Emma Willis' Midwife Series Is Coming Back

Emma Willis' Midwife Series Is Coming Back

Emma Willis' much-loved midwife series is set to return to our screens for a two-part special on telly channel, W.

Emma Willis: Special Births will see the presenter meet up with a number of parents and their new arrivals six months on from their birth and the initial filming.

As a follow up to Emma Willis: Delivering Babies, Emma, 43, will sit down with the parents to rewatch the births - from emergencies in the delivery suite, to heartwarming and comical moments.

She'll also reflect with them on the moment their babies arrived - and it's set to be an emotional rollercoaster as the families relive their babies coming into the world.

Across two hour-long episodes, Emma - who is a mum of three herself - will share the highs and lows with each family as well as learning how things have changed since they were on the maternity ward.

The original documentary series, Delivering Babies, saw Emma live out her dream of becoming a midwife for 10 weeks.

During the TV series, Emma joined the midwifery team at the Princess Alexandra Hospital in Essex doing tea rounds, fulfilling cleaning duties and watching as babies were delivered.

The presenter trained for three months as a Maternity Care Assistant and worked four shifts a week alongside the midwives.

Helen Nightingale, senior commissioning editor at UKTV, said: "Emma is so passionate about her role as a Maternity Care Assistant, so it's wonderful to see her re-visit families and see how childbirth has changed their lives since leaving the hospital.

"I'm sure there'll be some lovely revelations and will be truly heart-warming telly."

Meanwhile, Sam Emmery, head of documentaries for Firecracker Films, said: "We are delighted to be working with the wonderfully talented Emma Willis and fantastic team at W again on this two-part special series.

"The series will give W viewers a unique opportunity to see a whole new set of birth stories and will showcase the amazing work the maternity staff at the Princess Alexandra Hospital carry out on a daily basis."

While an air date has not yet been released, it is expected to arrive on W this year. We can't wait to see how all the families have been getting on!
