As I am passionate to work in MNCH and Midwifery; therefore, most of my teaching, practice and research is related to it. I have experience to prepare, review and execute midwifery curriculum. I am also involved in facilitating master training of trainers and refresher trainings for midwives and midwifery educators in Pakistan. Although, there are a number of midwives who are practicing independently in rural parts of Pakistan; but, we as a clinical stream are promoting midwives scope of practice in hospital by initiating midwifery led services in collaboration with obstetricians. Apart from this, I have been involved in qualitative and some quantitative studies; but my expertise is mostly in qualitative research. I am passionate to conduct research in midwifery education and practice to promote evidence-based practices and improve maternity care services provided midwives in Pakistan.
