Full post production on the 6 x 60 minute documentary series for BBC One.

The six-part series reveals what it really takes to deliver Britain’s next generation, through the eyes of parents and staff at three of Birmingham’s busiest maternity hospitals. With unprecedented access across two NHS trusts, from the antenatal clinics and nationally renowned Fetal Medicine Centres, to the delivery suites, emergency operating theatres and Birmingham Children’s Hospital, the series gives an extraordinary and privileged insight into the places where cutting-edge medicine meets the miracle of birth every single day.

Narrated by Suranne Jones and produced by Dragonfly - the makers of the BAFTA award-winning BBC ONE series Ambulance - Life And Birth goes beyond the stories of the labour ward and meets the people who help the safe and healthy delivery of babies, showing maternity care in a way that it has not been seen before.

Perry Gibbs completed the grade with Digital Visions Nucoda.
