Our Baby: A Modern MiracleChannel 4
This 1 x 60′ documentary follows the journey of Jake and Hannah Graf as they become Britain’s most prominent transgender parents. Jake and Hannah announced the birth of their baby, Millie, on April 16th 2020, but their path to parenthood has had some unique challenges along the way.
Filmed over a year, the documentary follows the pair as they strive to turn their dream of starting a family into a reality, using Jake’s embryos that he had frozen. As they embark on their unique experience, the couple face up to various ideas of what it means to be a parent in modern Britain. With their Belfast-based surrogate’s due date rapidly approaching and the country in lockdown, they have to race to Northern Ireland to make it in time for the birth.
