Maternity support for refugee, asylum seeking and displaced women

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.

Refer a Mama for a Solidarity Care Package

We are hearing reports of an increasing number of asylum-seekers being unable to source basic food and care items in light of an ongoing bulk-shopping on-part of the general public in inner city areas. We are putting together basic care packages of food & care items to deliver to women and their families. Please donate £10 if you would like to buy a package for an expectant or new mum.

If you, or anyone you know is experiencing vulnerabilities during this time and require nappies, formula and/or basic food items then please complete our form. We aim to deliver within 48 hours.

We've now launched our emergency crowd funding campaign

We are recruiting more Mother Companions during the time of Covid

Due to the current situation with Covid 19, demand for our support has skyrocketed. We are looking for reliable doulas, midwives, antenatal educators and other birth workers to provide virtual birth preparation and support to mothers-to-be.

“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
