Parents wanted for NHS information film – deadline 15th Feb 2012

“I wonder if you can help.

I am currently working on a project called Digital Babies (a Digital Care Social Enterprise) which is a collaboration between ITN, NHS Choices and The Royal College of Midwives.

The aim of the project is to form 100+ bite sized video clips answering 100 of the most commonly asked questions of new parents and parents to be. By doing this we hope to inform future mums and dads of the answers as simply and visually as possible, hearing mums and dads talking honestly about their experiences. This will help first time mums, particularly those struggling in literacy to understand more fully the so many different stages of pregnancy and childbirth.

As all the questions relate in one way or other to pregnancy, childbirth and newborns, I am looking for a number of mums (and their partners) to take part in a few bite sized videos to be filmed at a studio in Bristol on Friday 17th February. The videos will comprise of mums and dads sharing their experiences of pregnancy, childbirth and becoming a parent.

For this I would like to invite as many as possible for either a morning or afternoon session. As a number of questions for this day will centre around breastfeeding I am really keen to invite as many parents on as possible, in particular those who have given birth in the last three months. Transportation and food will be provided.

We are based in London, however we will be filming at a studio in Manchester next Wednesday 15th February and also Bristol on Friday 17th February.
I would be extremely grateful if you could pass the word around.

Kindest regards,
