    AIMS Ireland stands for the Association for Improvements in the Maternity Services – our goal is to highlight areas of concern and implement changes in maternity related areas – pregnancy, labour/birth and post natal period. This is a huge area with many issues that need addressing.

    AIMS has been working incredibly hard on many issues the past 6 months. AIMS is not just a campaign pressure group, but is an organisation which provides information, research and support services to women effected by issues in maternity care.

    Anything I can do to help, then I am very happy to help!!
