I am a lecturer in Midwifery at the University of Wolverhampton. My main interests in Midwifery include normality during childbearing and promoting breastfeeding and relationship building between mothers and babies. In terms of an academic perspective I am interested in enhancing the experience for international student midwives or where English is not their first language and I also have interests around interprofessional learning.
