This footage features four segments from the special report series on childbirth and motherhood for 24 Action News on Austin’s KVUE-TV. Produced by Roy Faires, the series looks at how to promote having healthy babies, from pre-conception health risks to debunking common myths to delivery methods to after-birth treatments. The series won the Public Health Award for Media Excellence, also known as PHAME, by the Texas Public Health Association. In these four segments, Faires addresses common misconceptions about what pregnant women should and should not do. Faires worked as a special project director and entertainment critic/reporter at KVUE-TV, Austin’s ABC affiliate, from 1976-1989.
