about us

We are a family – run company, based in Port Elizabeth, South Africa, and working globally.

Childbirth educators understand that birth is a normal life event that deserves a family –  centred circle of care for the birthing woman and her family. 

We focus on wellness, health promotion, knowledge of informed consent, evidence-based care, and the use of nonmedical and self-care techniques to encourage a normal physiologic pregnancy, labour, and birth.

We fully understand the need for education of males and we embrace a family – centred approach. The birth of a baby means not only just that, but birth of a mother and a father and the whole family!

What a wonderful person she was…Zaahida was so supportive. She gave me information about what to expect in labour that I never heard of before…she made me feel relaxed and calm even though I was stressed

our mission

To make good – quality, professional, evidence-based, family – centred information and services more readily available.

To decrease trauma,

To decrease Post Partum Depression and anxiety,

To decrease the divorce rate and

To promote healthy, peaceful, conscious and thriving Muslim family relationships.

Regardless of colour, language, ethnicity, socioeconomic status.

 

 

Working with Zaahida has given me ease of mind before labour and plenty of reassurance to trust myself and my body’s capabilities to birth my baby. Before, I was unsure and nervous of the unknown and birthing alone previously was nerve-wracking
