Soo Downe

Soo is a Professor of Midwifery Studies at the University of Central Lancashire, Preston, UK, and she was the Chair of EU COST Action IS0409. She is interested in the utility of complexity theory in understanding dynamic health states. Her specific focus is the normal physiology of childbirth, including the processes which can maximise normal birth, with a focus on the understanding of the nature of positive wellbeing (salutogenesis) as opposed to simply reducing pathology. She is a member of a range of national and international strategic bodies, and she has published more than 90 peer-reviewed papers.
