Carol has been a midwife since 1989 with her previous midwifery experience encompassed working in the maternity units in Ormskirk, Southport, Preston and Shyira, Rwanda.

Her involvement with ALSO, which is a world and countrywide charity supporting the development of Obstetric clinical skills, has provided her with opportunities to collaborate both nationally and internationally around the subject area of obstetric emergency management.

Despite being an expert in the management of obstetric emergencies, Carol also has a strong focus in the area of promoting normal midwifery. As part of a team who successfully established the midwifery led unit in Southport, she demonstrated how focussing on normal midwifery can produce remarkable results, achieving birth without intervention.

Carol has a keen interest in both inter-professional learning and clinical simulation and has previously had responsibility for the development of skills provision within midwifery programmes, which led to the development of an interactive provision within the pre-registration midwifery programme and CPD provision. These skills have created collaboration between other health programmes including ODP and paramedics.
