If this series was designed to instil confidence in mumsto-be, it fails miserably.
In the second instalment the cameras follow trainee midwives at St Mary’s Hospital in Manchester, England.
It is probably unfair to be too harsh on 18-year-old recruit Chloe, who gushes and smiles her way through the ward – afterall this is her first day. But 20-year-old Aurelie, who is stuck in second year because she can’t pass the practical tests, is clearly out of her depth. But you do have to admire the pregnant women who gave permission for the personal event to be filmed.
