Midwife receives top honour for her inspirational research

tina lavenderCongratulations to Professor Dame Tina Lavender who has been recognised in the BBC's 100 inspirational women for 2015, as one of the world's top experts in midwifery.

Tina holds an honorary contract at Saint Marys and specialises in the management of prolonged labour and the use of the partograph - a tool designed to help midwives monitor births.

She acts as an advisor to the World Health Organisation and developed a board game which helps African midwives detect prolonged and obstructed labour to prevent women dying in childbirth.
