A graphic teen pregnancy video produced by an NHS trust and showing a young girl giving birth has been seen nearly 1.5 million times on the internet.
The hard-hitting video was produced by Leicester City Teenage Pregnancy and Parenthood partnership, and shows a young girl, played by an actress, giving birth on a school playing field.
The film was launched on YouTube on 14 May, and has seen its popularity increase as word spread. It has been hailed as a success nationwide, and praised for its relevance and sensible advice.
Married mum-of-two Caitlin Roslington hailed the film as 'a godsend', saying, "I've had both my daughters watch it. My husband has seen it too. Round here the NHS trusts haven't got any midwives, so it's important when our third child is born that the whole family know what to do".
The film was also praised by schoolchildren, with 13-year-old Britney-Whitney Chavette saying, "it's like really cool, yeah, and really helpful, like coz when my daughter Jordanlily is born next munf, right, if it happens at school then like my mates know the best angles to film it from on their mobiles, innit".
A followup film from the trust, showing under-16 girls their best options for an elective Caesarean, is currently in post-production and will be released to coincide with the new Harry Potter movie.
