I have a few more requests from the media that I'm passing along. Thanks once again to all of you who are sharing your thoughts on UC!
From Emily Kidner, a producer with GMTV:
Have you had a child in the past couple of years? Did you decide to have the pregnancy and birth unassisted? If the answers are yes we'd like to hear from you.
GMTV the British national breakfast TV show (the British equivalent to Good Morning America) is talking about unassisted childbirth and are looking for a couple to talk about their experiences. We would be able to conduct the interview down the line from most major cities in America. If you could send a daytime and home contact number and e-mail address we will be able to contact you. The programme is being broadcast on Tuesday 19th June.
From Alice Sharpe, a researcher with Firecracker Films:
I work for a TV production company based in London, England, and am currently researching a potential new documentary about freebirthing in the UK. I'm looking to get in contact with pregnant women based in both the US and UK who are preparing for an unassisted birth and/or have freebirthed in the past.
Ideally, this observational documentary would follow the women during their pregnancies - how to they feel about going it alone? Relaxed? Excited? Scared? Are their friends and family supportive or concerned? What are their reasons for choosing an unassisted pregnancy?
If any of the above applies to you or anyone you know then I'd love to hear from you, even if it's just to chat!

UCer's in the Denver/Boulder area - in the next few days I'm going to be interviewed by a producer from Associated Press Television. She is also hoping to interview other couples in this area who are either planning or have had UC's. If you're interested in being interviewed please contact me ASAP! Thanks!
