Practice this drill. Smash. Block. Lift.
Player 1 serves. Player 2 smashes. Player 1 blocks. Player 2 then lifts. PLayer 1 smashes. This is a great drill to practice your block and smash.
1 When blocking feet slightly apart on your toes, in the tiger posistion. Racket in front of you.
2 Square yourself slightly to the smasher.
3 Light fingers, take the pace off the shuttle.
4 Practice. Practice. Practice
When you have become competant then you can block cross court. Or whip the smash accross court which becomes a offensive shot.

What i do in this situation is just get on one knee almost and send drop transfeering most power from the smash.

Tap the birdie lightly across the net so she doesn't have another chance to smash at you.
Maybe try lifting it to her weak side (right handers-left court.)
