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.

In cosy Glasgow living rooms a new ARM group is gaining momentum. Built from the full breadth of birth work: prospective and student midwives, current, retired and Independent midwives, doulas and other birth workers. So far we’ve had lively discussions on what makes us glad to be involved in birth work, gentle caesareans and the trials and tribulations of our role in an over stretched NHS, we’ve even had a film screening and discussion as well as sharing resources and books we love…and amongst all of this we have of course, in true ARM style, found time to drink tea and eat cake!
If this sounds like your cup of tea (ha!) then join us on facebook where we post our upcoming events: www.facebook.com/groups/ARMwestofscotland
