I am working as a postdoctoral research fellow in Sexual and Reproductive Health, Department of Nursing and at the Judith Lumley Centre, La Trobe University, Melbourne, Australia. I spent my first year as a postdoc in Australia and are continuing working closely with my Australian research team during my second year of postdoc in Sweden. My research is mainly about midwifery continuity of care models, where women have a “known” midwife or a small team of midwives during pregnancy, labour, birth and postpartum.
 
I have worked clinically as a midwife since 2006, mainly at the delivery ward and within postnatal care. In October 2019, I finilised my doctoral thesis at the Department of Clinical Science, Obstetrics and Gynecology, Umeå University, on midwives' and obstetricians' experience of obstetric ultrasound in Rwanda and Vietnam. During my time as a PhD student, we went to Rwanda, Vietnam and Norway for data collection and I also went at two occasions to La Trobe University, Melbourne, Australia for research visits.
 
After my dissertation, I have worked as a research assistant within the GYNOS project (GYnecologic cohort NOrthern Sweden), as a process manager for gynecological cancer, RCC North, and as a research midwife in the RoMaNs project (Restoration of Microbiota in Newborns). From October 2020, I have been working as an Assistant Professor in Sexual and Reproductive Health combined with a clinical position as a midwife at the Center for Obstetrics and Gynecology, Region Västerbotten (NUS), but I am temporarily on leave due to the international postdoc.
