Stockpile the hankies: Ireland’s answer to One Born Every Minute is just as much of a tear-jerker, and new episodes are shown back to back all afternoon.

“That sounds painful!” chuckles a nurse at Cork University Maternity Hospital in the first of the new series, barely bothering to glance up from her paperwork. Next door, florid mum-to-be Trudie is beyond speech as her ashen husband mops her brow. Katherine – mother of five children under four – stops running around long enough to say she’ll buy a pet next time she feels broody.

But it’s Anita for whom your heart will really ache: she’s on her sixth pregnancy after five miscarriages.


Documentary offering an insight into the daily lives of staff and patients at Cork University Maternity Hospital. Consultant Keelin O'Donaghue monitors the progress of the pregnancy of a woman who has had five miscarriages, and a man who is a step-parent to two teenagers prepares to become a father for the first time.
