Royal College of Midwives (RCM), National Childbirth Trust (NCT) Independent Midwives UK (IM UK) Association of Radical Midwives (ARM) Association for Improvements in Maternity Services (AIMS) and the Albany Mums Support Group present:

THE ‘RECLAIMING BIRTH’ RALLY SUNDAY, MARCH 7th 2010

Please consider joining us for this important Rally to support mothers and babies.  “Mothers and babies are the foundations of our society, what is more important than getting the foundations right?”

This is a once in a lifetime opportunity – with an election coming up – to send a very loud message, there is a real sense of all the different stakeholders being united in one voice and it could, with hindsight be seen as the turning point for the midwifery profession.

We demand that all women should have a midwife they can get to know, be able to access home birth, a local birth centre, and that there should be independent midwifery available as an option for women to choose.

Meet at 1.00PM in Geraldine Mary Harmsworth Park, Lambeth Road, SE14EQ

We will march to Whitehall to hand in a petition to the Health Minister and letters to the Prime Minister

Master of Ceremonies: Peter Duncan.  Speakers include: Professor Wendy Savage, AIMS Chair Beverley Beech, Albany Midwife Becky Reed, IM UK Board Member Annie Francis, NCT CEO Belinda Phipps, Albany Mums Support Group campaigner Emma Neamish and Duncan Fisher OBE

PLEASE TELL EVERYONE ABOUT THIS IMPORTANT RALLY.
