Reborns: Making Mothers of Fake Babies

"My Fake Baby explores the lives of women who spend hundreds, sometimes thousands of pounds on lifelike baby dolls known as 'reborns'. Some have beating hearts and tiny veins. They are loved like real babies, cuddled and taken for walks. Doll designer Jaime [Eaton]–a mother of four–fulfils the dreams of other women by engineering babies to their specifications in her front room. Adoptive 'mothers' include women whose children have grown up and left home and women unable to have children of their own. It would be easy to dismiss all this as sad, strange and just plain wrong, but it gives great comfort to those involved."
(David Chater, The Times, UK)

[UK Channel 4 TV series 'My Fake Baby', approx. 45 min., Director: Victoria Silver, broadcast: Wed 2 Jan 2008 22:00]
