About the event

Dr. Susan Jacoby recently retired from her position as Associate Professor of Midwifery at Mount Royal University. Her research is focused on underserved immigrant populations, especially Somali, Ethiopian, and Sudanese women with Female Genital Mutilation. Subsequent research with vulnerable populations and social justice issues includes perinatal health literacy, intimate partner violence, postpartum depression, waterbirth and midwifery education. She participated in developing curriculum and teaching in the Mount Royal University Senior Midwives Tutor Training Project (SMTTP) to reduce neonatal and maternal mortality in Ethiopia from 2012-2018. Her sabbatical year was spent at the World Health Organization in Geneva, Switzerland from 2018-2019 working on maternal-child health projects. She has published on the safety and efficacy of waterbirth, leading to a provincial-wide clinical guideline and policy for Alberta Health Services. Since retiring from teaching, she has remained active in research and is currently conducting a study on collaborative care among obstetricians and midwives in Canada, and consults regularly on maternal-child health.
