Midwife and Paramedic
Aimee Yarrington has been a qualified midwife since 2003. She has worked in all areas of midwifery practice, from the high risk consultant led units to the low risk stand-alone midwife-led units. She left full-time midwifery practice to join the ambulance service, starting as an emergency care assistant and working her way up to paramedic, while always keeping her midwifery practice up to date. She has worked in several areas within the ambulance service including the emergency operations centre and the education and training department. Her work towards improving the education of pre-hospital maternity care has led to her being awarded a fellowship award from the College of Paramedics. Aimee strives to improve the teaching and education for clinicians in dealing with pre-hospital maternity care.
