TRIGGER warning for some UK midwives
Mary Steen, a seasoned midwife whose stories and experiences offer a window into the riveting world of midwifery. From the bustling wards of Leeds to the tranquil ambience of Wakefield, Mary's journey is not just a personal narrative but a chronicle of the evolution of midwifery itself.
Ever heard of Feme Pad? It's an innovation that started as a personal need and developed into an NHS-backed project aimed at post-birth healing for women. The creation of the Feme Pad is just one testament to Mary's dedication to women's health. But her journey didn't stop there. Juggling her PhD with other responsibilities, Mary faced surprises and challenges in her research that paved the way to new discoveries and insights. And Mary's influence extends beyond the UK. Her work in midwifery research has had a global impact, especially in Africa where a World Bank grant has helped midwives across the continent.
