It’s been hard for Gemma as she admitted recently she’s had an emotional rollercoaster because she wished her late dad David could have met her first child.
What is hypnobirthing?
Hypnobirthing is described as a complete antenatal education which teaches the expectant mother breathing techniques and self hypnosis for a natural birth, free of pain relief.
The method teaches women how to relax their bodies to reduce pain and avoid releasing adrenaline caused by stress, which can prolong labour.
The method has many celebrity fans including Angelina Jolie, and reportedly Kate Middleton.
Soap star Gemma was just 17 when her father David passed away from a heart attack aged 52, despite never smoking and only drinking alcohol occasionally.
She said: ‘My dad taught me everything, expect how to live without him.
‘It dawned on me today the wonderful relationship I had with my grandparents when I was growing up, and then it hit me my dad won’t get to meet his Grandchild.
‘Seems crazy… I blame the pregnancy hormones but today has been a bloody rollercoaster. Fits of laughter to sobbing. Thankfully, I had cookies’
All Gemma’s fans have been on her pregnancy journey with her as she has been documenting the stages with bump snaps and candid captions on social media.
