If you delivered pre-term

I rec'd this in an email this morning:

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

Engine Pictures is producing a TV Public Service Announcement for the NIH?s
Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human
Development to communicate the risks of pre-term delivery, and to prompt
pregnant women considering elective pre-term delivery to consider a simple
question: is it worth it?

We plan on interviewing a doctor from the NIH along with a mother who
delivered pre-term whose child might have developed respiratory distress
syndrome, infection, cerebral palsy, vision or hearing loss, or other
developmental disabilities relating to pre-term delivery. If you know of a
mom in the DC/Baltimore area who falls into this category and who would be
willing to share her experience on-camera so that other moms could benefit
please let me know, and/or please pass this note on to others.

Ideally, we?ll schedule the interview for the week of August 15 or August
22. We?ll need a maximum of a couple of hours and would prefer to interview
the mom in her own home, but we?re prepared to provide the location if it?s
more convenient. Thanks!

Re: If you delivered pre-term

  • Hi,

       I'm the mom of a 32- weeker who had heart problems as a result of her early birth.  It was NOT elective.  I wouldn't want to be interviewed for tv, yikes, that's scary.  But I thought I would share that when i was in the hospital, and still I found the local group Preemies Today to be helpful. http://www.preemiestoday.com/

    They may be able to work with you to find a mom who would be willing to talk to you.
