AIMS Publications News

Having reviewed our publications strategy, we have decided not to revise several of the existing AIMS titles, but to focus our efforts on developing a series of accessible, short books on topics of key concern to women, especially those that are the subject of calls to the AIMS helpline. We intend that these will provide the essential information that individual women need in an easy-to-read format, as well as being of use to doulas, childbirth educators and birth activists. If you would be interested in working with AIMS on such a publication, or have ideas for topics, authors or illustrators that we could approach, please drop a line to publications@aims.org.uk

We will also publish more substantial works (such as our recent book on Gestational Diabetes) where we feel that that format will better meet the needs of women. Again, suggestions for new topics, authors or illustrators would be welcome.

Delivery

Our books and other items are available to purchase using a debit or credit card. We use Stripe which we hope will provide you with a straightforward shopping experience.

We post orders by second class post and parcel post to keep costs down, and orders will usually be dispatched the next working day. Royal Mail aims to deliver 2nd class post in the UK in two or three working days, including Saturdays.

Package and postage is charged at the rate of £4.99 for UK orders. For orders to Europe the charge is £9.99. The charge is £12.99 for orders being sent to Zone 1 countries (North America, South America, Africa, the Middle East, the Far East and South East Asia) and £14.99 for those being sent to Zone 2 countries (rest of the world including Singapore). For further details of postal zones please see www.royalmail.com/international-zones

We always welcome feedback. Please email publications@aims.org.uk with your comments, and please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or problems with an order.
