Background

Tegan qualified as a Midwife in 2007 and has since worked in both obstetric and community settings including as a delivery suite co-ordinator. She has a particular passion for community midwifery care, having worked in a standalone Midwife-Led Birth Centre as a community midwife and later as the Team Lead. She is committed to ensuring women-centred care, and the promotion and protection of normality in childbirth, regardless of the clinical setting. Alongside lecturing, she maintains regular clinical practice.

She has been involved in service development to promote improved continuity of care. Through team leading she has developed managerial skills and an understanding of organisational influences on the provision of maternity care. Experienced in antenatal education including hypnobirthing, she is also a NIPE practitioner. She has a particular interest in communication, particularly in Midwives’ interactions with women who speak limited English.

In her Master’s degree in Advanced Midwifery Practice she completed a piece of phenomenological research into Midwives’ use of interpreters when caring for women with limited spoken English.
