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.
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.
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.
