I am currently completing my PhD in the School of Psychology, supervised by Professor Deborah Turnbull, Dr Amy Salter and Dr Chris Wilkinson.
I have a particular interest in the role psychology plays in maternal health and care. My PhD is part of a large randomised controlled trial being undertaken at the Women’s and Children’s Hospital in South Australia. My PhD is examining women’s psychosocial outcomes after receiving CTG or ST-Analysis fetal monitoring during labour.
