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.
On March 8, 2022, Amma Birth Companions is taking part in the Big Give ‘Women and Girls Match Fund’ campaign, with an ambitious target to raise £20,000 in just one week. All funds raised will go towards the creation of the Amma Access Fund: a new grant designed to make training in birth work more accessible to women from underrepresented groups.
In Scotland we have a proud history of protest, of raising our voices against the injustices that blight our society and speaking truth to power.
We – the undersigned – are proud to work in a country that values compassion and fairness. Though across our communities and sectors we work to achieve different things, today we are united in our opposition to the UK Government’s Nationality and Borders Bill.
