Every minute of every day, a baby is born in Britain. One Born Every Minute celebrates what it really feels like to become a parent, by taking a bustling maternity hospital and filling it with forty cameras. Filming from the reception desk to the neo-natal ward; from the operating theatre to the birthing pool, this ground-breaking and tender new series observes the dramatic, emotional and often funny moments that go hand in hand with bringing a new life into the world, from the perspective of the soon-to-be parents and family, as well as the hospital staff.

S01E01 Episode 1 09/02/2010 Tracy is 37 years old and is in labour with her fourth child. Accompanied by her husband Steve - who is in a jovial mood - and her middle son Liam, who’s 18, Tracy is calm and upbeat about her labour until the heart rate of her baby slows and the midwife needs to deliver her baby quickly. Suddenly the humour of the situation is gone, Tracy is exhausted and a much more serious Steve becomes the labour coach as the midwife races to get the baby out. As the staff cope with an increasingly busy shift, 22-year-old Lisa is also in labour, with her first child. Despite the calm words of the midwife, Lisa’s nervousness quickly turns to fear when she learns the baby must be delivered by caesarean section. As she is taken into theatre to give birth, Lisa and her partner are told that once their baby is born it will be taken immediately to an incubator. The first few days of its life are going to be critical.
S01E02 Episode 2 16/02/2010 Sam is in labour with her first child and is finding the pain too much to bear. Her boyfriend Ed, mum and the midwife team are doing everything they can to make her more comfortable, but she becomes increasingly upset. Ed is feeling the pressure too: he knows he has some real responsibilities to face once the baby is born and is worried about their finances. When the doctor decides that Sam needs a Caesarean, Ed’s nerves get the better of him and, although he wants to be with Sam in theatre, he decides her mum will be of more help. Another mum-to-be, Joy, is bored as she waits to go into labour. A diabetic, she has been induced but has been in hospital for four days and it’s a slow process. She’s hungry, tired and sick of waiting, and her frustration is heightened when her lunch doesn’t arrive on time. The idea of a piece of chocolate cheers her up although her husband Fabio would prefer she had a banana. Conversation turns to their garden, which distracts Joy for a bit, but she is soon feeling frustrated again and starts to wonder whether motherhood really is for her. ‘I love my independence’, she says. Meanwhile, Sister Kay Duggan - one of the midwives - is pondering her career after learning that she delivered Ed many years earlier. ‘There are many moments of pure joy in midwifery and many moments of absolute stress… I find work is the most important part of my life’.
S01E03 Episode 3 23/02/2010 Lisa’s baby Jack has been born with his bowel outside his body. The first few days of his life are critical as he faces serious medical procedures. Lisa is forced to cope with waiting weeks before she can take him home, and confesses to feeling jealous of the nurses who are feeding him before she can even hold him. Meanwhile, Sarah is expecting her second child. Midwife Dominique does everything she can to make sure she can have the natural birth she always wanted. Sarah’s first labour was very difficult and she had to have a caesarean. But as she finally goes into labour and the hours start to drag by, Sarah and dad Darren begin to worry that it will be the same as last time, and Darren feels impotent, thinking that no-one’s listening to him and there’s no point in him being there. And 25-year-old Andreia comes in to the hospital for a water birth, with the cameras catching her baby’s breathtaking entrance to the world
S01E04 Episode 4 02/03/2010 Kelly comes in to have her fifth baby, while Joy is waiting to have her first. Babies have always come easily for Kelly: her last one was delivered three minutes after her waters broke. Joy, on the other hand, has had to undergo five years of IVF, and after days of waiting in hospital, there’s still no sign of Baby. Joy and her husband Fabio have been together for 20 years since they met at language college, where they were both studying English. Fabio says: “We have achieved a lot in these last 20 years together, but once you have material things they don’t really mean much to you any more. Without family it loses its meaning.” But, although Joy’s having contractions, she is dilating very slowly, and it doesn’t look like her waters are ready to break naturally. And although Joy wants to have a natural birth, it looks like she’ll eventually have to decide whether to have a caesarean. At least the long wait gives them a chance to try and agree on names for their long-awaited baby… Meanwhile, Kelly has brought her husband Jon, her mum Liz and her sister Lisa into the birthing room with her. Kelly and Lisa’s brother died recently, and Lisa says: “Because the pregnancy was a wonderful distraction it became a focus for the whole family, and probably helped us to work through our emotions.” Midwife Lorraine, who’s new to the hospital, where she’s yet to deliver a baby, is looking after Kelly, who certainly knows what she wants: gas and air, and plenty of it…
S01E05 Episode 5 09/03/2010 In this episode, two young mums-to-be come in to the hospital at the end of unexpected pregnancies. And for their mothers it’s time to let go of their daughters. Abbie and Ross are both 17 and have been together for three years. Abbie says: “We were careful, but things happen, and things happen for a reason.” Her mum Donna, an ambulance technician, has delivered 15 babies, but that can’t prepare her for the emotional wrench of her baby having a baby. As Donna says: “She’s not my little girl any more. She’s going to be somebody’s mummy.” Twenty-three-year-old self-confessed free spirit Leoni had only been with her baby’s father for a short time when she fell pregnant. She only wanted to be a mother if she could be there for her child. With the support of her family, she decided to go through with the pregnancy. But Leoni is eight days overdue and her pregnancy isn’t progressing. And the hospital staff are worried about the baby’s heartbeat before Leoni’s even in labour.
S01E06 Episode 6 16/03/2010 In this episode, two mothers are about to give birth to their first babies while two fathers are trying to work out their role in the birthing process. For Shelagh’s baby son it is a dramatic start with an ambulance journey to the hospital and a quick turn around caesarean when his heart rate dips during labour. The birth is very poignant for Richard as Shelagh is having another man’s baby, having fallen pregnant during a break in their relationship. It’s not what he had planned for their relationship but he is determined to be the best dad he can be after a career in the army meant he was not always around for his own children. Penny is also excited about her new arrival but when labour starts her husband Ben finds it difficult to see her in so much pain. They have deliberately avoided finding out the sex of the baby and a special moment ensues when the baby arrives. Meanwhile, the midwives on the night shift are reminiscing over the extraordinary and wonderful births they have been part of over the years.

Boyfriend Phil was at first reluctant to be a dad – he lived a party lifestyle and initially felt sad about saying goodbye to it. When the baby is due to arrive, Lydia’s squeamish elder sister Anna joins her and Phil in the birthing room. Soon, one of the women begins to feel nauseous, and it’s not the one you would expect.

S04E08 Episode 8 20/02/2013 Two couples prove that unplanned pregnancies can happen at very different ages. Andy, who's 41, and Nina, who's 39, thought they'd left nappies and sleepless nights behind long ago. With their children Danielle, who's 14, and Lewis, who's 10, becoming increasingly independent, they'd just started to get their own lives back again: going out, holidaying and enjoying life. They all got the shock of their lives when Nina announced she was pregnant with twins. The kids were initially appalled that their parents could be so irresponsible but soon embrace the idea of baby siblings and cheer their mum up with fun and games while she waits for her Caesarean. Jonathan, who's 21, met 18-year-old Laura when he randomly sent her a message on a social networking site. Three months later she fell pregnant. While Laura panicked, Jonathan was delighted: starting a family has been his sole ambition since the age of ten.

Gail Wright, Leeds General Infirmary's most experienced midwife and Head of Delivery, is on hand to help Keely when she goes into labour and get her through the pain barrier. Katie (27) says she is the grown up in the relationship and her fiancé Steve (29) is like a child. In the delivery suite, Steve is on form constantly mucking about and generally driving Katie up the wall. His jokes mask their shared anxiety about their baby's congenital condition called gastroschisis which means the baby will be born with its intestines on the outside of its abdominal wall and will require surgery a few hours later.
S04E10 Episode 10 06/03/2013 Leah is having her sixth baby but unfortunately her partner is in prison and will miss the birth. Meanwhile, Becky met Police Sergeant John one Halloween when he was dressed as a witch and it was love at first sight.

Becky's life had been ruled by depression and a string of failed relationships, and she was beginning to think she'd never be a mum. By the time they arrive on the labour ward, Becky and John know exactly what to expect. They've been to all the classes and planned their active birth and are desperate to meet baby Luke, who they're naming after their Star Wars hero. Sophie and Martin are best friends whose drunken kiss blossomed into a five-year relationship and a surprise pregnancy. While it's Sophie's first child, Martin has been through it all before and has an eight-year-old daughter from a previous relationship. Sophie's desperate for them to have a baby of their own to bring them closer together and to experience the love of being someone's natural mum.

Fortunately, Martin's experience and sense of humour are there to support Sophie through a long and difficult labour.
S04E11 Episode 11 13/03/2013 Naomi, who's 32, and Jason, who's 37, have known each other since they were teenagers and have had an on-off relationship over the years. Now that Naomi is pregnant, Jason says it's changed their relationship and they're committed to a stable partnership. But there's another woman in Naomi's life: her mother Maria, who Naomi describes as a 'goddess' and who lives next door to Naomi. Being glamorous is very important to Naomi and she arrives to give birth wearing false eyelashes and full make-up. Meanwhile, Bianca discovered she was pregnant a couple of days after her 22nd birthday and was 'gobsmacked'. She wasn't sure whether to carry on having fun or settle down but finally decided to buck her ideas up and have the baby even though the father wouldn't be involved. Her sister Tanya says Bianca won't be a single mum because she'll have her to help. And Shannon met Dale on a Saturday night out in Leeds. They were both 17 when Shannon told people they were having a baby. She remembers that 'people said we were too young and it wouldn't work' but she and Dale are happy together, although Shannon has some regrets about not going to university and Dale says he wants to join the navy in five years.
S04E12 Episode 12 20/03/2013 Dawn, who experienced a traumatic birth when her first child arrived in the last series of One Born Every Minute, returns to have a second baby, with the memories of her difficult time in the same Leeds operating theatre still fresh in her mind. Kirri, who’s 29, met 30-year-old Brendan when they were both working at Butlins. She says ‘all women have a plan’; hers was to get a job at Butlins in order to find a man. Nine years later she and Brendan are having their second child and are still very much in love. They have such a light-hearted approach to life that Kirri manages without pain relief and laughs her way through her contractions. Shannon, who’s 34 and from Detroit, fell in love with England as a teenager when she started reading biographies of The Beatles. When she met Chris, who’s 51 and from Doncaster, on the internet, her father – a Vietnam veteran and former marine – hired private detectives to check Chris out. Chris must have got the all-clear because they are now married and having their second child. But they’re worried that Chris may miss the birth because they don’t have any family nearby and have no one else to look after their 20-month-old daughter Celia while Mum is in labour.
