Clinical Research Studies

As a result of enquires from midwives Joan, Melissa, Lisa and Marie this branch of the Mothers and Babies Research Centre website has been updated to include all the current research studies being conducted through the MBRC at the John Hunter Hospital in Newcastle. We hope it is a useful resource for all caregivers, particularly those working in obstetrics.

We are eternally grateful to the many Midwives who have helped and contributed so successfully to the clinical aspects of the research conducted at the MBRC over the years:

  • Trish Engel
  • Marianne Knox
  • Michelle Giles
  • Kathryn Wheeler
  • Julie Vermer
  • Janette Beveryly
  • Paula Candish
  • Amy McMahon
  • Fiona McKenzie
  • Krystnya Siech
  • Therese Finnegan
  • Kelly Steel
