AMANI Birth Classes

“The creator is not a careless mechanic”- Ina May Gaskin

AMANI stands for Assisting Mothers for an Active, Natural and Instinctive birth. It conveys the understanding of the processes of pregnancy, labor and birth from an Islamic viewpoint, trusting in Allah’s miraculous design of creating, supporting and giving new life. By first understanding these foundations, we believe, can help a mother  navigate through ( sometimes challenging) her journey towards motherhood.
