My career began when I undertook my midwifery training at King's College London. An interest in consent to episiotomy then arose through observation of practice. This led me to undertake the MSc in Women's Health at UCL and align my dissertation with this topic. I now work as a Midwifery Lecturer at London South Bank University and am passionate about improving consent processes for both birthing people and healthcare professionals.
