ARM can be a life-saver for those feeling overwhelmed by issues in the maternity services whether as a midwife or a service user. We can help, and we value your contribution. All members are welcome and non-members may attend a taster meeting to see if you like us!
East Midlands ARM has meetings the first Monday of each month, alternating between a Derby venue and a Nottingham venue. Please contact Sarah if you’d like to attend and we’ll be in touch to confirm the address. (We tend to meet in people’s houses so we don’t always advertise the venue.)
Bring and share veggie snacks or cakes/biscuits and enjoy a good chinwag.

Michelle Beacock – Ormskirk
We are a group of midwives,student midwives, doulas and women who have an interest in midwifery and maternity matters.We meet monthly in members homes usually in the evenings. We discuss and debate current midwifery issues, birth stories and research. A doll and pelvis and an endless supply of tea and coffee and cake complements the caring and sharing and excellent conversation. For the last eight years we have planned and organised an annual ARM study day. These have been very popular and evaluated very well. All members are included in this and themes for the day are based on the views of the group. New members to the group are very welcome.
