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. They both hope the birthing experience will bring them closer together.

Thirty-five-year-old career woman Charlene is struggling to comes to terms with the fact that she's about to become a mum, after dedicating her life to climbing the career ladder. Charlene's mum Marion and Aunt Bev use Liverpudlian humour to help her through the final stages of labour. Jess, who's 21, fell pregnant after a short fling and only truly believed the news when she saw her first scan. She hopes that with help from her flatmate Lauren, who's at her bedside, she can learn to become the best mum possible. And Sam, who's 41, swore she'd never have another child after having a traumatic birth with her first child, but when she lost her own mum she re-thought plans.

After giving up on men, 34-year-old beautician Maria unexpectedly fell for her builder, David. Life's plan seems to finally be coming together, but some worrying news about their unborn baby puts their life on hold. Meanwhile, sometimes opposites really do attract, like perfect prefect Ruby and teenage rebel Colin. After the birth of their first child, their opposing personalities were put to the test when 26-year-old doctor Ruby suffered with post-natal depression. As they wait for the arrival of their second child, will it be Ruby's hard working ethos or Colin's jokey ways that help get them through? And, with a third baby on the way, 34-year-old Gary is proud to be raising a family of his own with his partner Louise, on the estate he grew up to love.

Cathryn and Dean became best friends after meeting at a fracture clinic. Six years on, their relationship has taken an unexpected twist. And both Mandy and Melvyn were born unable to hear.
