About us

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.
