Insurance for Ireland's Independent Midwives
The Irish Nurses Organisation (INO) announced last week that from September 30, 2007 they will cease to offer insurance cover to Independent Midwives. This is a devastating blow to Ireland's hardworking Independent Midwives and for the women all across the Country who desire homebirths. The Association for Improvements in the Maternity Services (AIMS) Ireland asks for your signature in order to show support for Independent Midwives and the tremendous services they offer. We, the undersigned, petition to the INO to immediately reinstate malpractice insurance cover for Independent Midwives in Ireland.
