Amma Birth Companions is a registered Scottish charity that provides trained, nurturing birth companions to women in Glasgow who are facing pregnancy and birth alone—separated from friends and family.
We believe that every mother should have access to the tools and information needed to make informed choices about birth. Working with pregnant women facing significant adversity, we provide support, advocacy and resources to help reduce fear, overcome barriers, ensure women’s voices are heard and mitigate health inequalities.
We also offer post-natal support and group activities that provide opportunities for friendships and integration—ultimately helping to give babies a better start in life.
Our mission is to improve birth, pregnancy and postnatal outcomes for vulnerable mothers in Glasgow.
