Molly O'Brien has become a full time freelance teacher after a 20 year career as a full time clinical midwife in the NHS. Her career has been characterised by a passion to use and develop midwifery skills that help women keep birth normal.

Fed up with saying “it’s not magic - it’s science”  to colleagues asking her to "work her magic" with women, she decided she had to teach her accumulated skills. The course began as  in house teaching at the Norfolk and Norwich hospital and has evolved into an information packed mix of practical techniques, anatomy and physiology and salutogenesis. It's aimed primarily at midwives but of value to antenatal educators, doulas, physiotherapists and all other birth professionals and has already travelled regularly to venues in Spain and once as far as  Chile as well as UK presentations.

Molly examines the physiology of the pelvis, the biomechanics of birth, approaches to diagnosing labour dystocia more effectively and techniques to create more space for the baby's journey through the pelvis.

The online course offer the same information as the face to face course but are split 40/60 between live zoom sessions and prerecorded and written material. This course is being run on one day as a morning and afternoon session and is aimed at people who find it difficult to manage two consecutive days

Molly O’Brien worked as a clinical midwife in the NHS for 25 years. She has been an associate lecturer, and freelance trainer. In the course of her career she has  developed techniques to diagnose and rectify labour dystocia and her Biomechanics for Birth course teaches skills to help midwives optimise physiology, recognise dystocia and apply midwifery based, non-invasive interventions to resolve issues. 

Over the past 3 years, through her company, Optimal Birth, she’s delivered this information in over 130 UK and overseas Hospitals and to thousands of midwives, doulas and doctors around the world via her own face to face and online courses. Our feedback suggests they are delivering results everywhere it's been put into practice.

We will be running very few FtF courses outside of the NHS this year - at the moment this is the only one scheduled. The venue is Effraspace which is less than ten minutes walk from Brixton and Hern Hill stations

This advanced course is for birth workers who have already attended Molly's biomechanics course and have recorded at least three case studies of biomechanics in action (antenatal or intrapartum) - These case studies will be an element of the interactive part of the day

It offers a a more in depth understanding of biomechanics and the physiology of birth including the role of psoas muscles and myofascia, more techniques and positions to relieve dystocia, working with epidurals, a discussion of common midwifery and medical practices that can hinder the birth process, brainstorming "making it mainstream", case studies, and pathways to research and much more.
