Helen Smith

Regional Lead for Maternity Investigations (North)

Helen is a qualified midwife passionate about delivering safe, personalised and evidence-based care.

She is an advocate for offering women an informed choice when it comes to maternity services. In her last role as a consultant midwife at East Suffolk and North Essex NHS Foundation Trust, Helen developed a birth choices clinic for women seeking care outside of usual clinical guidance – for example supporting women to plan a home birth when they do not fit the usual low risk criteria to be offered this option. She has previously worked as a delivery suite coordinator and birth centre lead.

Helen holds an MSc in Advanced Practice and is a newborn infant physical examination (NIPE) trained midwife. She has also volunteered in Africa, where she worked with midwives and birth attendants to improve midwifery care.
