What made you want to do this series?
“Two things – I watched my mum do it growing up and so it’s kind of what I always thought I would do. I didn’t necessarily think that I would work in a maternity unit, but that’s what my mum did, and I always thought I would end up in a hospital in some way.
And the second reason was actually having babies myself. As soon as I gave birth for the first time, I was introduced to what midwives and people who work on a maternity unit do, how much they help you and the incredible things that they get to witness when they see childbirth. That was it, I was like right, I want to be a birthing partner, a doula, a midwife, anything that could get me into a birthing situation…without having to put a camera at the end of the bed and watching myself do it again.
