Profile Summary

Sarah Davies BSc (Hons) RM ADM MTD PGCE MPhil Cert Couns. Senior Lecturer in the Directorate of Midwifery, Psychotherapy and Counselling in the School of Nursing, Midwifery, Social Work and Social Sciences.

My first degree was in English Literature and French at the University of Sussex. In Brighton, I volunteered in the Women's Health Centre, and doing this work made me realise I had a passion for women's health issues. This led me to study midwifery as a 'direct entrant' in North Manchester General Hospital from 1980-1982.

My first midwifery post was at the Jessop's Hospital for Women in Sheffield, followed by several years working as a community midwifery sister in Buxton, Peak District, where I gained all round midwifery experience including attendance at home births and at the freestanding birth centre.  I have also worked independently at various points in my career.

At Salford, I was instrumental in setting up and leading the MSc Midwifery - the only course of its kind in Greater Manchester. I lead two post qualification modules on Evidence Based Care for Normal Birth and teach across all undergraduate years. My clinical link is with the maternity unit at North Manchester General Hospital.

My M.Phil research (1999) was a longitudinal grounded theory study into the professional socialisation of student midwives. I have published papers in a number of midwifery and consumer journals.

My current research interests include student midwives' experiences of trauma, the maternity care of pregnant refugees, and the evaluaton of a peer supporter programme forvulnerable pregnant women.
