Louisa joined the university in 2016 an Assistant Lecturer and PhD student. Prior to joining the University, Louisa worked as a as a midwife and later completed a postgraduate qualification to become a health visitor working in the West Midlands.
Building on the research already being undertaken at BCU, Louisa plans to explore parents' experiences of parenting preterm multiples using a grounded theory approach. By interviewing parents at various intervals during their first year of parenting their preterm infants Louisa hopes to capture their stories. She expects to gain a greater understanding of the challenges faced by parents of preterm multiples and contribute to improving the services available to families.
