Purple Walnut Midwife

Oxfordshire wide

For most women, pregnancy, birth and motherhood are normal physiological life events. They are miraculous celebration of wellness, not illnesses! I see birth as a spiritual, as well as a physical and emotional event, and find everything about it fascinating and amazing. My individually tailored care seeks to promote all these. By trusting and respecting the Holy energy of birth, I am committed to helping women find the power and strength deep within themselves to birth their babies and become mothers. My care helps women, their partners, and their children, find joy and delight in their new baby and prepares them for their new life roles.

    Liz is a truly amazing person. She was our midwife for our third baby and it was a life-changing, empowering experience. She is very generous, compassionate, knowledgeable, incredibly skilled, and has the most calm and reassuring presence. She also organised a Blessingway ceremony for me as part of my antenatal care which was just wonderful. I can't recommend her highly enough, but as the previous person said she is her own best advertisement.

    We had Liz as our midwife for our second child. She was wonderful - calm at all times, which has a knock-on effect! - and having antenatal care at home, in my own time and no feeling of being rushed was fantastic. The actual birth was very well-managed and I felt in very safe hands. Liz continued to come to the house for several days and weeks afterwards, which was great. I've recommended her to several friends and would do so to anyone looking for calm, intelligent antenatal and labour care.

    Liz was my midwife for my second baby. She was incredibly supportive, and there for me and my family every step of the way during the pregnancy. She attended the birth at my home and gently welcomed my baby into the world. She helped us to establish breastfeeding when we had a few initial problems, and answered any questions I had no matter how big or small. I am delighted that Liz was our midwife and if I were having another baby one of the first phone calls I'd make would be to book her again.

    I had a debriefing session with Liz. She was wonderful - warm, empathetic, down to earth. I hope one day to have her as my midwife so I won't ever need a debriefing session again. If you're dithering over whether to avail yourself of her services I strongly recommend meeting her first as I'm sure she will be her own best advertisement.
