Documentary Makers Seek Young, Pregnant Disabled Woman For New Programme On Disability, Pregnancy And Parenthood

October 31, 2012

From an email I’ve just recieved:

The documentary my company has been commissioned to make for BBC3 is about ‘Disability, Pregnancy and Parenthood’, we aim to highlight how pregnancy and parenthood are affected by disability and the trials and challenges that disabled parents face.

We specifically would like to find a 16-28 year old woman who is pregnant at the moment and ideally giving birth in either December, January or February, although any stage of the pregnancy would be suitable. We have a very limited period of time available so we will need to identify someone within a week if possible.
The company that I work for (Special Edition Films) have produced a number of sensitive medical based documentaries on subjects including organ donation (Heart Hospital – ITV1), cystic fibrosis (Love On The Transplant List – BBC3) and treacher-collins syndrome (Love Me, Love My Face – BBC3). Naturally, we will approach this subject with the same respect and sensitivity.
If you could circulate this message on your website or any other places that you think may be relevant it would be really helpful.
