AMANI Birth Update

Bismillah al-Rahman al-Rahim

Alhamdulelah, it is with all praise and thanks to Allah that we celebrated AMANI Birth’s first year of operation with over 20 workshops held and over 100 women participating!  

We now have teachers/doulas (or teachers/doulas in training) in eight countries!

  1. Saudi Arabia
  2. Indonesia
  3. Malaysia
  4. UAE
  5. Egypt
  6. Lebanon
  7. United Kingdom
  8. United States of America

Please join us in dua (prayer) for each one of our trainees and affiliates as they work to serve the birthing ummah (community).  Also we pray that Allah bless each AMANI Family with ease and healthy children who are pleasing to Allah and their parents.

In addition we published our book, AMANI Birth, on Kindle and through Amazon.  It should soon be available in book stores, insha’Allah.

Our AMANI Birth Student Workbook is also published for use by AMANI Birth Students in AMANI classes with AMANI Birth Teachers.

And we just recently published the same student workbook in Arabic (we’re really excited about this!).

Still to come is the AMANI Birth Quick Guide for Fathers, insha’Allah.

We couldn’t not have accomplished all of this without the mercy of Allah (SWT) and it is to Him that all praise is due.  


  1. Congratulations on such a wonderful, successful year! So glad I was able to see the family while you were here!

  2. Report from amazon.com: Kindle editions are not available in Saudi Arabia.
    Could anything be done about this?

  3. MashAllaah may Allaah swt make it a huge success. May it be of benefit for the whole world. JazakAllaahukhairn for doing this.

  4. Thank you so much Sandy, such a blessing to see you and you have been such a tremendous support of my midwifery studies! Almost finished, just 5 births and 6 classes to go, insha’Alllah!

    Anonymous, we have the hard copies of the AMANI Birth book available in Saudi. Please contact info@amanibirth.com for details.
