  1. Great news. Apart from watching someone’s personal birth video, this is the definitive educational show of the realities of childbirth. It doesn’t shy away from the hours of boredom (in birth, not in the show) and the stop-start nature of labour.

    The fake portrayal of birth on drama shows has much to answer for. Nice to have a show to recommend to women who want to know what it is really like.

  2. I’ve been waiting for this…been growing board of the re-runs of the UK version. Really wanted to hear about the Aussies first – then we might be able to do the repeats.
