As a volunteer with the WRA European Network, Natasha Philips is actively supporting the Alliance to ensure the voices of pregnant migrant and refugee women are heard through film, photography, social and traditional media, and pressing for change in policies which are putting women and their babies at risk. Natasha joined the alliance in 2016 and has been involved in project managing the delivery of “Spaces of Sanctuary” photography exhibition in Hull.

Natasha has a BA in women’s studies, post graduate degree in health education and, subsequently earned a master’s in leadership in health and social care. Natasha has spent most of her career within public health working to address population based health inequality across sexual and reproductive healthcare. She was drawn to the Alliance because as a mother, she wants to ensure that all women receive safe maternity care and felt she had skills that she could offer to support the alliance to work towards achieving this in the UK.

When not at work Natasha enjoys time with her family and is currently training for her first marathon.
