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.

It teaches skills that have the potential to transform practice, especially when working with obstructed Labour. Molly examines the physiology of the pelvis, the biomechanics of birth, approaches to diagnosing malposition more effectively and techniques to help the pelvis and baby move into better positions for birth
