Liz Snapes is a midwife with special interest in public health, health promotion and inequalities. Other interests include fear of childbirth and breast feeding.
Liz graduated with BSc (Hons) Midwifery from Anglia Ruskin University and began my career in Chelmsford before moving to Norfolk. She completed the Teaching and Assessing in Clinical Practice (997) and worked around all practice areas with the majority of time spent in the community. Liz spent seven years as a Sure Start midwife with an emphasis on working with disadvantaged families and completed a PGCE in Counselling at the University of East Anglia before continuing on to complete an MSc in Public Health at Anglia Ruskin University.
The subject of review for the major project for Liz's MSc was tokophobia where it became apparent that there is a dearth of information and research in the UK with few services and support.
