I’m an expert who specialises in providing advice on:
* Antenatal, childbirth or postnatal issues
* Maternity rights, maternity benefits and the law when pregnant
* Legal issues of birth injuries
I’ve been a practising midwife for over 25 years and come from a long lineage of midwives. I’m exceptionally well placed to offer you help and advice on any antenatal, childbirth or postnatal issues. Whatever concerns you may have, help is just a phone call away.
I can offer you a truly unique and valuable perspective on the complete 40-week pregnancy journey, through to childbirth. I’m a staunch supporter and facilitator of mums breastfeeding their children for an absolute minimum of six months. I’m also a strong believer in women's choice during this journey, while ensuring the safe outcome for both mother and child remains paramount.
I have a wide variety of experience in countries as diverse as Saudi Arabia and Hong Kong, as well as the NHS, private and home settings here in the UK.
As a clinical negligence lawyer I specialise in legal issues around birth injuries. Maternity rights, maternity benefits and the law when pregnant is another area of specialism. I also have a keen interest in female genital cutting and female circumcision, having written two detailed dissertations on the condition itself and the recent legislation in the UK.
