Birth center policies
The following MMMC policies and state laws are designed to help ensure your family's safety and comfort:
Guests during labor. Patients are able to have one well designated support person during their stay with the laboring mom and that support person is screened for symptoms and fevers each day and provided a mask upon entry. No other visitors or children are able to visit at this time.
Visiting hours. Your designated support person is free to visit you and your baby from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Your support person can be in your room and available to you 24 hours a day.
Car seats. Hawaii state law requires that the vehicle you're transporting baby home in have a federally approved car seat installed. We recommend that you practice installing the car seat prior to discharge day to ensure that your baby can be transported home safely.
Checking in for your delivery
If you arrive at MMMC to give birth between 5:30 a.m. and 8:30 p.m., you can enter through the main hospital entrance and check in at the admitting desks.
If you arrive after 8:30 p.m. or before 5:30 a.m., check in at the Emergency Department, and they will escort you directly to the Obstetrics Department.
We highly recommend preregistering before your due date so the check-in process on delivery day is as smooth and stress-free as possible.
Birth certificates and social security numbers
Before you leave the hospital you can complete a birth certificate and request a Social Security number for your baby at the same time. For questions regarding your newborns paperwork, please call 808.242.2352.
