Does your antenatal group meet on a Weds and would you like to be on Sky News talking about the swine flu vaccine?

Sky are looking for a group of, ideally pregnant, women to chat to them on Weds about their feelings about the vaccine.

If you think you might be interested in taking part please email robert.owers@bskyb.com

"Sky News want to film pregnant women talking about swine flu"

That's a fairly niche fetish tbh. You need to bung in some stilettos or some nipple clamps if you want to compete with BBC News.

Am sure that could be arranged Ghostwriter wink

Here's background on what they want from email:

"I work as the health producer for Sky News and we're working on a report to be aired on Thursday about the upcoming swine flu vaccination programme. There is a lot of discussion on internet forums such as Mumsnet.com about parents' fears about the vaccines, and confusion over how and when it will be administered, and who will be first in line.

We're interested in looking into some of the concerns raised by parents and pregnant women about the vaccines, and then taking their questions to independent experts to answer those questions.

Ideally we'd like to meet with a couple of pregnant women, or a mix of pregnant and other mumsnet users to film them chatting about their concerns over coffee etc and then we'll put the fears/concerns to scientists and doctors.

We would say they met on mumsnet/use mumsnet or mention the mumsnet survey as part of the report."

Just so you know the background. If you want to volunteer email robert.owers@bskyb.com, but do let us know as well so we can look out for you on the telly!

Thanks

We're still looking to speak to any pregnant mums - whether they are perfectly happy to have the jab when it comes available, or are a little concerned and would need more reassuring before accepting the the vaccination. We can be totally flexible with timings, so if any mums-to-be, (you don't have to be part of an antenatal group), would be able to spare us half an hour for us to come and talk to you about this issue please email me at robert.owers@bskyb.com or you can ring me on 07725736691. Thanks very much!
Rob, Sky News Health Producer
