Campaigns Page 1 of 1 (Consultation Responses)

AIMS has campaigned for improvements to the maternity services in the UK since 1960. We run national campaigns, support local people with their campaigns and support individual women, birthing people and families via our helpline. AIMS responds to multiple NICE guideline consultations, and has been instrumental in changing both guidance and language to better support women and babies through their maternity journey.

AIMS works towards better births for all by campaigning and information sharing, protecting human rights in childbirth and helping women to know their rights, whatever birth they want, and wherever they want it.
