Having a Baby?

Congratulations!! We’re happy to meet you prior to your delivery for a consultation.

  • You can schedule here for Dr. Honda and here for Dr. Waipa, or call our office at 808.600.2180 or text us on Spruce to set up a time to chat virtually.
  • The virtual consult will be an opportunity to ask any questions you have about the adventure ahead and get to know the provider, services we provide, and other office policies.
  • We’ll be full of great advice to help you prepare for your baby’s arrival, and we’ll be sure to give you any information you need to make the best decision for your family.

If you choose us to be your child’s pediatrician (yay!!), we’ll meet you and your baby AFTER you leave the hospital.

 

At Kapiolani, Queens, Castle, Kaiser, or Tripler, the experienced team of hospital-based pediatricians will visit you and your baby in the hospital and take care of your baby until you leave the hospital. They’ll be checking in on you and your baby, helping with breastfeeding, and preparing you to take your baby home in a few short days. If you decide for your son to have a circumcision, the hospital pediatrician will perform that procedure before you leave the hospital too. Before heading home with your baby, please call our office to schedule your first newborn visit, usually 2 days after hospital discharge, so we can make sure that your first few nights at home went smoothly.

 

Note: We don’t generally require a prenatal visit before accepting a newborn as a patient, but we’ll only accept babies born via homebirth whose parents contact us and meet with us virtually AND call our office within 24 hrs of delivery to schedule the first visit with a pediatrician. If you have any questions about our policies, please call or text us.

Call your insurance company to verify that your doctor is listed as a credentialed provider, and request to change your child’s PCP to your new doctor, if necessary. We are affiliated with Hawaii Health Partners if they ask for a designated Health Center. See our list of contracted insurance plans; if your plan is not on the list, please contact us, and we’re happy to see you out-of-network or on a cash-pay basis.
