One Born Every Minute

This hugely popular, BAFTA award-winning format features the extraordinary highs and lows of the day-to-day life in a maternity hospital – where every minute of every hour a baby is born. But no birth story is ever the same. With genre-defining production values and filming for 24 hours a day, One Born Every Minute marks an evolution in the field of reality and documentary television.

As ever, the human stories rise above everything else. The relationships between mothers and their partners, and the enduring emotional power of the moment when new life begins are captured in intimate detail. From the reception desk to the labour ward, from the operating theatre to the birthing pool, we observe the dramatic, emotional and often funny moments that go hand-in-hand with bringing a baby into the world, all shown from the perspective of the soon-to-be parents and family, as well as the hospital staff.
