One first-time mum finds labour much harder than she expected, while a preacher and his partner are excited about the birth of their eighth child. Later, another couple nervously await the birth of their quadruplets.
A father who is prone to fainting does his best to stay conscious while his partner is given her injections. A new mother faces an agonising wait when her baby daughter is taken away for treatment straight after the birth.
A first-time mum prepares for the birth of her child. Her boyfriend doesn't like hospitals, so her outspoken mother and her boyfriend's equally frank mum will be supporting her throughout the delivery. Later, one woman gets ready for the birth of her second child, but spends much of her labour trying to keep her partner in line.

A loved-up mum gets ready to give birth to twins, a teenager faces a terrifying delivery and a family feud threatens to ruin the atmosphere as a young couple prepare for the birth of their first child.

A couple who already have two boys hope to give birth to their first girl, an anxious doctor dad puts the staff's patience to the test and one couple's dreams of a natural birth are looking less likely as the labour progresses.
