WHAT WE DO
The AGM is held at our retreat in September every year. Venues vary around the UK to give everyone a chance to attend during the years, and are advertised in Midwifery Matters, on our website and via social media.
ARM is a non-hierarchical feminist organisation run by a steering group of members who are elected into post for 3 years, and supported by 5 key roles of National Coordinator, Treasurer, Membership Secretary, Social Media Coordinator and Midwifery Matters Editor.

We host local meetings which members are encouraged to attend. These meetings give an opportunity to connect with midwives who want to provide woman-centred care regardless of setting. Members say they really value meeting with like-minded people and sharing the challenges, heartbreaks and joys that always come along with childbirth. The meetings are also a place to organise local events and campaigns including protests against service cuts, and celebrations of good maternity care. We welcome midwives, student midwives, retired midwives, doulas, mums, dads, childbirth educators and anyone interested in our vision. If there isn’t a group near you, we can help you to start one and provide support while the group gets going.
