What happens during postnatal perineal wound assessment? Perspectives of midwives and women.



Since 2009 I have worked on research studies mainly focused on causes of infertility, reproductive failure and fertility treatments themselves. My PhD was an ethnographic study of infertile couples as they started medical treatments, including IVF, to help their situation. I am particularly interested in using qualitative methodologies as an alternative research paradigm, for example in investigating patient experiences. My current research interests include transition to parenthood after IVF, fertility, contraception and pre-conception care and more latterly, minority ethnic experiences of educational and healthcare institutions.
