Sally Baddock

Professor Sally Baddock has developed a strong platform of research over the last 20 years in the area of infant behaviour and physiology during sleep and the impact of sleep practices on sudden unexpected death in infancy (SUDI). This includes investigating the benefits and risks of infant-parent bed-sharing while recognising the importance of cultural context. She is part of a team that has produced significant research outputs from four major studies on infant sleep – three of which have been funded by the Health Research Council of New Zealand, and all of which have attracted widespread international recognition and at times have generated widespread media attention and influenced public policy.
Sally is a member of the academic staff in the School of Midwifery. She has taught in the Health Sciences for over 30 years and for 7 years she was Co-Head of School. As Professor she continues her leadership roles across the polytechnic with a focus on research, and continues to teach physiology at postgraduate level and supervise candidates for the Master of Midwifery. Masters projects include a range of explorations focused on the evidence underpinning midwifery practices and include both qualitative and quantitative methodologies. She pursues further research interests through collaborations with staff from the School of Midwifery, including a series of projects investigating learner experiences in Midwifery education. She supports research of colleagues through her role as research coordinator in the school.
