Minding the Baby

Minding the Baby

DVD2005 15 Minutes

Animated film helping people to cope with new babies.

The birth of a baby will change its parents’ relationship completely. Nothing can fully prepare people for the birth of a baby. However, this animated film shows the kinds of changes that can happen, and helps the adults involved to understand each other’s experience.

There can be problems around money and identity, especially if one has to give up paid work, and they may have different ideas of childcare. In a humorous and positive way it shows the fears, joys and misunderstandings of five couples from different backgrounds as they plan, expect and start to live with their babies, and suggests ways to improve communication.

A 12 page discussion booklet accompanies this film. It contains further information and suggestions.
