I am a midwife for over 35 years. Since 1991, I have been engaged in teaching midwifery first as a midwife teacher in The Rotunda Hospital, Dublin and, since 2000, as a lecturer here in Trinity College Dublin. In 2000, I was involved with colleagues in Our Lady of Lourdes, Drogheda and The Rotunda Hospital in the development of the Direct Entry to Midwifery pilot programme. I was Director of the Midwifery Programmes in the School until 2012 and, with my colleagues, worked closely with our partners, the Coombe Women and Infants University Hospital and the Rotunda Hospital to provide the Higher Diploma and B.Sc. in Midwifery programmes.
