Midwife and Honorary Fellow
University of Wolverhampton
Elsie Gayle is a midwife in private practice, with significant national and international experience.
Along with the Mimosa Midwives Group Practice, she facilitates and manages the delivery of ‘culturally safe’ maternity care; a simple mechanism to help any woman to choose services which are safe for them to use.
She is dedicated to ameliorate the historical inequalities in service provision, the root causes of obstetric violence; the poor outcomes for disadvantaged mothers and babies, and in particular those of African descent.
In 2017 she received Honorary Fellowship of the University of Wolverhampton, in recognition of her contribution and passion and commitment towards midwifery, women’s rights in childbirth and mental health services within the BME community.
Elsie Co-Chairs the Society of African and Caribbean Midwives in the UK.
