2024 GSK IMPACT Awards: Amma Birth Companions

Amma Birth Companions is a Glasgow-based charity working to improve pregnancy, birth and parenting experiences for individuals facing adversity, including women seeking asylum and refugees.

Judges’ comments

'Amma Birth Companions is a small but incredibly effective charity, giving voice and choice to marginalised women such as asylum seekers, at a crucial time in their lives. As the only charity in Scotland specialising in this work, its services are critical to prevent poor birth outcomes amongst some of Glasgow’s most vulnerable mothers and to give their babies the best possible start in life. In addition to its targeted support services for pregnant women and new mothers, Amma is also driving improvements in maternity care in Scotland, by using the lived experience of the women it supports to directly shape government policy.'
