I manange the midwifery programmes. My teaching and practice interests include breastfeeding, young mothers and postnatal care. I help secure and maintain UNICEF Baby Friendly status for the midwifery programmes, and my PhD research focused on the obstacles experienced by young mothers initiating and continuing to breastfeed in hospital in the early days after birth. I also have an interest in spiritual theories of maternity care, having previously taken a degree in Theology.
