Channel 4 has announced a new documentary film following the journey of transgender parents Jake and Hannah Graf.
100 Ways to Make a Baby (w/t) follows Jake and Hannah’s path to parenthood in the year leading up to the birth of their daughter Millie on April 14th 2020.
Hannah was one of the highest-ranking transgender officers in the British Army, earning an MBE for work with LGBT army personnel. Jake is a writer, filmmaker and actor who has appeared in Collette and The Danish Girl.
Using Jake’s frozen embryos, the couple embark on a unique experience discovering what it means to be a parent in modern Britain today. With the surrogate mother’s due date fast-approaching and the country in lockdown, the couple race against the clock to make it to Northern Ireland in time for the birth.
Jake and Hannah Graf said: “When we began the nail-biting journey to parenthood, we could never have imagined the rollercoaster ride that would follow and the additional pressures and challenges that came with having our baby during a global pandemic.
“From finding our surrogate through lockdowns, C sections and struggling to register our baby, there has never been a dull moment.”
