Biography

I have had a long and varied career in hospital, community and independent clinical midwifery in the UK and in South Africa. This has invariably been combined with both formal and informal teaching in clinical and academic settings. Along the way, I was a Principal Investigator on an influential large-scale RCT of the third stage of labour and, following on from this I completed my PhD looking at Discourses of blood loss in normal childbirth. I am currently researching in two areas. I am in a team researching the experience of women who breastfeed following a diagnosis of breast cancer. In addition I am investigating the barriers and enablers to student midwives' learning around normal birth.

I have broad interests in midwifery, particularly maternity care in low-resource settings.
