Julia joined the University of Leicester in 2016 to undertake a PhD studentship exploring variations in care following altered fetal movement. This is a collaborative project between SAPPHIRE and TIMMS, with qualitative methods and sociological theory shaping an exploration of this widely recognised risk factor for stillbirth. Julia’s academic career started with a Modern and Medieval languages BA at the University of Cambridge, with honorary MA (Cantab). After several years as a youth worker, she turned to a career in midwifery, graduating from King’s College London in 2014 with a BSc in Midwifery with Registration. Julia continues to work as a midwife on a part-time basis in London and Derbyshire. In her spare time, Julia is facilitator for the Positive Birth Movement Sheffield, hypnobirthing teacher, and occasional (but keen) rock climber.
