Pregnant mum wants to livestream her labour on Instagram

A Bacchus Marsh mother of three is planning on livestreaming the labour of her fourth child on Instagram.

Jessica Hood is due on Christmas Day, and this time around she wanted to try something different.

She told Ross and John she’s suffered with anxiety in the past, and wants to help other women afraid or nervous about the birth process.

“When I do this, it’s something I’m very confident in,” she said.

“It’s just going to be on an iPhone, nothing professional just streaming on Instagram on the live stories, so anyone can tune in really.”

Ms Hood has promised there won’t be anything graphic, but it’s more to show how labour progresses.

“I’m basically just filming the contractions, and inside the hospital, no pushing at all,” she said.

“Very discreet.”
