One Born Every Minute
Radio Times
Review by:
David Butcher

Some of the best parts of this series come from casual exchanges between the hospital
staff. Tonight they range from a thoughtful discussion of praline chocolates to a monologue about hemming trousers (quite like stitching up patients, apparently.)

But more importantly there are the touching stories about expectant couples. Sarah’s pregnancy has been stressful because she previously had a stillborn baby at 22 weeks. “Until it’s happened, I won’t believe it,” she says (though she and her partner, rugby fans, have bought Leeds Rhino shirts for the baby). Meanwhile, hairdresser Natalie’s labour is beginning and she’s sucking hard on the gas and air. “That’s just the start,” her mum tells her helpfully. “This is still the easy bit.”

About this programme

8/14. Sarah Sanderson is nervous about giving birth following a pregnancy that ended with a stillbirth, and her anxieties are increased when her baby is found to be lying sideways, causing complications for an easy natural birth, and she begins to haemorrhage. Natalie runs a hair salon with husband Anthony, and is relaxed about going into labour, but her mother Brenda, who once had a stillborn child, is much more anxious.
