Midwife Lecturer, Supervisor of Midwives and qualified hypnobirthing teacher. 

I have been a midwife since January 1990 and have a strong philosophy of woman centred care.  Prior to that I was a nurse and specialised in Burns and Plastics surgery.  I have experienced a varied career as a midwife in hospital, community and education settings and enjoy facilitating learning in future midwives through problem based learning, creative arts and social media.  

I have led in projects including peer support breastfeeding training, teenage pregnancy peer support, use of the AUDIT C in antenatal bookings and caseload midwifery.  My interests include interprofessional collaboration, the culture of midwifery, midwifery regulation and student midwife and midwife resilience.
