About Malin Hansson

I am a doctoral student in Reproductive and Perinatal Health and have a master in the same area. I am a registered nurse, registered midwife, sexologist, prophylaxis instructor, certified masseur, certified medical yoga and medical pregnancy yoga instructor.




My doctoral thesis focus on the work situation for midwives at delivery wards focusing models of care, MiMo, and job satisfaction. (MiMo - Midwifery model of woman-centered childbirth care.)

I have previously done research on couple relationship, sexuality, parenthood and factors leading to separation.

I have also been an interview coordinator and interviewer in the WAG-project (Women and Alcohol in Gothenburg) at epidemiology and social medicine at Gothenburg University.

I teach at the midwifery program at Gothenburg University and give lectures at maternity and child clinics, delivery wards among other places, about sexuality, parenthood, couple relationship after birth and factors leading to separation and what protective factors there is in a couple relationship.
