Mrs Hayley Coffey

Senior Lecturer

School of Nursing, Midwifery and Social Work

Hayley is a senior lecturer in women’s health and neonatal care. She specialises in the holistic examination of the newborn.

I qualified as a midwife in 2012 and have experience of working in various settings including high risk, community and a co-located midwifery led birth centre. I am Newborn Infant Physical Examiner (NIPE) and lead the level 6/7 NIPE module. I maintain my clinical skills by holding a bank contract with my local trust and practice clinically. I am a Personal Academic Tutor and a cohort lead. Previous research includes the care of the family following a still birth, and women’s’ perceptions of the analgesic effects of sterile water injections for labour pain and the preparedness of student midwives for level 5 placements. 

I worked at the University of Greenwich in 2015-2016 as a Clinical Skills Lecturer before returning to clinical practice and completing a masters degree in Advanced Practice. I began my career at CCCU in 2021 with the Midwifery team as a lecturer, whilst undertaking a PGCAP to enhance my skills and progress to Senior Lecturer. 

I have a keen interest in perinatal mental health and neurodiversity and would like to explore this topic in more detail.
