Rebecca Hudson-Tandy
Lecturer in Midwifery



Rebecca qualified as a midwife in 2012 from the direct entry midwifery programme at the University of Bradford. From there she held rotational posts at Bradford Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust and Airedale NHS Foundation Trust before commencing a Research Midwife post at Leeds Teaching Hospitals. Working in a high quality clinical research environment gave Rebecca a valuable insight into research. During this time she completed an MSc in Advanced Practice, exploring research methods, the scope of an Advanced Practitioner and its application to midwifery and contemporary midwifery issues including perinatal mental health.

Rebecca then moved back into postnatal care where she was involved in the care of mothers and babies, often with complex health needs. It was here she reignited her passion for infant feeding and supporting students’ learning and assessment. 

Rebecca joined the Midwifery Education team in York in February 2021 from the University of Central Lancashire, where she commenced her career in education in September 2020.
