Jude Field

Jude Field is a midwifery lecturer at Bangor University in North Wales, UK, where she teaches pre-registration and post-registration courses.

Jude is passionate about all women being supported to make informed decisions about their care, and her PhD work has focused on how women decide whether they wish to give birth at home. This led Jude to consider the idea of an ‘active offer of planned home birth’, and the development of an approach that can be used by midwives to underpin their support for women as they move through the birth place decision making process.
