Her doctoral research uses ethnography to explore the politics of care in Nordic midwifery work, tracing stories of wage disputes, employment and well-being amongst midwives and doulas in Iceland. Rebecca has worked as a midwife in London, and has a particular interest in the provision of antenatal care and reproductive health education. She is a graduate associate at the Centre for Cultures of Reproduction, Technologies and Health (CORTH), at the University of Sussex, and a member of the Association of Radical Midwives.
