Aisha Al Hajjar, CPM-DE, MSM, BSM, LM, AMANI is an American Midwife and Doula who recently moved back to Delaware after spending several years living and serving families in Egypt and Saudi Arabia. A mother of eight, Aisha is a founding Board Member of the Saudi Midwifery Group, and the founder of AMANI Birth, an Islamic Childbirth Educator and Doula training program, as well as a Childbirth Education Program.
Aisha is the author of AMANI Birth: Assisting Mothers for Active Natural Instinctive Birth, the Ultimate Islamic Birth Preparation CD, and AMANI Birth: Quick Guide for Fathers. Aisha has lectured, served, and authored evidence-based articles that have been translated into more than a dozen languages and published around the world. In addition to her CPM, Aisha also holds a Master and Bachelor of Science in Midwifery (MSM & BSM), and is a Midwifery Specialist licensed by the Saudi Commission for Health Specialties (SCFHS).
Aisha’s philosophy and midwifery practice are driven by her desire to join the natural birth communities of Delaware, with a focus on providing options to the Muslim community. Aisha says, “I am excited to train more Muslim doulas and childbirth educators, who in turn can serve even more mothers in the Muslim communities via the AMANI Birth program. AMANI is open to all faiths, but it’s founded on Islam to especially serve the Muslim community.”
