Re: [LondonOpenCoffee] Virtual Reality opportunity for good
I run the London Happy Start Up monthly Meetup group. Over the 18 months that I have been the custodian of this get together I have seen plenty of Start Up ideas.
The one I am about to share is not really an ask of the group but more a unique offer and a chance to do good.
Best to all and always happy to pay it forward where possible. Peter
Please see the following text from the founder, Sam:
I would like your help in my mission to show the world what positive birth looks like:
Do you know any pregnant women who want to have their births filmed, and might be up for filming in virtual reality, rather than boring old 2 dimensions, for free? Please send them in my direction: [hidden email]
I am making a virtual reality film of births to help people see how wonderful and empowering child birth can be – I think if people see (rather than are just told) that others are having a good time, they will expect the same for themselves. I am a mum who went from being terrified to having a positive experience, so I know it’s possible!
I think this could help to burst some myths and ease a few fears, maybe even help reduce the postnatal anxiety, depression and traumatic stress epidemic that is effecting new mums and dads.
