Hello everyone,

I’d like to introduce myself. I am a Registered Midwife and Senior Lecturer at the University of Canberra in Australia. Maternal and infant health and well being and infant nutrition are my interests. I am part of several research groups that are examining support for breastfeeding and the maternal experience of parenting in a pandemic as well as different aspects of midwifery education.

I look forward to reading the daily posts

Cheers Marjorie
