This proclamation from AIMSIreland to the Birthing Women of Ireland is to mark the centenary of the original Irish Proclamation which was read from the GPO 100 years ago today. The original proclamation strove to ensure equal rights for all the future citizens of Ireland, a worthy aspiration that has yet to be fully realised.
There are many areas of maternity care which are not equitable, not evidenced based and in which women and the babies they are birthing could be better served. Under the 8th amendment to the Irish Constitution women are not treated as equal citizens once they become pregnant. They surrender bodily autonomy to the State and as such are not free. AIMSIreland strives to fight these inequities and to ensure that all women who birth in Ireland have the right to safe, compassionate, evidenced based care and bodily autonomy
