One Born Every Minute' follows the drama of a maternity unit from the perspective of the parents-to-be and the ward staff at America's Riverside Methodist Hospital in Columbus, Ohio. With 40 cameras rolling for 24 hours a day, seven days a week, this ground-breaking and tender series continues to capture the highs and lows of this bustling maternity hospital. From the reception desk to the neo-natal ward; the operating theatre to the birthing pool, observe the emotional, tense and often humorous moments that go hand in hand with bringing a new life into the world. Meet 40 year old Melissa who is preparing to give birth to her second child only twelve months after having her first.

Capturing the enduring emotion surrounding birth, these real life stories make compelling viewing.
