Advocacy

Amma Birth Companions is a Glasgow charity that was established in 2019.

We provide care information, and advocacy for women and birthing people who face pregnancy, birth and parenthood alone or against significant barriers. We offer pregnancy, birth and postnatal companionship, along with antenatal education and peer support activities.

Our clients include refugee and asylum-seeking women, survivors of human trafficking, and other individuals experiencing multiple disadvantages.

We aim to create a supportive environment where pregnant people and new parents feel seen, informed, and nurtured in all aspects of their birth and early parenting experiences.
