Filmed over 2 years at UCLH and Addenbrookes Hospital, Child of Mine sensitively follows three couples through their personal journeys of losing a child before birth. The UK has one of the highest rates of stillbirth in the developed world, yet these hidden bereavements are rarely talked about, often leaving parents isolated and alone.
Child of Mine brings this tragic topic into the heart of public discourse by shining a light on the hidden crisis of stillbirth in the UK.
Narrated by Amanda Holden, the film has been made by multi-BAFTA winning documentary maker True Vision, exec. produced by Brian Woods, and filmed and directed by Katie Rice.
DocDays screening: This DocDays screening will be followed by a discussion chaired by Amanda Holden, with the director, Katie Rice; Fiona and Nial, one of the couples from the film; bereavement counsellor, Karen Burgess; and UCLH Obstetrician, Dr Melissa Whitten. Monday 8 October 6.45pm, Curzon Soho.
