VUMC Subject of New TV Series

Once again Vanderbilt University Medical Center has been chosen as the subject of a new health care reality TV series scheduled to make its broadcast debut on a cable network this spring. The series, titled Baby’s First Day, was produced by New York-based True Entertainment.  It is a brand new effort for a daytime programming lineup and will tell positive stories about mothers and their newborn babies.

Participating faculty and staff from the Department of Obstetrics & Gynecology, Center for Women’s Health, faculty and staff with the Vanderbilt University School of Nursing’s Nurse-Midwifery Practice, Department of Pediatrics and the Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt, along with their patients are the subjects of this new series.

Filming for the project took place from September 2010 through January 2011 at VUMC’s Labor and Delivery Department, Children’s Hospital, the Women’s Center at One Hundred Oaks and the West End Nurse-Midwifery Practice.

The entire first season of Baby’s First Day, which will consist of 26 half-hour episodes, was filmed at VUMC. As of press time, the series’ first episodes were planned to debut sometime in May.
