Your support for Amma Birth Companions has the power to make an incredible impact here in Glasgow.
As a new charity, our work is only just beginning. But we know the need is there—and we're determined to make a difference.
With your support, we are positive that we can achieve our mission to improve pregnancy, birth and postnatal outcomes for vulnerable mothers.
“I had my first child which didn’t go as I had envisaged. I was induced twice then put in for an emergency C-section.
It was the most traumatic and painful episode of my life. I went through this all by myself. I was in so much pain that I thought I was going to die.
Looking back, I wish a birth companion would have been there for me and my daughter at that stage . It should have been a joyful experience but turned out to be a bitter one.
I wouldn’t want any other woman to go through what I went through—no matter who we are, where we’re from or what life has thrown in our path in the past."
