The fly-on-the-wall documentary turns its attention away from Liverpool's mothers-to-be, instead focusing on the roles the various boyfriends, fiances, partners and husbands play in the labour suite. Super-organised Paul, a risk manager by trade, impresses midwives when he plans out every detail of his wife Nadine birthing experience, right down to the music. Meanwhile, young parents-to-be Bobbilee and Frankie, who had only known each other for a month before Bobbi became pregnant, have a much more laissez-faire attitude to labour, one which is put to the ultimate test after 48 hours at the Women's Hospital. Finally, 32-year-old mum Linda faces bringing her baby into the world without the aid of her partner Tony, whose traumatic past experience of hospitals means he won't be accompanying her to theatre.
