A ground-breaking look at the drama and emotion of a maternity unit, from the perspective of the parents-to-be and the maternity ward staff.
When Jody, who's 29, and Chris, who's 32, arrive at Liverpool Women's Hospital, she'll be giving birth for the first time. It's a day that they thought would never come: after a struggle with infertility, they'd given up hope of having a child themselves and adopted a son. But one last try at IVF had surprising results. Meanwhile, Mormons Cameron, who's 23, and Hannah, who's 21, met through the church and married young. Their faith has taught them the importance of family, and they can't wait to become parents. They just need to get through labour first. And Lesley, who's 41, was desperate to become a mum but couldn't find a man who wanted to be a dad. Not letting that stand in her way, she turned to a sperm donor, and is now eagerly expecting her first child, who she plans to raise alone.
This episode explores life at Liverpool Women's Hospital through the eyes of male midwife Chris, a former navy trauma medic. Like Chris, 22-year-old Kiefer knows what it's like to be a man in a woman's world. His upbringing in a strong female household has made him eager to be the ultimate birthing partner for his girlfriend Sophie. But following life-threatening complications during the birth of their first child, can Kiefer hold it together this time? Third-time mum Amanda, who's 32, arrives mid-contractions, with her sister Michelle by her side. They both hope that the birthing experience will bring them closer together. Having previously suffered a miscarriage and an ectopic pregnancy, 33-year-old Rhoanne is excited about meeting her second baby, but when he gets stuck there's a race against time to deliver him.
Samantha, who's 25, was determined not to marry into the army, but when she met military man Tony, who's 29, love blossomed. Having had leukaemia as a child, Samantha struggled for years to conceive, and heartbreakingly the couple lost their first child at 25 weeks. They return to Birmingham Women's Hospital hoping to welcome their new baby in to the world, but, with Samantha's complicated medical history, the birth isn't without challenges. Meanwhile, 44-year-old Rav didn't plan to meet someone at work.
