Blackpool Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust
I am the newly appointed Managing Editor of the Student Midwife Journal at All4Maternity. I will guide the co-editors to accomplish their vision for the new journal. Being a midwife editor I am able to advocate for important midwifery values, interlinking topics to create meaningful and contextual work to be enjoyed by our readers. In particular I am committed to finding innovative ways to support student midwives as they transition through their studies.
I have a passion for developing concepts and design. I concurrently run BloodtoBaby.com, an award winning website dedicated to physiological transition of the newborn with optimal cord clamping, which I founded 4 years ago. BloodtoBaby continues to grow and is underpinned by my desire to improve global & public health and midwifery practice by gathering evidence and using technology powerfully to translate important information into manageable pieces for practitioners and women alike.
As a Masters student I have explored the benefits, challenges & consequences of integrating social media into midwifery practice. This could improve women’s health literacy, choice, empowerment and connectivity with healthcare professionals and be vital to future service sustainability. It has been a pleasure to help develop All4Maternity since it launched in 2017. Indeed this is a further example of web advancement teaching, sustaining and nurturing those within our privileged profession of Midwifery.
