VIDEO: The Midwives Season 1 Episode 5 S01E05 Room Service
September 23, 2015
This film is set on the maternity ward of Wirral Women and Children's Hospital, near Liverpool. The midwives here look after the mothers who can't or won't be at home in the days before or immediately after their baby is born. Each one of the 26 single en-suite rooms on the ward will present the midwives with a different problem. They see a mix of antenatal and postnatal patients. This means medically high risk mums waiting to have their baby may be staying in the room next door to anxious first time parents.
