Project Management: The Baby Project

Lucy Peck

Lucy Peck was one of nine moms who participated in NPR’s The Baby Project. She is seen here with her newborn son Dexter.

The Baby Project was a a three-month special blog on NPR that followed nine women through the last trimester of their pregnancy. I was a co-creator of the project, and worked as one of the three blog hosts. During the course of the project, both myself and another of the producers became pregnant. At that point, the project took on greater meaning — it was personal, meaningful, and truly transformational.
