Charlotte Bailey a third year student from Nottingham Trent University studying Broadcast Journalism would like to talk to anyone who has donated eggs or is thinking about donating. Charlotte says ‘I have just started my final year in which I am required to create an 8-10 minute documentary for TV, to hand in as part of my dissertation’.
‘I have decided to focus my documentary on egg donation for IVF. I have been researching this topic for several months now and during this time my knowledge and interest in the subject has greatly increased. I particularly wish to focus on the reasons why women donate their eggs and whether the increase in expenses that women can now receive, has persuaded more women to donate’.
‘I am hoping to speak to someone who has donated their eggs to find out the reasons why they donate, for example whether it is for altruistic or financial reasons. I also wish to talk to a couple who have conceived a child or who are currently undergoing IVF to learn about the emotional side of the procedure and what it has meant to them’.
‘If anyone would be willing to speak to me and be filmed for my documentary, I would be more than happy to meet with you beforehand. I understand that this is an extremely sensitive issue and a very private period of your lives, therefore, I want you to feel comfortable talking to me about your experience. I am planning on filming the documentary between January and April next year, during this time I will probably visit you on 3-4 occasions for filming’.
Please feel free to contact Charlotte at Charlotte.email@example.com or Pride Angel if you wish to know any more about what it is about or if you wish to be involved in the documentary.
