My classes sole purpose is to empower, nurture and prepare you for your baby's birth...

I know it's important that you're able to access reliable, evidence based, woman centred information about birth in order to make the decisions which feel right for you.


At the same time, you deserve to feel seen and understood as individuals, not simply 'another couple' on the conveyor belt of antenatal care. I've been there; feeling overwhelmed by so much information around pregnancy and birth, and ultimately burying my head in the sand out of overwhelm. That's why I created Positively Pregnant.


I'm trained to the highest possible standard in all things birth, having trained with some of the world leading midwives, hypnotherapists, Doulas and researchers. It's safe to say you're in good hands!


These multi award winning antenatal hypnobirthing courses are limited to just a few couples, so that you get the very best in service, attention and information - it also means you'll have plenty of opportunities to ask questions & get to know your classmates well. Many of the couples who have embarked on a course together remain great friends years down the line! 

Choose from either my 2 day course held over 2 consecutive weekends (10 hours total) or weekday evening classes which are made up of 4 x 2 hour sessions. Both options are held at my welcoming North East Farm, in our specially designed 'relaxation room' - a beautiful converted arched stable building, complete with a 'smithy kitchen' with a working fireplace, farmhouse table & all the comforts of home.  

Lucy's positive birth story...

"I got to 6cm at home, listening to your tracks on my birth ball! The midwives were super impressed at my breathing through contractions, following all of your methods. I had a very speedy birth, with only a few puffs of gas & air. I felt like Wonder Woman afterwards!


I can't thank you enough for giving us the determination to be really clear on the kind of birth we wanted & the confidence to know I was strong enough to do it"

Rebecca's positive birth story...

"I still don't fully have the words for what this birth meant to me, but it was like a gift from the universe to experience such a raw, healthy, primal joy.


Labour was so magical...getting into the pool was bliss, and then I had a little panic. The midwife told me to feel for the baby's head. And the whole world went still. I didn't feel any pain at all, just total sublime joy and awe.


And then I just held his head and waited, it was like time was suspended & I knew I was about to meet my baby."

  • Hypnobirthing  - 5 original and uniquely simple techniques . These techniques are designed to help you feel calm and in control during labour, and to help you manage the intensity of contractions.

  • The physical side of Birth - Learn about the different stages of labour, what's ACTUALLY happening during a contraction, waters going, pushing - everything you could possibly need to know to feel prepared and confident! 

  • Your Birth Room (and getting there!) - making a perfect birth 'nest' that will help labour to progress smoothly​

  • Birth Partner - Forget sitting in the corner feeling like a 'spare part' - your partner will leave the day feeling confident and happy in how they can fully support you & be an essential part of your baby's birth. ​

  • Finding evidence, research & reliable information to make your decisions around pregnancy & birth. 

  • Birth Rights - We take a look at these and give you the confidence to take your birth experience into your own hands. ​​

Meet your hypnobirthing teacher... 

Hi! I'm Jessica Ord, award winning birth educator, Doula & hypnobirthing specialist. 

I pride myself in providing the very best in depth, evidence based but heart centred bespoke classes. Each course is perfectly tailored to the needs, worries and interests of the parents joining.

Over the past 6 years I have won several major awards, including 'Best Antenatal course - England', 'Hypnobirthing Specialist of the Year' and 'Best in pregnancy support services'. 

As well as having trained with some of the world's leading midwives, hypnotherapists, researchers & doulas, I have also had two incredibly positive and empowering natural births of my own (one a 'high risk' hospital birth & an unassisted home birth).


I know what you really need to know, understand and have access to in order to have a beautiful experience of birth, no matter what your circumstances or wishes are. 

I know how important it is that you not only have access to evidence based, trustworthy information about birth, but also that you feel seen and understood as an individual, not just 'another' pregnant woman on the conveyor belt of antenatal care. ​

  • Can I bring my partner to the classes?
    Yes, of course! My courses are designed for both you and your birth partner(s). If your partner is limited with time, and can only make one of the classes - let me know in advance & we'll ensure the 'essentials' for them to know are covered!
  • When should I start my classes?
    I would aim to begin your classes anywhere between 20 and 30 weeks pregnant. Classes tend to get booked up a month in advance, so do factor this in when booking in with me.
  • How long do classes take?
    My classes are held over 2 full days; usually held over consecutive Sundays.
  • Do you offer payment plans?
    Yes! You can choose to split the price of your classes in half, booking with a 50% deposit. The remaining balance is due 2 weeks before your classes start. If you would like to split your course price up into smaller monthly payments, please do get in touch & we can arrange this.
  • Do I need to take a regular antenatal course as well?
    No; the Positively Pregnant course is a complete antenatal & hypnobirthing course. This means you'll be learning everything you would in any other antenatal class PLUS you have the (huge) added benefit of hypnobirthing.
  • I'm no good at meditation/ yoga/ mindfulness... does it matter?
    Absolutely not. That's not what we're doing at all; yes, I'll be teaching you some super simple yet effective relaxation techniques but there's something for everyone. Just come as you are! (PS - I'm no good at meditation either...!)
