Hello and Welcome to
We’re a grassroots organisation based in Nottinghamshire run by Anna and Manisha – both Minority Ethnic mothers – who are providing emotional and practical support to Polish-speaking and Muslim parents from pregnancy and beyond.
We believe that all families, whatever their ethnic background or language, should get access to evidence-based information and non-judgemental support – throughout pregnancy, birth and parenting. And we are here to make that happen.
With both of us having first-hand experience of navigating the maternity system whilst also holding onto our cultural identity, we understand the challenges you may be facing. We are working hard to remove barriers by providing free culturally safe, empathetic and compassionate support to improve clinical and psychological outcomes for mothers and their families.
We’re a compassionate community focusing on supporting our communities. We listen, guide and mentor parents to feel confident in making the right choices for themselves and their families, whilst also considering and embracing their cultural background.
Our support to parents is offered face-to-face in Nottingham and Newark as well as online throughout the UK. Our guidance ranges from postnatal and breastfeeding groups, 1:1 support, workshops, online classes and free access our ‘Bump to Baby‘ antenatal course.
We’ve recently started our Doula Care Programme available throughout the UK which is free for low-income families and those who’s English is their second language.
We believe we also need to improve the care that families are receiving from healthcare professionals, so we also have our own unique and comprehensive Doula Training Programme and CPDs for healthcare professionals.
