Review

The 11th series moves to Birmingham Women’s Hospital, and this opening episode displays everything that makes the show so enduringly appealing: love stories, triumph over hardship and, of course, babies.

Samantha, 25, and Tony, 29, are having their third baby, but her complex medical history, including childhood leukaemia, along with a tragic first pregnancy, means this is a fraught and frightening experience.

It’s the second baby for Rav, 44 and Sharon, 33, whose workplace fling (their first kiss was in the security cupboard) turned into something more serious. And Rhiana, 26, and Lee, 30, are having their second child; her first birth was textbook, but the second is less straightforward.


Summary

The award-winning documentary series moves to Birmingham Women's Hospital. Twenty-five-year-old Samantha and her partner Tony, who struggled for years to conceive, return to the ward after losing their first child at 25 weeks. However, Samantha's medical history means the birth is not without challenges. Meanwhile, 33-year-old Sharon and 44-year-old Rav come to the hospital expecting their second child together, and Rhiana and her partner Lee hope for another textbook water birth for the arrival of their second son.
