Biography

I am a nurse, midwife and health visitor, passionate about outcomes for children and families and reducing health inequalities. I have expertise in the delivery of projects that meet the needs of vulnerable and socially excluded groups, including pregnant women with HIV, pregnant teenagers and teenage parents, families of children subject to child protection plans, and young people living in deprived London boroughs. I am a regular columnist in numerous national healthcare journals, a guest lecturer at several universities and a speaker at conferences. I am the author of Tune In To Your Baby: Because Babies Don't Come with an Instruction Manual. I am a Queen's Nurse, a Fellow of The Institute of Health Visiting and a Fellow of The Royal College of Nursing. I was appointed a Member of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire (MBE) in the New Year 2019 Honours List for services to community nursing, children and families. I am also Curator of Nurses and Midwives Talk on Facebook. My Fellowship focused on trauma-informed approaches to care in response to adverse childhood experiences.
