20Jo Lucas is a local mother and hypnobirthing practitioner. She runs ‘Fearless Mother’, providing hypnobirthing classes and pregnancy relaxation sessions. Jo tells us a little more about hypnobirthing and the sessions she provides here.

“Hypnobirthing is a misleading name, think of it more as calm birthing. You go into a state of hypnosis several times a day, for example, when driving do you ever think ‘how the heck did I get home?’ It is merely a state of calm, allowing natural instinct embedded in your subconscious to take control, so that the thinking part of your brain can have a break.

I am a mother

KG Hypnotbirthing is an in-depth antenatal course designed to release fear and increase confidence during birth. After using KG Hypnobirthing for the birth of my first daughter I became obsessed with spreading the word to other expectant mothers that their birthing experiences didn’t have to be fearful and full of TV dramatized screaming and pain. A year later and I was a qualified KG Hypnobirthing Practitioner, able to teach hypnobirthing techniques, antenatal classes and pregnancy relaxation to expectant mothers. Every good birth story gives me goose bumps, if it is that good for me how amazing must it feel to be that mother.

This is how women used to give birth and are beginning to again. Advocates for hypnobirthing have included Fearne Cotton, Princess Catherine, Angelina Jolie, Jessica Alba and Giovanna Fletcher to name a few. If so many women have done it and loved it, isn’t it at least worth a try? The word needs to be spread, that birth is not to be feared. It is the greatest burst of oxytocin (aka happy hormone) you will ever experience. If you want to see a good example of a hypnobirth look up Daisy’s Birth on YouTube, it is one of my favourites.

You will feel EMPOWERED and you will be a FEARLESS MOTHER.”
