Celeb mum-to-be Billie Faiers has been shown having a taster session of hypnobirthing on The Only Way is Essex.
And now Billie’s co-star Ferne McCann says Billie’s definitely all up for a hypnobirth – the trendy birthing technique more and more expectant mums are learning to help them ‘zone in’ to a deep state of relaxation for a stress-free labour.
Writing in her Star magazine column Ferne wrote: “I think she’s going for a hypnotherapy birth and has been trying out hypnotherapy classes.”
Other celebs who have chosen hypnobirthing include Angelina Jolie, Jade Jagger and Jessica Alba.
And Jessica previously talked about her experience during an interview with Ellen DeGeneres.
“It’s not like the clock in front of your face and you go out and you wake up and you got a baby,” she joked.
“Basically, my husband takes me through sort of a meditation. So he’s like saying, ‘You’re relaxed and you’re floating on clouds’ while I’m going through labour and contractions.
“I’m just concentrating on breathing and staying relaxed because it’s when you get tense, it makes the whole labour worse and more painful. That’s all it is. It’s not like a weird thing.”
