Harry and Izzy Judd reveal they are planning a hypnobirth

After admitting to HELLO! magazine that they didn't have a birth plan, it sounds like Harry and Izzy Judd are set for a hypnobirth. The couple, who announced their miracle pregnancy in the summer, have been attending classes in preparation for their baby's January arrival.

"I am doing hypnobirthing," said Harry. "It sounds really out there but I've learnt how important your breathing is during labour and it's taught me how to help Izzy in a practical sense.

"We have gone to a few sessions together and have practiced our breathing through meditation so we know how to stay calm during the birth."

Izzy and Harry Judd turned to IVF to conceive their first baby

"I'm not saying we're going to have the perfect pregnancy and not need any pain relief but we just wanted to prepare ourselves," Harry, 29, said to Mail Online.

The McBusted singer also opened up about his pregnant wife's cravings, saying: "She's experiencing some crazy cravings at the moment, like coating tomatoes in salt and eating heaps of plastic cheese, crisps and drinking lots of milk. She's started to want crackers late at night too."

Harry and Izzy aren't the only McBusted couple who have used hypnobirthing. Tom Fletcher and his wife Giovanna, who is expecting her second baby, followed the same path, with the author writing in her HELLO! Online blog that labour was "the most amazingly powerful experience".

"Every baby is a miracle but we do feel so very lucky," said Izzy, who was diagnosed with polycystic ovaries

In August, Harry and Izzy revealed to HELLO! that they had turned to IVF to help conceive their miracle baby. The couple, who married in December 2012, suffered a miscarriage last year.

"You feel like you are never going to be the ones who get to say, 'We are having a baby'. That is why we feel so blessed now," said Harry.

"In an ideal world when you're ready to start a family you hope you will conceive in the first few months of trying. We were like, no, no we won't need IVF, it won't be us. IVF was like something you didn't talk about. We thought it would be fine."

"Every baby is a miracle but we do feel so very lucky," said Izzy, who was diagnosed with polycystic ovaries in her twenties. "I never wanted to stop believing that we would have a family. But you do feel like someone has pressed pause on your life and you can't go anywhere."

Harry and Izzy both announced their pregnancy on Instagram, with the mum-to-be sweetly holding up her hands in the shape of a heart over her little bump.
