General Enquiries

For general enquiries including press or media enquiries, requests for involvement with research projects or conferences etc. please contact enquiries@aims.org.uk

AIMS Helpline

The Helpline is intended for individual maternity service users or their supporters to seek information and support.

If you have an enquiry about an order from the AIMS shop please email publications@aims.org.uk. For all other enquiries please email enquiries@aims.org.uk.

AIMS supports all maternity service users to navigate the system as it exists, and campaigns for a system which truly meets the needs of all. The AIMS Helpline volunteers are all experienced in providing information and support on pregnancy and birth issues. We do not give medical advice, but instead we focus on helping those who contact the Helpline to find the information that they need to make informed decisions which are right for them, and support them to have their decision respected by their health care providers. They are also able to provide a listening ear and practical support for women who are unhappy with their experiences.

Email: helpline@aims.org.uk

This email will go to a group of AIMS volunteers and someone will respond as soon as possible.
