Keep Calm and Carry On - First Episode

Television (Full Length Episode) – 2012

In this 2012 series, media personality Jaquie Brown chronicles a year as a young mother, as she raises her first child Leo. With a single rule — not to offer advice — Brown aimed to document honestly the realities of modern parenting. This first episode looks at everything from worrying nipple advice to installing car seats, from the pelvic floor to the post-baby body. Brown's candid reflections (captured in video diary 'Little Brother') are mixed with experts (Plunket nurses, baby whisperers), and a look at Kiwi child-rearing social history. The show was produced by JAM TV for TV One.

We all go through these things but often we don’t talk about them … I’d love it if it did prompt people to talk about these things.
– Jaquie Brown on tackling the realities of pregnancy and parenthood, The Australian Women’s Weekly (NZ edition), 4 September 2012
