Managing Director/Midwife

Liz Wilkes

Hi everyone, I established My Midwives over a decade ago to provide better information and education to enable women to feel more control over their experience from pregnancy through birth and the post birth period. I have been a midwife for nearly 30 years and have taught childbirth education for most of that time. My role as the Managing Director of Australia's largest private midwifery practice is what keeps me most busy though and I am proud to say that our outcomes are absolutely outstanding compared to every other model available in Australian maternity care. Many other things also fit into the mix including consultancy to government, public and private sector organisations on midwifery policy, mental health in the perinatal period, home birth and continuity of care. I am a mother of three, experiencing different births myself, including my last birth in water at home. In my spare time I like relaxing with family and friends, walking my dog, reading and - normally - travel.
