The next instalment of Channel 4’s BAFTA-award winning documentary series, One Born Every Minute, will return for a seventh series in 2015. Over 150 babies have been born on camera since One Born Every Minute first aired in 2010.
The new series will be filmed in one of only two hospitals in the UK dedicated to the care and treatment of women and their families; Liverpool Women’s Hospital. It is the largest hospital of its kind in Europe and is a nationally recognised Centre of Excellence, boasting some of the most respected clinicians in their field. Previous series of One Born Every Minute have been filmed in Bristol, Southampton and Leeds.
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 remotely-operated cameras, filming 24 hours a day over a 7 week period.
Filming from the reception desk to the neo-natal ward; from the operating theatre to the birthing pool, this ground-breaking and tender series captures the beginning of life as it really happens. It 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.
