Could you get involved in a documentary about maternity provision and safe childbirth in Britain?

The Birth Trauma Association has posted the following message on the Facebook group:

A major documentary maker is filming a documentary about maternity provision and safe childbirth in Britain. Part of the programme will include cases of neonatal deaths and stillbirth, maternal deaths and baby brain injury that have occurred since 2007 due to hospital negligence. They would like to hear from families who would be willing to share their experiences of this and who might want to take part.

They appreciate this is an extremely sensitive subject, and all correspondence and initial discussions will be treated confidentially with no obligation to be involved.

If you would like to discuss the programme in greater detail, you can contact them on 0208 008 1022 or via email at

Even though they cannot use the experiences of everyone they speak to in the final film, every family they talk to is a great help towards the research in making a programme that is factually correct and informative.

Do you think you could be a part of this? If you can help in any way, please get in touch.

In the meantime, there is still time to vote for me in the MADs blog awards. This week I have been interviewed by the Bolton News, so Maternity Matters and I are hoping that we will be able to raise awareness of birth trauma even more this week!
