Media: Our Boundaries

1. One of our key mission statements is to inform service users and the public alike as to the state of maternity services in Ireland. We are therefore delighted to give interviews and to publicise issues associated with the Maternity Service in Ireland via the spoken visual and written media.

2. As all our volunteers are mothers, early morning interviews and interviews at school collection times can be challenging. We do our very best to accommodate these requests, and we put our families on hold to fulfill such requests. We therefore respectfully ask radio and TV producers and researchers to be cognisant of the fact that we are all mothers and volunteers, and to give reasonable notice if interviews are to be cancelled. 

3. AIMS Ireland do not offer a pregnant person or mother “sourcing” service for journalists. The people who come to us do so after difficult experiences and it is inappropriate for us to petition them with requests for interviews or photographs from the media. 

Thank you and looking forward to working with you!
