.

By what authority do the drafters of this bill redefine the ancient word of midwife.

The statistical data proves midwives are practicing safely, and pose no risk of harm.

The testimony submitted on this bill proves that the consumers of home birth want ALL direct entry midwives to remain legal.

Those pushing for this bill believe in the medical model of birth, while those in opposition of the bill feel that childbirth is a normal biological process. 

Please support all direct entry midwives, preserve the right of choice!

Birth rights ARE human rights!
