Meet a Midwife – Liz Mackley

Introducing Liz Mackley, Midwife, University Hospitals Bristol and Weston NHS Foundation Trust

On a typical day

Currently I am working in a busy Ante-Natal Clinic, assessing pregnant ladies, giving pregnancy vaccinations and giving advice as part of the team of midwives and doctors involved in the care of women with both complicated and low risk pregnancies.

One way I’ve made a difference as a nurse or midwife

Until recently I worked as a community midwife for 17 years. During that time I looked after many women and their families, often for more than one pregnancy giving continuity of care which we found was very positive to all. I even delivered some of their babies at home births which was great. People I’ve looked after even stop me in the street to show off their growing children.

What would you say to a young person interested in a career in nursing & midwifery?

Midwifery is a very challenging but also a very rewarding career. Be prepared to work hard!
