Fearne Cotton Opens Up About Hypnobirthing: 'It Was The Most Intense And Euphoric Experience Ever'

Fearne Cotton has shared an account of her hypnobirthing experience after recently giving birth to her second child, Honey Krissy.

The mum-of-two revealed all on Facebook with a photo of her 'Yes Mum' cards, which draw on techniques from mindfulness and hypnobirthing to "give mums a daily pat on the back".

Hypnobirthing involves self-hypnosis, relaxation and breathing techniques that expectant mothers can use instead of pain relief during labour.

Cotton wrote: "Love my yes mum cards from @theyesmummum who brilliantly guided me through hypnobirthing before my big day. Having a natural, pain relief free birth was the most intense and euphoric experience ever."

In her post, Cotton continued: "My first birth was a different story so I've experienced varying sides of birth and I'm glad for both.

"Although all we want is a healthy baby I think we should remember how amazing the female body is and the strength of a woman.

"Obviously there is no right or wrong birth and they can be magical in many ways I just feel blessed to have had this experience thanks to hypnobirthing."

Cotton prompted other mums to share their hypnobirthing stories in the comments.

One mother wrote: "I did hypnobirthing with my second child too and loved every minute of my birth, embracing my surges and allowing my body to relax and bring her into the world peacefully.

"I was in the paper as midwife didn't believe I was in labour or 'pushing' until she appeared."
