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.
