Dr Jane Hirst MBBS MPH FRANZCOG PhD, Senior Fellow in Perinatal Health, Nuffield Department of Obstetrics & Gynaecology

Dr Jane Hirst discusses the INTERGROWTH-21st Project. She explores the argument that it is the education levels, health, environment and medical treatment of women that determines how a baby develops, and not ethnicity or race.

She is also an active clinical researcher with projects focussed on global perinatal health and investigating novel approaches to improve health care delivery. She has a particular interest in gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM), preterm birth and stillbirth.
