About The Midwives:

Modern women reveal the new challenges facing the ancient profession of Midwifery.

Every day we rely on these women to bring our children safely into the world, but just what is it like to be a midwife during one of the biggest baby booms in 40 years?

Told from the perspective of these brave women, this heart-warming documentary sheds light on the unexpected challenges they face.

From tearful teenagers to older single mums, from wealthy women with high expectations to life or death medical emergencies, the midwives reveal what it is like to juggle limited resources while desperately trying to meet patients demands. Their honest opinions and sense of humour prove that there is much more to being a midwife than delivering a baby.
