I've always adored Anne Geddes photographs of newborn babies - the photographs are innovative, compelling and unusual. Anne has now turned her wonderful talent to photographing pregnant women and the results are amazing. These pregnancy photographs are combined with women's stories of pregnancy, birth and parenting in "My Pregnancy, A Woman's Story" a heart-warming and compelling quarterly magazine. The magazine is high quality, beautifully presented and makes the perfect gift. I thoroughly enjoyed looking at the photos and reading the women's stories.
Some of the women's stories are joyful and others heartrending. One of the most astonishing stories in the series is triplets who were all pregnant at the same time and all gave birth to sons, two of them on the same day. One couple face the most tragic event of having a stillborn baby three days before the due date. At nearly forty years of age, a first time pregnant mother discovers she has breast cancer shortly after conception, undergoes treatment and gives birth a healthy baby.
My Pregnancy: A Women's Story is available from newsagents from 8th October 2012.
The magazine will pair with "My Pregnancy" a six episode series which will air on Channel 7TWO on Saturdays at 4.30pm from October 8 with repeats the following Mondays at 2.30pm. Each episode will be introduced by Anne Geddes set to exclusive behind-the-scenes footage from her studio. Here is a glimpse from YouTube about the series.

Have only just discovered about the tv series. As it is now 10th Nov seems I have missed most of the series which started on 8th Oct. Is it available to buy on dvd or view anywhere on the internet. I've had a look on Freeview 7Two but it doesn't appear to be on there.
Hope to be able to watch this series.

Hi Joanne - I am not sure if the series is available on DVD yet. Why don't you contact www.annegeddes.com to see if they are offering the series on DVD.
