MSc, Midwifery and Women’s Health
BA Midwifery, RM
Suzanne Reynolds has been a practising midwife since 2001 working in both high and low risk maternity units in Birmingham, within the delivery suite setting.
Suzanne has always had an interest in maternal health, and in 2010 Suzanne took part in a BBC documentary called ‘The Toughest Place to be a midwife’, experiencing midwifery practice in Liberia. Following this, Suzanne became a trustee with the charity Life for African Mothers, assisting in organising midwifery training visits to Liberia and Sierra Leone. She has also undertaken voluntary work in Somaliland and took part in the RCM’s Global Twinning Project, supporting MIDSON in Nepal.
Suzanne undertook a secondment as Specialist Midwife for FGM in 2014 and was appointed as Specialist Midwife for Homeless and Migrant Women at Heart of England NHS Foundation Trust in 2016 – a new and innovative role within both the Trust and the region.
Suzanne has recently completed her MSc in Midwifery and Women’s Heath. The challenges faced by homeless pregnant women compelled Suzanne to undertake her dissertation research in this area.
