Lisa Common RM, BA, MA

Lecturer in Midwifery


My clinical passion is normal labour and birth in both the acute and community settings and respecting human rights in childbirth. I am passionate about supporting students to reach their full potential and I am particularly interested in research that supports the implementation of respectful, high quality maternity care.

  • About

    I am a midwifery lecturer and module leader who teaches across all three years of the midwifery programme. I enjoy being involved in both undergraduate and postgraduate education and in supporting students and midwives through each stage of their clinical and academic careers. I am a placement link lecturer and enjoy supporting students and mentors in practice.

    My clinical background includes time working in an acute maternity unit as a rotational midwife, a core labour ward midwife which also involved working in antenatal triage and on the high-dependency care rotations. I have also worked as a core midwife in an alongside midwife-led unit and as a community midwife. I have also spent time with maternity services in both Zambia and New Zealand.

    I am currently completing a PhD with the Nottingham University Business School that applies an improvement science approach to exploring models of maternity care that support home birth in England.

    My PhD has been co-funded by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) and The Health Foundation.
