Amma Birth Companions is a Glasgow charity that provides care information, and advocacy for birthing people facing barriers to support. We offer birth and postnatal companionship, along with antenatal education and peer support activities.
Our volunteers undergo 50+ hours of training to deliver specialist trauma informed, culturally competent care to birthing people throughout the perinatal period. Our companions work in teams to provide continuous practical and emotional support to expectant parents. Support is offered from the third trimester of pregnancy until a few weeks following birth.
We also offer peer support activities, antenatal education and advocacy.
Although we have a well-defined set of referral criteria, we are always happy to consider requests for support on a case-by-case basis. Please contact us to discuss.
