Biography

Alice joined the University of Huddersfield in February 2020 as a Senior Lecturer in Midwifery. She qualified as a midwife in 2001 and has worked in a wide range of clinical settings, predominantly in Edinburgh, and in London.

She completed her PhD in 2017 which explored the childbearing experiences of women with a high body weight.

During her career, Alice has worked clinically in complex care teams, as well as specialist homebirth teams. She then worked in clinical research for a number of years, contributing to a wide range of pregnancy-related projects, before becoming a midwifery lecturer in 2017

Alice’s primary research interest is how women perceive risk and experience stigma in pregnancy, in particular in the context of high maternal weight/obesity. She is interested in the alleviation of health inequalities, and in effective communication and co-production models within maternity care.
