My sister was born at home in Manoa Valley and my dad helped mom with her birth.  Dad went to Abe Piianaea and asked for a home in Waimanalo.  Our address was 41-646 Kalanianaoly Hwy.  It was an exciting growing up in the place because this is where my father too grew up.  The ocean was so familiar to my dad and we in turn learned the changes of the ocean, mountains, and all the living things surrounding the area. 

 

My dad went to Waimanalo Elementary School, his children, grandchildren and presently his great grandchildren are attending Waimanalo Elementary.  His mother Luukia Ananu was highly respected and the elder women treated her with moral and just deeds.  Grandma was sacred to the women of Koolaupoko.  She tied the diverse threads in sacredness, for this she was given the respect that one would give to any high minded person in today's modernity. 

 

My little brother was born at home in Lanikila and this birth was my most memorable moment.  I held my brother in my arms just moment after his birth.  It is so very different today that siblings do not have the bonding at birth.  I can still remember the ironing board that was used.

 

I was just three when my brother Marshall was born in my grandmothers’ bedroom at Kapahulu. This is the same place that I was born.  My sister Jemima is my step sister, and she was so looked up to while we were growing up.   My sister was our little mom; today she has many children and grandchildren that are living a few houses away from me. 

 

These birthing stories was one of the things dad spoke about and I was a bit taken that he wanted to share these memorable moments with his great grandchildren.  Home birthing should be given that same care in our family practice these experiences are binding and are lasting in the keenous of our deep and spiritual memories.
