Join AIMS - Become a Member

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.

By being a member of AIMS you will be directly helping other women, birthing people 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.

We are aware that £25 is more than some can afford, if this is the case for you, then please email us to agree a lower subscription rate.

We have not increased our membership fees since 2008 and we are not planning to do so now. However, had we adjusted them for inflation (around 71% since then) the rate would be closer to £45. We know that many people could not afford this, but if you can we would be very grateful for an increased amount.

Membership Options

  • Annual Individual Membership £26 (£25 if setting up a standing order)
    Membership of AIMS for individuals. We send you regular newsletters with updates about the AIMS Journals, campaigns and other information and ways to get involved in AIMS activities.
  • Annual Organisation or Group Subscription £32.
    Group or organisational membership. You will be sent information about each AIMS Journal by email which you can distribute to your group or organisation.
