Why AMANI Birth?
AMANI Birth is an Islamically founded childbirth education and doula program designed to educate women and support the decisions they make. At AMANI, we believe that Allah is in control of all things and has created women to conceive, carry, birth, and feed their babies.
With AMANI, families explore how the female body works during pregnancy and labor and practice coping techniques to manage labor and childbirth without pain medications, assuming there are no complications. We support families to make informed decisions and find care providers they trust. Knowledge is power and preparation is key. Our bottom line is to encourage families to get educated and prepared for their childbearing journey so that they can make informed decisions, especially if complications arise and medical intervention is offered. Knowing your options and having intelligent conversations with care providers helps mothers keep involved in her own birth experience. Because we know that not all births go textbook perfect, it is our goal to arm you with knowledge so that you can prepare for the birth you desire, yet feel confident that you've made the best decisions when interventions are required.

Mohammed is the Business Manager and Founder of AMANI Birth. He has dedicated himself to bringing the knowledge of childbirth preparation and evidence based practices to families all around the world. He is especially passionate about the father's role to support his wife throughout the childbearing year. He is a dedicated father and supports every family's right to make informed decisions about their pregnancy and childbirth and advocates for a gentle start in life for babies.
It’s important to note that AMANI is not intended to be a medical reference or to replace professional care during pregnancy, labor, or birth. Our teachers and doulas have extensive training in the theories of natural childbirth but are not clinically trained nor equipped to handle birth emergencies. Please understand that a doula is not a midwife and we recommend that all mothers shop for medical care providers they trust. The purpose is to explore the natural and normal functions of birth with trust in the design of the female body to carry out this function. Each woman should consider her personal situation and medical history and work closely with her birth team to achieve the safest and best birth experience for her and her baby. Allah (SWT) has given us bodies to birth and medical interventions for the rare complications that may arise. We pray that AMANI Birth materials and training will be a source of confidence and encouragement to only employ those interventions when truly necessary. We cannot stress enough the importance of good birth consumerism by women who are educated and empowered to keep control of their birth and make the best decisions for their particular situations. You have choices in birth; not making any choice is a choice that allows someone else full control over your experience and outcome. Tie your camel: get educated, choose wisely and cautiously. Your baby, your recovery, your family, and our worldwide community depend on it!
