Childbirth Education Series
The Pampers Childbirth Education Series started out as a (not so) simple request to provide educational materials for nurses to teach new and expecting parents. This course would act as a base of knowledge to help parents know what to expect through pregnancy and post-pregnancy while also being a one stop resource for nurses who teach these classes within the hospital. After the New Parents' Guide was created, we realized that there was still work to be done in terms of video and supplementary materials.
Creative Direction • Design • Production • Digital Strategy
When laying out the design for the New Parents' Guide we wanted to make sure that this in-depth clinical information was easy to follow and visually resembled a magazine layout with its editorial style. While a majority of the images within the New Parents' Guide are stock, we were able to take the photos of women and couples in supportive positions in house. These photos required casting, wardrobe, makeup/hair, prop design and creative direction. After creating the New Parents' Guide we found that there was a greater need for supplementary videos that nurses and doctors could send to their patients that could not attend traditional childbirth education classes. These videos ended up playing a significant role during the time of COVID-19 and social distancing, especially for this high risk audience. The videos were filmed in a professional studio and required casting, wardrobe, makeup/hair, prop design, set design and creative direction.
After the full Childbirth Education Series launched there was an outpouring of support from our influencers, news outlets and consumers, with many comments encouraging other moms to participate in the online classes offered. The campaign was launched in two waves, wave one was the initial launch and wave two was a sustaining launch for Mothers Day.
