Providing sun safety advice: The midwife's role

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


There is currently a global increase in women being diagnosed with melanoma during their childbearing years. Many women are delaying motherhood and pregnancy, and starting their families later in life, after completing education and establishing careers. As melanoma incidences increase with age, more women could be faced with developing melanoma before or during pregnancy. Therefore, midwives play an intrinsic role in proving information and education regarding sun safety for themselves, their newborns and families.
