About me

I hold a senior position as University midwife at the Department of Women's Health and Health Professions at the Karolinska University Hospital. I am affiliated to the Reproductive, Perinatal and Pediatric Epidemiology research group at the Clinical Epidemiology Division, Karolinska Institutet.



Research description

I am mainly interested in improving maternity care for women giving birth and am currently involved in two research projects. I am the PI for the IMCA project (Improving maternity care with agile implementation approaches). IMCA is an implementation research project that explores if the agile methodology, combined with a model for designing behaviour change can complement an implementation framework to increase the knowledge on how to tailor context-specific implementation strategies in maternity care related to caesarean sections.

The other project is a multicentre randomized controlled trial which evaluates a clinical practice among midwives to prevent severe perineal trauma (One plus one trial). Follow up studies involve Swedish Women’s After Birth Experiences (SWEA).
