A little more about me...

I live on the Essex and Suffolk border, with my husband, Matt, and our two children, Edward who is 12,  and Lucy, who is 9. Embracing motherhood has brought me immense happiness, but it has also presented me with challenges and responsibilities that I never anticipated. Nevertheless, I wouldn't trade this role for anything in the world.


Liz Wallis Doula

In 2022, I made a difficult decision to step away from my nursing career within the NHS. While it was a difficult decision, I knew deep down it was the right one for both myself and my family. I embarked on a search to find a role that ignited my passion and allowed me to deliver the level of care that was in line with my values.

I grew up in Abingdon, Oxfordshire, and briefly returned there after completing my nursing degree at The University of Southampton. Eventually, I settled in Halstead, Essex, where I am closer to my family.


Throughout my 16 years as a nurse, I held various positions, spending much of my time in community and general practice settings. These experiences provided me a wealth of knowledge and skills, enabling me to build connections with people and positively impact their health and well-being. However, the mounting pressures and limitations of the healthcare system ultimately forced me to leave the profession. Despite having a desire to train as a midwife, I hesitated to pursue it, fearing it would subject me to similar constraints and burdens that I experienced in nursing.

Since childhood, I've held a fascination with all things related to pregnancy and childbirth. Becoming a mother myself deepened this passion, and it has led me on a personal journey of self-discovery. I realised that I wanted to support women and their families during their own unique journey into an through parenthood. Drawing from the knowledge and experiences I've gained, I hoped to provide the kind of support and information that I longed for during my path into motherhood. This desire led me to discover the role of a doula, and I instantly knew this was the path I needed to follow.

Once I made the decision to become a doula I completed my training and have continued the ongoing learning and development through research, reading, and attending workshops and courses. Along the way, I have connected with fellow doulas and birthworkers, building relationships and deepening my understanding of the birthing and perinatal world.

From this, I now find immense fulfilment and joy in being able to share my insights with women and families as I support them on their own unique journeys.
