Om mig

Jag är barnmorska och docent med inriktning mot reproduktiv hälsa. Som barnmorska har jag främst varit verksam inom förlossningsvården och bedriver även forskning inriktad mot barnmorskans handläggning av förlossning och organisation av förlossningsvård. Jag undervisar studenter vid barnmorskeprogrammet på Karolinska Institutet.
