‘Leading and inspiring excellence in maternity care’ was the First conference led by consultant midwives held at the Royal Society of Medicine.

Sharing the panel with some really awesome midwives….

But most of all… meeting the legendary @wdsavage ‏ , receiving first prize and winning the Wendy Savage Award…Thank you! This  award will enable us to share our work even further as I head to the MAMA Conference in May.

For me, reflections of the day included how I might lead change for childbearing women with hypermobile  and support the midwifery profession to thrive in their wellbeing. To that end, I have begun working on the generation of new evidence to support midwives in work-related psychological distress and evidence to support new understandings in relation to how we care for people having babies more effectively.
