Joining together with the Domestic Harmony Awareness Initiative and sponsored in part

by a grant from the East Hawaii Local Area Consortium (working together to improve

health outcomes and advance the health of all women with special outreach to Native

Hawaiians, Pacific Islanders, Hispanics, Filipinos and teens), along with other local

Pahoa businesses, the celebration will include a ‘Short & Sweet Spa’ for a bit of

pampering, clothing exchange (bring your ladies clothes only please to share and swap),

‘Dress up and photo op’ for pictures in costume or fun play clothes, arts corner for keiki

to keep them engaged while moms make candy roses and other art activities.

There will be information and people on hand from the East Hawaii LAC on child and

maternal healthcare and the Domestic Harmony Awareness Initiative about the

relationship between Gentle Birth and Domestic Harmony.

Live music will be provided by Earl and Bryan and others.

Mainstreet Pahoa Board President Madie Green says ‘When we encourage the

involvement of the community through efforts such as this it sends the message to our

moms that you matter, and we care. We recognize that the amount of support and help

we give contributes to their and their children’s well being. Providing extra care and

support for women in our community who are expecting children as well single mothers

in general makes for better outcomes for all.

The Mayor’s proclamation for ‘May Gentle Birth Month and Mother’s Day Gentle Birth

Day’ will be read as we celebrate birth and mothers.
