AIMS has supported its work through membership since shortly after its founding in 1960. Membership is fundamental to our ability to undertake campaigns for improvements to the maternity services, produce the online AIMS Journal and birth information pages and to run the AIMS helpline. Until the end of 2017, membership was required to receive our printed Journals but since then the Journal has been available to all online, making it possible to share this vital information with a much wider audience. Although this removed the costs of printing and posting, membership is crucial to ensure that AIMS can continue its work to support women and their families to have a better and safer pregnancy and birth. By being a member of AIMS you are directly helping other women and families. AIMS is its members, and if you are also able to contribute your time to volunteer, you could make even more of a difference! Click here to see our volunteers page.
If you cannot afford the full amount then please contact us about a reduced rate; equally if you can afford more we will be very grateful to receive an extra donation.
Members will get regular Newsletters, but if you don't want to become a member of AIMS, you might be interested in joining our mailing list. This will keep you informed of AIMS and other events that may be of interest, as well as information about AIMS Journals, books and website content. We may also include information about maternity issue and campaigns that may be of interest. You can sign up to the list here
