This event is happening because AIMS, ARM, NCT, RCM, IMUK, Albany Mums and Midwifery Practice, many parents and midwives are so concerned about the state of maternity services and the lack of options available to women. Matters were brought to a head by the sudden closure of the highly successful and loved Albany Midwifery Practice in south London.
We are rallying to make it clear to our Governments in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland that:
Women and families need to be looked after by known and trusted midwives throughout pregnancy, birth and after birth.
Women need to have easy access to stand alone birth centres run by midwives and to home births, as well as obstetric units.
