Welcome to Sara Wickham’s information hubs! This page serves as a map to help you find many of Sara’s articles and blog posts about birth and midwifery. We’ve recently reorganised our site and we now offer a series of information hubs – read on to find out more!

All of the articles on this website are republished with the permission of the original journal or publication.  Please respect that they are copyright and for personal use only: you are welcome to link to them but it is illegal to copy / paste / republish these on the web or in any other form.  If you see Sara’s previously published articles on any site other than my own or that of the original publisher, the chances are that they have been posted without permission.


How to find articles on this website

If you’re looking for a specific article and you know part or all of the title, type or paste it into the search box. If it’s available on this site, that’s the fastest way of finding it.

If it doesn’t come up, that may be because it is now out-of-date and we have removed it from our site. Try typing a keyword or topic area into the search box instead; you may find something newer.

Or scroll down for a list of information hubs onto which we’ve gathered Sara’s articles and blog posts to make it easier to find what you need.
