Episode 5: One Born Every Minute

Summary

Three more sets of parents-to-be arrive at Liverpool Women's Hospital to welcome new additions to their families, including 29-year-old Kate and her 32-year-old husband Pete, whose short-term memory was damaged following a hard-fought battle against meningitis and encephalitis 10 years earlier. The pair hope Pete's brain injury will not stop him from being able to recall this memorable moment in the future. Also featured is third-time mother Lisa, whose previous two labours only lasted six and four hours respectively, and former drama school student Hayley, who already has children with her other-half Stephen, and has resolved to appreciate every moment with her family after losing her own mother at an early age.

Review

Rating: 3 out of 5.

As the couples here face pivotal moments in their lives, the midwives of Liverpool Women’s Hospital’s recount their own. What would they change if they could? “Nothing,” says Delia. “It all got me where I am today, and I like where I am today.”

Hayley would probably agree. Though her mum died when Hayley was just nine, the loss made her appreciate her own family all the more. Look out for husband Stephen’s commentary of the birth of their daughter: “She’s all slimy. She’s got eyes!”

And Pete’s life changed ten years ago, when meningitis left him in a coma. Memory problems mean he can’t remember his sons being born, which makes the arrival of his first child with wife Kate all the more special.
