Baby SOS

An amazing new resource for hopeful parents

We’re documenting the fascinating fertility journeys of several real-life families. We’re bringing cameras into some of the most intimate experiences of becoming a parent, to help all potential parents to explore their choices, feelings and decisions. Imagine an adult show-and-tell, where real people tell you exactly what’s on their mind and show you how they’re coping, as they go through some of the most difficult & rewarding experiences of becoming a parent.

1 in 7 couples experiences the pain of infertility, and some families such as LGBTQ couples, must use less traditional ways to start a family. It’s all a bit overwhelming at first, so we’ve created these videos to show that you’re not alone, and that it’s possible to survive and thrive on the fertility journey.

Breaking taboos

Finding it hard to talk about your fertility issues? Wouldn’t it be great to see ordinary people being totally open and honest about their issues?

Feeling down or hopeless? It really helps to see the fertility rollercoaster played out to its conclusion. This journey is so much easier when you know you’re not the only one.

Finding it hard to broach the subject of adoption or surrogacy with your partner? It’s a lot easier to talk about tricky subjects when you can watch an entertaining, engaging & real-life video series about it.

An answer to isolation

One of the major issues that people on their fertility journey report, is feeling unsure, uncertain and alone on their journey. This feeling is intensifed due to COVID-19 restrictions, which prevent potential parents from meeting other families going through the same journey.

Instagram, Facebook and Tiktok are valuable platforms for fertility communities, but as we all know, social media only ever gives a two-dimensional view. Video completes this picture, by giving a sense of what people are really thinking and feeling.

Our sincere thanks to all of the amazing families and individuals, who have allowed us into their lives and fertility journeys!
