Pregnancy and Eating Disorders

I work for a television production company based in the UK. We are currently making a documentary for ITV1 exploring the issues surrounding pregnancy and eating disorders. The film will be a thoughtful and insightful look into this extremely sensitive subject.

We’re in the research stage of our production and very keen to chat to women who are, or have been, pregnant whilst having an eating disorder.

If you’re interested in having a chat or finding out more about our documentary, it would be really great to hear from you. All communication would be in complete confidence.

Top Toys for Christmas 2008

Top Toys for Christmas 2008

Cupcake Maker

The toys predicted to dominate children’s Christmas lists this year are set to ignite dreams of stage and screen fame, says the Toy Retailers Association (TRA) today. The TRA’s annual ‘Dream Toys’ list, the only official prediction of Christmas bestsellers, reveals a trend towards music, film and TV inspired toys to indulge fame fantasies from the next generation of rockstars and screen heroes. Plenty of old favourites also make a comeback this year, reflecting the nation’s love for nostalgic characters and brands.

St Johns Wort and Pregnancy

I’m a researcher working for the BBC Science department.  I’m currently looking to talk to people who may have tried St Johns Wort, the herbal remedy.  I wanted to find people who feel that St Johns Wort interferred with their contraceptive pill and could have led to them falling pregnant.
