About the event

This is an interactive Optimal Maternal Positioning workshop. 

You and your partner will learn:

  • What OMP is, how it works and why you should do it
  • the techniques, stretches and releases to do during pregnancy as you prepare for birth
  • what your partner can do to help you during pregnancy and during labour and birth. It is a very hands-on workshop!
  • how to help relieve those pregnancy aches and pains
  • the physiology of labour and birth process- what happens in the woman's body during labour and birth. How do I know when its time to call the midwife?
  • pain relief options
  • how to have an active birth even while lying down to rest, or if you are using an epidural

You will walk away with:

  • A series of practiced exercises you can do in just 15 minutes a day
  • Specific releases you can do to help discomfort during pregnancy
  • Confidence and Understanding of the labour and birth process 
  • Knowledge of how to have an active birth

I'm teaming up with my friend Cassie to talk about what to expect from life with a newborn too. Nappy changing, wrapping, feeding, settling etc.

We're also excited to announce that The Golden Month will be providing some simple gorgeous catering for the event!

Please reach out if you have any questions at all! Hope to see you there. Just hit the button to reserve your spot.

More about Ros & Cassie:

Ros McDonough

OMP Educator Midwife

I have over 25 years of experience as a midwife working in the South Australian public health system, primarily at the Queen Elizabeth and Women’s and Children’s Hospitals in Adelaide. 

Over the last seven years I’ve been running a community-based antenatal clinic for public health and have particularly enjoyed seeing mums returning for subsequent pregnancies with their growing family.

In 2015 I received my Childbirth and Parent Education certification which recognises my role in educating new parents (individual and group education). I love working with new parents, but now I’m able to teach more practical tools and skills to women and their partners without being limited by time or public funding.

I completed a  Masters of Midwifery in 2017, which informed my work as an academic at Flinders University teaching postgraduate midwives about investigations and diagnostics.

I believe it is my role as a midwife to provide women with the best possible care and make sure they are empowered, supported and encouraged to make informed, confident choices about their care. I’m here to help you harness your inner strength and build self-confidence as you journey through pregnancy and early parenting.

Cassie Stichel

Childbirth Educator Midwife

I live on the Fleurieu Peninsula, in the beautiful coastal town of Middleton, with my husband, three children and two dogs.

I am the founder of South Coast Midwifery, a service offering continuity of care for women and their families through pregnancy, birthing and the post-birth journey.

I have had the privilege of supporting women through pregnancy, birth and postnatal care for over a decade. Working as a Midwife in both the public and private hospital sectors, and as an educator for women and health practitioners.

In 2015, I completed the prescribing and diagnostic course through Griffith University and became an Endorsed Midwife. Recently moving into a private practice I established South Coast Midwifery, providing women and their families with flexible continuity of care in their own community.
