Liz Labby, CNM, is a certified nurse-midwife at Women's Healthcare Associates in Portland, Oregon.
“I hope that every person who comes to see me leaves feeling more invested in their health than when they came in, and that they feel they now have a resource in me and in our clinic that helps them to achieve their health goals. I love connecting personally with patients and hope that our provider-patient bond is a two-way street where we can work together. I hope to create relationships where my patients feel like I am part of the community of people who support them to lead their best lives.”
Liz enjoys hearing learning her patients' stories and being a resource for information and help when they need it most. She approaches caring for people as a team, working with each individual and family to form mutual trust and a personal relationship that often begins during pregnancy and continues as their needs and concerns change. One of the most rewarding aspects of supporting pregnant people for Liz is witnessing the strength they draw upon to go through pregnancy, labor, birth and the transformation to parenthood. She enjoys watching their stories unfold as they find new aspects of being and balance those with the old.
Liz has a toddler, Danny, who is an endless source of joy and entertainment. When she’s not spending time with family, she is an avid knitter enjoys spending time outdoors hiking, backpacking and tending chickens and a vegetable garden.
