The Association of Radical Midwives (ARM) are midwives, student midwives and others in the UK committed to improving the maternity care provided by the NHS. They strongly believe that all women have the right to a service tailored more closely to their needs, and a sympathetic attitude on the part of their professional attendants.
They are primarily a support group for people having difficulty in getting or
giving good sympathetic, personalised midwifery care. A few of them are working
independently outside the NHS, in order to offer a more woman-centred, one-to-one, style of practice, which at present is not widely available within NHS maternity services. There are contacts and / or local groups all around UK, as well as several overseas members.
