How do I prepare my child for an X-ray?

When your child needs to have an X-ray to look at their chest or bones, it can be helpful to prepare them through pretend play. This video shows how you could play with your child the day or morning before you go to hospital. Dad and Oscar use a cake and chocolate buttons to play pretend X-ray. This video with pretend hospital play is aimed at younger children and those at an early stage of development.
