Documentary Maker Looking For Plus-Size Pregnant Ladies

Hi all, I’ve had yet another request from a documentary maker for plus-size pregnant women to feature in a programme!

As always, I have no affiliation with the production company and have not seen their previous work so cannot vouch for them, you would need to do your own research about whether or not you’d like to be involved.

Here’s the blurb I’ve been sent:

Are you expecting a baby? Is there such a thing as a ‘straight forward’ or ‘easy’ pregnancy? Do you think you’re having – or you’re likely to have- an exceptionally interesting pregnancy?

Curve Media have been commissioned by Discovery to make a second series of 6 x 60 minute episodes on the subject of pregnancy called “My Extraordinary Pregnancy”.

We’re looking for mums-to-be from all over the world, who are juggling the usual excitement and anxiety of a typical pregnancy, with an unusual situation or condition.

Something we would love to cover in the series are the antenatal differences in care for plus size Mothers. Have you been advised to lose weight during your pregnancy? Or is being plus size allowing you to have a pregnancy that you are comfortable with?  

We want to explore the realities – the highs and lows, the excitement and the inevitable anxieties that being an extraordinary pregnant mum brings, and help you share your pregnancy story.

If you’d be interested in an informal chat with a member of the My Extraordinary Pregnancy production team, please email us at

or call 020 3179 0099 – we’d love to talk to you.

(And of course – congratulations on your pregnancy!)

Please note: We will use and store the personal details contained in your email and any further response, in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998, for the sole purpose of producing the programme.

Plus-size, pregnant and proud?

Would you like to share your pregnancy experiences with others in a TV documentary?

Barcroft Media

Barcroft Productions is looking for pregnant women with high BMI to take part in an observational documentary following the final weeks of their pregnancy.

If this applies to you, and you think you might be interested, please contact Claudia Guerrette at Barcroft as soon as possible to discuss further or to ask more questions about the production.

In case anyone is wondering, Big Birtha doesn’t have any connection to the documentary makers or the production, other than being approached to participate. So I can’t give any assurances on the likely editorial nature.
