Hollie qualified from the University of Northampton with a first class honours in 2018. During her time as a student midwife, she became a student board member for the Florence Network Conference which is a European network composed of higher education institutions. She was fortunate to travel to Switzerland and Belgium as part of this role which the UON facilitated. Once qualified she commenced employment at Northampton General Hospital where she completed a rotational preceptorship programme within maternity. Her passion for physiological birth led her to become a full time clinical midwife on the Barratt Birth Centre which is a midwifery led unit at Northampton General Hospital. This involved occasionally working within the homebirth team within Northampton and surrounding areas. Due to the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic, Hollie then joined the team on the Maternity Day Unit where she provided care for those with pregnancy complications. This involved working closely with the Antenatal Clinic and the Fetal Medicine Unit. Hollie is passionate about providing evidence-based education to empower and facilitate individual choice. She is also passionate in supporting student midwives which led her to become a lecturer at the UON in August 2022. Hollie is extremely excited for the opportunity to empower students to achieve their full potential and to take advantage of what the UON has to offer. She is looking forward to supporting and preparing them as they transition from student to qualified midwives of the future.
