Current positions

Teaching Fellow in Midwifery


I am a qualified NMC registered Midwife from 2011. After qualification I have had a wide range of experience in the NHS as a midwife covering all areas including labour ward, antenatal/postnatal ward, antenatal clinics, community, co-located birth centre, stand alone birth centre, home births and parent education. I have experience as a Practice Education Facilitator and Senior Clinical Educator. My experience has been gained in the North West and Yorkshire.

I work with the charity Pregnancy Sickness Support to provide voluntary support such as teaching, education and 1:1 peer support to women suffering from the condition. I also teach hypnobirthing to families.

I have a keen interest in Midwifery Education and I have recently started my career in academic education at the University of Salford where I will be commencing my Masters in Midwifery Education in the near future
