Amma Birth Companions is a Scottish charity that supports parents in Glasgow who might otherwise give birth alone. We provide care, information, and advocacy to ensure parents experiencing multiple disadvantages can give birth and parent safely and with dignity.
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.
