My practice and research interests focus on the sustainability of safe and appropriate maternity services in rural and remote rural areas. After many years of rural practice I am now employed as a senior lecturer in midwifery at Otago Polytechnic in Dunedin NZ. In this role I take every opportunity to share with students the health and community benefits of well resourced maternity and other health services in rural areas.
