Maternity Action for Migrants and Asylum Seekers

We believe that every mother has the right to give birth safely, make informed choices and receive the support she needs for a positive birth and early parenting experience.

Project MAMA supports women who are refugees, seeking asylum or have irregular immigration status throughout the maternity process. We link women with specialist birth companions and a peer network for support throughout pregnancy, childbirth and in early parenting.

“Project MAMA is a unique and much needed service in Bristol. We are excited that our clients would be fortunate enough to access this tailored support during their pregnancy and labour. Our clients have often told us about their experiences of having babies alone, confused and scared. This project will enable them to have more pleasant experiences and the labour and childbirth that every women deserves.”

Layla Ismail, Development ManagerRefugee Women of Bristol
