Ten years of nannying and nursery school teaching stood Sam Morgan-Hutchings in good stead for supporting people as they become new parents. The essential skills remain the same; nurturing, caring, cheering people on and helping them to find their own way knowing that one day they will no longer be there to hold hands.
Amma Birth Companions is a registered Scottish charity that supports birthing people and parents in need of additional care, information, or advocacy throughout the perinatal period.
We offer pregnancy, birth, and postnatal companionship, along with antenatal education and peer support activities.
Our volunteers are trained to deliver specialist trauma informed, culturally competent care to birthing people at every stage of their parenting journey.
