SOUTHERN Cross University's Gold Coast campus has a new head of campus and appropriately it is a professor in midwifery.

Professor Kathleen Fahy was appointed Head of Campus by Vice Chancellor Professor Peter Lee and will oversee some of the university's latest additions including Building B which will be finished in time for the first session of 2013 as well as the concept plans for Building C.

"I am so pleased to take up the role in what is an exciting time for the university at the Gold Coast," Prof Fahy said.

"My goals in this new role include ensuring that the residents and businesses in the Gold Coast and Tweed regions benefit from the education, business and employment opportunities that a local university campus offers.

"Another major goal is working to ensure that Gold Coast campus students have a great university experience."

Prof Fahy has had an extensive career in midwifery and as an academic and has been the primary curriculum writer for a number of degrees in nursing and midwifery.

She has published over 45 peer-reviewed papers, is the co-editor of a midwifery theory textbook and is the editor-in-chief or the journal omen and Birth, an international peer-reviewed midwifery journal.

Prof Fahy has done extensive research of subjects such as clinical reasoning in midwifery, normal breech birth, normal placental birth and teenage childbearing and recently took part in an ABC radio special report into teenage childbearing.

"My research is underpinned by the commitment to learn how to optimise the health and well-being of women and babies and to learn how to change the way maternity care is provided if change is indicated," Prof Fahy said.

Prof Fahy, who lives in Casuarina and is mother of two daughters, said she also loved attending art galleries and museums as well as walking on the beach, cycling and Tai Chi.
