About Liz

Who am I and what is my background?

Liz Nightingale

Recently retired from midwifery, I have sixteen years’ experience as a midwife, formally with the NHS in both case loading and community based posts and latterly ten years’ experience providing independent midwifery care to women and their families in Oxfordshire, Berkshire and beyond.

Now, as Nightingale Birth Friend, I work in partnership with women and their partners through pregnancy, birth and then babymoon. By building trusting and supportive relationships with birthing couples and families, I encourage them to make evidence informed choices about their personal best birth path. Knowing and trusting someone who will be with you during the birth of your baby is a powerful, beneficial and healing experience. I offer other services to support birthing mothers too.

Please contact me to learn more.



  1. Dear Liz
    I’d love to speak to you about your offerings as a birth friend. I’m 12 weeks pregnant with my second child and am looking for some additional support at the birth next April.
    Let me know when might be a convenient time to speak.
    Very best,
