AMANI Childbirth Education Classes

Assisting Mothers for Active, Natural, Instinctive Birth

With AMANI Birth, Evana Births is focused on providing expectant parents with education to prepare for their birth and doula support with a focus on Islamic values. 

 

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 God 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.

 

 

 

 

AMANI Teachers Provide Women Only as well as Couples Classes to Prepare for a Blessed Start in Life!

 

Natural childbirth isn't easy but it is worth it! Plan and prepare for as natural a birth as possible and be ready to use your B.R.A.I.N. when medical interventions are suggested so you can make informed decisions about your care. Please note that AMANI does not provide medical advice or services and we recommend that all expectant parents seek proper attendance for their birth. Most childbirths can be managed with little or no pharmaceutical or medical interference, however, all mothers should also be realistic and ready to adapt should complications arise. 

 

Plan for natural and be wise if interventions become necessary.

 

I recommend reading the AMANI Birth book as a foundation in your discoveries about the blessings and miracles of childbirth.

Private childbirth classes are a convenient option for those families who find that “traditional” childbirth classes do not meet their needs:

 

    •    those families with non-traditional work hours, who are busy in the evening or on weekends

    •    people on bedrest

    •    extremely busy professionals whose work schedules do not allow for extended time in class

    •    families with children at home

    •    families with transportation issues

    •    circumstances that make attending a traditional class awkward or unappealing
