Elizabeth is a mother to two grown up boys. She is a midwife, registered nurse, child and family clinician, lecturer and researcher with over 25 years’ experience working with mothers, babies and their families.
She is passionate about raising awareness of birth trauma and its consequences and is currently doing a PhD on the ‘psychological consequences of somatic vaginal births’. In addition to Professor Dietz’s findings, Liz’s research has identified an urgent need for women to find a place where they can feel understood and get the help they need to address the after effects of a traumatic delivery. Her vision is to provide a safe space for affected women and their families to find support whilst also providing a direct source of objective information for clinicians.
