Delivery Suite Midwife
Mary Lynch works clinically as a Delivery Suite Midwife at NBT and as a Research Midwife for the WCHRU. She is also affiliated with the University of Bristol whilst she pursues a postgraduate research qualification (MRes).
She has worked with the WCHRU team in stillbirth research for the last three years. Most recently she has been involved in assessing the feasibility of integrating parental input into the perinatal mortality review process, which takes place after the loss of a baby before birth (Stillbirth) or shortly afterwards (Neonatal death) – the PARENTS study. This research has informed a new National Bereavement Care Pathway and Perinatal Mortality Review Tool (PMRT).
Mary is also a collaborator in a National Institute for Health Research project to develop a Core Outcome Set (COS) for interventions after stillbirth (iCHOOSE Study). She has also been closely involved in developing a set of Global Principles for Stillbirth in Low and Middle-income countries – an on-going project ongoing in collaboration with the International Stillbirth Alliance.
She is the Lead Midwife supporting Philippines PROMPT.
Mary is also involved in reviewing cases for the Each Baby Counts Programme.
