Our Maternity teams and the families we care for were featured throughout the prime-time series of the hit show One Born Every Minute.

We opened our doors and letting millions of viewers into our specialist hospital to offer a glimpse of life on our maternity unit – which sees more than 8,000 births each year.

Produced by Dragonfly, which previously put together the Inside Birmingham Children’s Hospital documentary series, the BAFTA award-winning programme featured members of our teams, including many of our midwives from our Delivery Suite and Birth Centre.

This series, the first to be filmed at our Birmingham Women’s Hospital, takes us on the journeys of more than 30 soon-to-be-parents – celebrating the rich cultural mix of our city.

“The series offered viewers a flavour of the dedication, skill and compassion of the amazing teams on our Maternity Unit, who are by the side of thousands of families each year through their pregnancy, birthing journey and beyond.

“No two days are the same, and each and every birth brings a special story as babies are welcomed into the world, changing lives forever.  We are truly delighted to have worked together with our friends at Dragonfly to capture and share just some of these moments through One Born Every Minute, and to leave the families we showcase with a permanent record of this momentous time. ”
