AMANI Affiliate Since March 3, 2020 (Online Facilitator Since 2022)
Assalamu alaikum warahmathullah and welcome! Fathima Mazmi is a Sri Lankan, who was born and lived all her life in Saudi Arabia. She completed her CIE advanced levels and then went on to complete her hifdh of the Qur'an. Soon after that, she found her better half and got married at the age of 20. She conceived right afterwards and that's when she realized that she really knew absolutely nothing about birth.
She started pursuing evidence-based knowledge on birth, and unfortunately hadn't done so sufficiently by the time of her birth. Her birth experience is her passion and drive today towards educating the families around er regarding their pregnancy and birth, and how this is actually a blessed, normal process for the majority of the families. She has gone on to certify with AMANI Birth and has additionally trained as a VBAC doula from the VBAC link.
Unfortunately, cultures like hers are hard-shelled and the "norm" isn't actually the norm. However, she will strive her very best to do as much as possible to get the word out there, because she truly and deeply believes that Allah's creation is divine and perfect!
She hopes and prays that the ummah will benefit from her knowledge, even if not today, tomorrow!!
