Rebekah started her research career examining medication use in pregnancy and later child development for her PhD at the University of Liverpool in 2008.  She has since worked as a post-doc on two NIHR funded studies: The ESMI study (Kings College London and The University of Manchester) which examined the effectiveness of mental health services for mothers in the perinatal period; and the REPROVIDE study (The University of Bristol) which examined the effectiveness of a new domestic violence service.
