Our Programs & Services

“Hawaii Cribs for Kids,” a safe sleep education course, for low-income, high-risk pregnant women and their families. This program provides education on the risk factors, how to create a safe sleep environment, and tracks the baby’s health throughout its first year of life.

Māna ‘ai Food Distribution Program

Our food distribution program, Māna ‘ai, focuses on the importance of maintaining a healthy diet postpartum. Amidst the global pandemic, food insecurity further affects this population with the immediate stay at home orders and reduction of many jobs. New moms are a particularly vulnerable population and Māna ‘ai assists in ensuring that low-income women in underserved communities continue to have reliable access to local nutritional food.

The BABY & ME – Tobacco Free Program™ is an evidence-based, smoking cessation program created to reduce the burden of tobacco on the pregnant and postpartum population. Our program is successful in helping women quit smoking and stay quit, resulting in improved birth outcomes and long-term positive outcomes for women, children, and their families.

Mana Mama is a community-based midwifery model of care reaching people of Hawaii with a holistic approach during pregnancy and the baby’s first year and beyond.  Clinical services are provided by our Hawaii State Licensed midwives and nurse practitioner. Mana Mama has lactation consultants on staff to help assist with any breastfeeding concerns you may have. In addition to clinical services, participants receive comprehensive phone support and referrals to resources and information, as well as referrals to HMHB’s other programs.
