    Hello,

    I work for a television company called Mentorn Media. We’re making a series about underage teenage pregnancy and I’m really keen to hear your story.

    The tv programmes will follow both mum’s-to-be through pregnancy and birth, as well as those who have recently given birth. It's not about making judgments – it’s about telling the real stories of teenagers who are pregnant and hearing about your experiences in your words. We want to prove it’s not all Vicky Pollard!

    We’d really like to hear from you as we’re looking for a mix of teenage mums-to-be from a variety of different backgrounds.

    If this sounds interesting then please drop me a line on here or email [email protected]

    Look forward to hearing from you.

    Thanks,
    Sophie

    Hi Nicole,

    Thank you for your message. As we are filming a observational documentary we are unable to pay contributors to take part.

    If you are interested in being involved or finding out more information please feel free to drop me an email on [email protected]

    Kind regards,
    Sophie

    Hi Leanne,

    Thanks for getting in touch. In the series we are making we are focusing on telling the stories of girls who are under 16 and pregnant or have recently given birth.

    This series is funded by BBC Learning and as well as being on BBC3 it will also be shown in schools to boys and girls who are under 16 as a way of educating young people about what the experience is like.

    We are still looking for people to take part in the program so if you are pregnant (or you know someone who is) and would be interested in hearing more, please get in contact. You can send me a message on here, or to [email protected]


    Many thanks,
    Sophie
