AMANI Birth Certified Childbirth Educator & Doula, Hafsa Qureshey, explores the very relevant topic of birth consumerism: What does good birth consumerism mean? Good birth consumerism is 'shopping' for the right care provider; OBGYN or birth attendant, and selecting the right place to give birth, because both these things - who you have with you at birth and your surroundings - will have a huge influence on you as birth is a major life event. That is why educating yourself and wisely choosing your birth team and place is very very important. A mom or couple should ask all questions [...]

Birth Stories: It Was Beautiful Enough for Me

2021-01-20T19:56:13+00:00Tags: , |

I was 24 weeks pregnant when I returned to my homeland Singapore from Madinah. Initially my husband wished to have me deliver our baby in Madinah. Besides the hospital cost coming close to only less than 2000 riyal, he wanted our first child to be born in the city full of barakah. I was skeptical as I have heard stories from friends like how unnecessary caesareans were performed, how they were treated badly and bullied by the nurses and of women being stitched up without anesthesia. How true are all these? I'm not sure but it really made me want [...]

Birth Stories: “It’s the Big Day”

2020-11-27T21:42:52+00:00Tags: , |

It was four days past my estimated due date. I was relaxed and calmed as I had already known and learned from my AMANI training to trust Allah's design for birth and equip myself with  knowledge. I'd had signs of early labor about two weeks prior where mild surges would come and go. I did intense exercises every morning, including squats and belly dance and a lot of juicing. That day was another routine day of labor preparation and I did not expect any signs until I saw bloody show on my undergarment. It was after Zuhr prayer around 2pm [...]

Letter to the Mom Who Didn’t Have a Natural Birth

2020-11-16T21:13:36+00:00Tags: , , |

by Andrea Umm Abdullah Hey. I want you to look up for a bit. Look up from the floor. Look up from staring at your hands, wondering what/why/how. Look up from your stomach, the place that held your future. I want you to imagine a friend is sitting next to you. I hand you a piece of tissue, tell you to wipe your tears, and I look you in the eye and I say, "It's okay." It really is. It's okay that it didn't turn out the way you wanted. I know you did your best. You took classes, you [...]

Birth Stories: My First Experience Giving Birth

2020-11-06T20:09:08+00:00Tags: , , , , |

This was my first experience giving birth. What I really felt at that time was curiosity about what might happen next. I was a little afraid, but I was totally ready for labor. I had known about gentle/natural birth since I was got pregnant and I had already begun to find out about gentle birth. My husband and I chose a midwife and clinic that supported gentle birth, near my house, as my care provider. December 8th, 7 am I saw some blood spots on my panties, but I hadn't felt any contractions yet. Shortly afterwards, we went to the [...]
