AIMS Ireland was set up with the support of the Association for Improvements in the Maternity Services (AIMS UK). AIMS UK has been at the forefront of improving maternity services over the past 40 years. They publish a well-respected and widely read quarterly journal which focuses on current issues in maternity care, gives news about ongoing campaigns, and analyses the latest research. Parents and professionals alike find it an excellent source of information.

AIMS UK strongly believes that changes for women in childbirth come about as a result of supporting midwives as practitioners in their own right, who, in most cases, should undertake the care of mothers and babies throughout pregnancy, birth and afterwards. They support midwives enabling them to support mothers and babies in their care.

AIMS Ireland hope to have the same success in bringing information to women and families and bringing about improvements in the Irish maternity system.
