Series 6 Episode 8
9PM Wed 30 July 2014

A couple who met when they were eight check in at Southmead Hospital 20 years later to have their second baby; another couple, who knew it was love at first sight when their eyes first met at Blackpool nightclub, are having their first child; and two broody youngsters who dream of starting a dynasty come to Southmead for the third time in three years.

Sarah and Jonathan met at junior school and were best friends for years until 'one thing led to another and hey, presto!' Now they're in hospital expecting their second baby.

But Sarah is getting more and more anxious. The memory of her difficult first labour begins to overshadow her experience and she starts to lose confidence in her ability to give birth, while Jonathan does what he can to quell her panic attacks.

Meanwhile, Vikki, who's 23, and Jack, who's 26, want a large family. 'If we have five children and they each have three, then that will be 15 grandchildren,' says Vikki.

They both had lonely and troubled upbringings, and are keen for a big family of their own which they can love and support.

And Naomi knew that Chris was the man of her dreams as soon as she set eyes on him in a Blackpool nightclub. Before then she'd been quiet and shy girl, and never did anything adventurous, preferring to go to bingo with her mum.

But Chris changed all that and she moved to Bristol to be with him. They're about to have their first child together but as Naomi waits for labour to fully kick in she has to spend a night apart from Chris in hospital.
