Introduction

I qualified as a midwife from the University of Salford in 2009 and initially worked as a community and hospital based midwife in Salford and Manchester.

I currently work as a core midwife at the Manchester Birth Centre, part of the Manchester University Foundation Trust. I have an excellent clinical skill set in intrapartum care, with a particular interest in low risk labour care and water birth including intermittent auscultation. I also work regularly on the consultant led unit caring for high risk patients.

During my career I have developed advanced skills in high dependency care, foetal heart monitoring, theatre, epidural care, newborn life support, newborn infant physical examination, advanced perineal repair and IV cannulation/phlebotomy/drugs.

I have devised and delivered training on obstetric emergencies in the community, water birth and labour care in a midwifery led unit. I also have extensive experience of perineal assessment and repair and have delivered training to newly qualified midwives in this skill.

I lead improvements in clinical practice and education through sharing learning from serious incidents and reporting systems. I have experience of devising, conducting and presenting audits. In addition, I have been instrumental in the development and delivery of pathways for women who are considering their options following a caesarean birth and was a co-founder of the home birth steering group.

Prior to becoming core staff on the Manchester birth centre, I worked as a community midwife for the Trust for 4 years. This involved ante-natal, intrapartum (including home births) and post-natal care. I was the main care provider for women from booking the pregnancy to discharge at 28 days post natal.

I accept instructions from both claimant and defendant solicitors and insurers. I have undergone formal training in the medico-legal process and am fully aware of my responsibilities under Civil Procedure Rules (CPR) pertaining to expert witnesses.
