About the Author

Dr Merryl Harvey qualified as a nurse in 1982. After qualifying as a midwife in 1984, her area of practice was neonatal intensive care. Merryl’s clinical career culminated in her working as a clinical teacher and this in turn led her to take up a post at Birmingham City University. Initially this was to run the post-registration neonatal intensive care course. In more recent years Merryl has been seconded to work on a number of large-scale, funded research projects which have focused on aspects of parenting and preterm birth. She secured the Bliss Research Fellow post based at the National Perinatal Epidemiology Unit (2004-2007). Her MSc explored aspects of the neonatal nurse practitioner role and her Ph D explored fathers experiences the birth and immediate care of their baby. Merryl has a strong journal publication history and co-authored a text on fatherhood in relation to midwifery and neonatal practice which was published in 2012. Merryl is now a Reader in Nursing and her main role at the University is as Chair of the Faculty Academic Ethics Committee. She is also co-lead of the Family Health Research Cluster.
