The UKTV Original, made by Firecracker Films, follows Emma as she trains for three months on a busy maternity ward as a Maternity Care Assistant. She'll be working four shifts a week: day and night; alongside the nursing staff, where she'll discover first-hand what makes it one of the toughest, but most rewarding careers you can have.
Today is her first day, and once Emma is given her uniform and ID card she realises just what she's let herself in for. After a brief tour of the ward, Emma is put straight to work; making tea, cleaning rooms and learning how to do baby checks.
Three days in to life as a Maternity Care Assistant, and Emma has yet to see a birth, but that could be about to change when she meets company director Laura who is expecting her second child. Laura goes in to labour, but not until after Emma's shift finishes and Emma has to come to terms with missing the birth.
Two weeks in to her role as a Maternity Care Assistant, Emma has yet to see a natural birth in the hospital, but she's hoping second time mother Carly will be her first. Five days later, Carly is still waiting to give birth.
Emma meets Michelle who is 33 weeks pregnant with her second child. Michelle has been in and out of hospital for the past month, suffering with heavy bleeding. If she continues to have bleeds, doctors will need to deliver her baby prematurely.
