Newham based Dr. Guddi Singh is presenting a three part BBC TV show at the end of the month called 'Babies: Their Wonderful World.' The show takes a look at the science and psychology behind some of the key developmental milestones in the first two years of life. 

'It is part of one of the biggest studies on baby development ever done, and it brings together the latest findings of early brain development across the field. It was a huge project, drawing in hundreds of babies as well as researchers from all over the world. Recreating the science for the show was a real challenge! As a clinician, my role is to help communicate the science to the public. Hopefully, you will find it interesting and eye-opening - as well entertaining!' said Guddi.

Dozens of families from across the country took part in the making of the show. 'Science has made such massive progress in the study of the human brain in recent years, and more is being revealed every day. This is a genuinely important time to be working in this area of scientific research', explained Guddi.

Guddi finds a lot of fulfilment in her role as a full time doctor of paediatric medicine. ‘As part of the East London Foundation Trust’s Community Health Service in Newham a lot of my work centres on working with children who might be coping with disruptions in their development. That could be in terms of autism, downs syndrome, muscular dystrophy or cerebral palsy, to name just a few. It is hugely rewarding role and I am very lucky to work with an amazing team of staff.’

The first part of Babies, Their Wonderful World' airs on BBC TV at 9pm on Monday 26th November.
