Babies, mothers and midwives in Dail picket over threat to choice in childbirth On Thursday 4th November the Nurses and Midwives Bill 2010 moves to Committee stage in the Dail. AIMS Ireland and other birth support groups are picketing the Dail at 11 am on Wednesday, November 3rd to highlight their concerns about the Bill.
