Creator and Teacher of ‘Biomechanics for Birth’ courses for birth professionals and associates and a birth preparation class called ‘Moving for an Easier Birth’
Molly is an experienced midwife. She has been a hypnobirth and birth preparation teacher, an associate university lecturer, created courses for midwives and birth associates, campaigned for midwife led birth units and been a passionate student and enabler of normal physiological birth. Like many midwives, she was often frustrated by the obstacles in mainstream maternity care – something that changed for the better when she joined Norwich’s newly opened Midwife Led Unit where, over a period of 7 years, she witnessed hundreds of undisturbed physiological births. Working in a midwife led birth unit and attending hundreds of home births gave Molly the opportunity to make a systematic exploration of midwifery skills and observations that can help resolve long difficult labours caused by malposition.
The techniques and strategies that emerged from this time helped her revolutionise her own practice and she began to regularly witness rapid and dramatic progress as she put them to use in “difficult labours”. People would often say “Molly, I see you’ve worked your magic again”, and Molly would reply through, only slightly gritted teeth, “this is not magic, these techniques and skills are based in science- Biomechanics – the study of human movement, everyone working in the birth world should know this information.
Molly is now travelling the world teaching gentle and effective ways of resolving malposition using interventions based on biomechanics”
