Every parent wants to have a healthy, happy baby. But every year, thousands of parents have to confront the reality of what happens when a birth goes wrong.

Baby Hospital is an emotional and heart-wrenching journey inside the world of the Liverpool Women’s Hospital, the largest obstetric and neo-natal unit in the country.

We follow the highly-specialised work involved in saving often tiny babies; how babies are ‘plumbed in’ to life support systems using the remains of the umbilical cord…the cord that once linked them to their mothers, inside the womb. But we also discover what cutting edge medicine can and cannot achieve.
