The Ultimate group birth preparation course in central Newcastle

Pregnant and living in Newcastle?

Come and join me, Jessica Ord - hypnobirthing expert, childbirth author & professional doula for 2 fun, relaxed afternoons carefully designed to help you feel calm, in control and ready for your baby's birth. 


 Over the past 6 years I've taught many antenatal and Hypnobirthing classes across the North East. I'm delighted to now bring my multi award winning, 5* rated birth preparation classes to John Lewis, Newcastle. 

Nestled within Newcastle's favourite department store, come join me and a group of other North East based parents to be in 'The Space' - a welcoming, tranquil room complete with private terrace. 

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

I know it's incredibly important that you're able to access reliable, evidence based information about birth in order to make the decisions which feel right for you, so you can go into (and out of!) birth feeling empowered, confident and in control. 


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.


Over the past 6 years I've worked with hundreds of couples just like you, to work towards the birth experience that THEY want. Having someone who regularly attends birth as a professional doula to guide and support you as you find the path which is right for you can feel invaluable. 

These multi award winning antenatal birth preparation courses are limited to no more than 6 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! 

Held across 2 Saturday afternoons, and including a special 'bonus' hour to help you plan for the time AFTER baby is born (extra hour held online & free to attend with your birth prep booking). 




AUGUST - Saturday 3rd & Saturday 10th - 1pm - 4pm each day 

OCTOBER - Saturday 5th & Saturday 12th - 1pm - 4pm each day



Your tailored experience begins right here...

With a complimentary 15 minute discovery call, should you wish...

Lets get to know each other...

Either over a quick call, or email you can help me get to know you a little better & you can get a feel for whether I'm the right Hypnobirthing teacher for you. 

Most couples tend to book in between 12 - 32 weeks & it's worth noting that group classes tend to fill up at least 1 month in advance. 

Tailoring your course to you

Once you have booked in on your chosen group course date, you'll receive your Hypnobirthing tracks via email so that you can begin your journey to a more confident birth right away.

You'll also receive a brief questionnaire so that you can let Jessica know of any worries, hopes or uniqueness to your pregnancy ahead of your course.


This means your classes can be perfectly tailored to your needs. 

It's time for your course!

Positively Pregnant group courses are spread across 2 full days - usually 2 consecutive Saturdays.


Classes are held in John Lewis, Newcastle in a beautiful private room (The Space). 


Timings are typically 1pm - 4pm each day. Courses run every other month (June/August/October)

Just wanted to say a massive thank you for preparing me for the birth of my daughter. Labour was more intense than I could ever have imagined, however I was able to let me body take over & ride out the sensations. I am so happy I did your course & I will be recommending you to every pregnant woman I meet

I recieved my box for the online course in the post this morning! I wasn't expecting it to be this beautiful! It even smells amazing! Such a luxurious touch to what is already an amazing course.
I've only watched the first 2 classes and already so much has shifted for me.

Labour was so magical. Towards the end the whole world just went still...I didn't feel pain, just total sublime joy & awe.
I still don't fully have the words for what this birth meant for me, but it was like a gift from the Universe to experience such a primal joy.
You helped me to fully prepare so that fear & pain never took over.
