"I am responsible for vulnerable mothers and babies using our services. I also supervise midwives.
"I started as a nurse and then decided to train as a midwife at Guy’s and St Thomas'.
"I wanted to work here as it’s got a good reputation, with a lot of interesting cases, and good opportunities for staff, including education.
"I found that I loved the work and the clients. I became a sister and a community midwife, had my own children and went on to be labour ward manager.
"After working in one of the first, trailblazing, multi-agency Surestart projects, in Brixton, I became maternity matron for the antenatal service and fetal medicine. I have taken a very great interest in both child protection and domestic violence, and am now the lead on domestic violence. It is great that we are adopting more and more initiatives to keep women and children safe.
"Management here put the mothers at the centre of the care and the midwives are excellent - very kind and caring with the families going through the service. It's a great place to work. The maternity unit is well decorated and pleasant.
"It's busy and some of the mothers I work with can be very challenging. But I love coming to work, putting together a care package for a vulnerable mum and feeling I have had a real impact on her and her baby’s life."
