A Very Amma Holiday – AmFam’s Holiday Celebration

This holiday season, our Peer Support Volunteers took Amma’s festive celebration into their own hands, and they created such a beautiful occasion for everyone. For many it was the first time they had planned a festive get together, and they poured such love and enthusiasm into every element of the party. From the decorations to entertainment to costumes to choosing the best snacks, every detail was considered. And the result was the warmest, most delightful day, with treats for all!

On November 8, a mural exploring Black motherhood was unveiled outside the Princess Royal Maternity Hospital in Glasgow. This mural is a public declaration of a commitment to racial equality and justice, and an invitation to continue to hold this hospital and others like it to account — to co-create a maternity system where everyone receives not just adequate care, but excellent care.
