A little bit about me
Hi, I'm Jessica Ord, Founder of Positively Pregnant!
I'm a Northumberland based Mummy & farmer's wife and I have made it my life's work and mission to help inspire women to reclaim their personal power in childbirth and in life.
I am a clinical hypnotherapist, (certified by The Academy of Modern Applied Psychology) a Hypnobirthing practitioner and a Personal Development Therapist specialising in Female Wellbeing. I have an Undergraduate degree in English Literature & LInguistics, and a masters in Creative Writing - I have a fascination with words, easy to see why the practice of Hypnotherapy appeals!
Having used Hypnobirthing to prepare for the birth of my first child, it was my amazement and awe of what was physically achievable with simple shifts of mindset, and hypnosis techniques which fuelled my passion to study hypnotherapy. I now feel privileged to be able to help people from all walks of life to unleash their full potential.
I trained to become a Hypnobirthing practitioner through a Royal College of Midwifery approved training course, and decided 6 months ago that although I loved the 'big brand' Hypnobirthing company I was part of, that I had a huge amount more I wanted to share with women and their birthing partners. I created Positively Pregnant out of love and a desire to help pregnant parents as much as possible in a very real and practical way. Now, as well as a great selection of original Hypnobirthing techniques, we also learn about birth rights, feeling assertive in making choices, navigating the maternity care system and more practical steps in making your birth plan and understanding the physiology of birth.
I firmly believe that a positive birth experience can happen under any circumstance, as long as the birthing woman feels confident in her choices, feels supported and makes her decisions based on positivity rather than fear.
My cosy relaxation room is located at our family farm, just outside Chatton, Northumberland.
