Katja Shipp

Research Midwife

  • OSPREA team

I joined the Nuffield Department of Women's and Reproductive Health in July 2022, working as a Research Midwife for the Oxford Safer Pregnancy Alliance (OSPREA), on a secondment.

I am currently involved in recruiting participants to various portfolio studies, eg. COPE (The Carboprost or Oxytocin Postpartum haemorrhage Effectiveness Study), SMA (Spinal Muscular Atrophy), PANDA-Dose (pilot clinical trial to test the acceptability and feasibility of different doses of oral iron supplementation to prevent maternal anaemia), CAPE (Calcium supplementation for prevention of pre-eclampsia in high risk women) and HARMONIE (a phase IIIb randomized open-label study of nirsevimab (vaccine) in preventing hospitalisations due to RSV (respiratory syncytial virus) in infants).

As well as being a qualified nurse (Germany, 2001), I've also worked as a clinical midwife (qualified in 2013 at Oxford Brookes University) in Germany and England.

I am also a qualified aquanatal teacher and birth choices midwife as well as 'Birth Space Oxford' facilitator.
