TV company seeks visually impaired mums-to-be



Award-winning TV documentary company Twenty Twenty is looking for first time mums-to-be with a visual impairment to take part in the filming of a documentary about pregnancy and parenting.
 
The series will follow a diverse range of parents-to-be who may have some additional needs or face challenges when having their first child.
 
The company is seeking women who are expecting their first child between June and October 2013. In addition to visually impaired expectant mothers, they also want to hear from pregnant women with mobility issues, a physical disability or restricted growth. 
 
Harriet Matthews, assistant producer for Twenty Twenty, told OT: “We want the series to challenge misconceptions and celebrate triumphs and capabilities, as well as reflecting the day to day realities of parenting.
 
“At this stage we’d just like to have informal chats with women who are currently pregnant with their first child. We can tell them more about Twenty Twenty and the series and what it would entail if they were to get involved in the series. All calls are informal with absolutely no obligation to take part.”
