Birthing Stones

The Birthing Stones on Oahu is the place were chief were born and battles were fought. 
Royal pregnant women would come here to give birth from the 12th to 17th century. These rocks were known to ease the pain of labor. They would lay a mat down and expected gravity to do most of the work.

 People bring offerings here when they visit.
 I think I would choose this one.....

This is such a peaceful place, but I could NEVER imagine giving birth here!


  1. Wow this is amazing, what an incredible place to visit.

  2. Ahhh, I have heard of these! Very cool. It's crazy to think way back then women came there!

  3. Wow how amazing and such history couldn'romance convincing broth there but back in the day I am sure that's just how it was beautiful and peaceful place
