Emma Willis’ New Show ‘Special Births’ Is Giving Us ‘One Born Every Minute’ Vibes

Emma Willis’ New Show ‘Special Births’ Is Giving Us ‘One Born Every Minute’ Vibes

Emma Willis' new baby show Special Births returns to screens tonight, and it's set to be a tearjerker.

The show - a continuation of last year's series Emma Willis: Delivering Babies - sees the TV host meet up with parents and their babies six months on, to discover how their lives have changed since leaving Princess Alexandra Hospital.

In the series, Emma, 44, sits down with the parents to rewatch the births across two hour long episodes - reliving everything from emergencies in the delivery suite, to the more lighthearted, comical moments.

Watch a clip from the upcoming episode here:

She also reflects with them on what life is like with a little one in tow - and, naturally, the babies make an appearance too.

(Cue the whole country collectively gasping: 'My, they've grown!,' like proud aunties.)

In episode one, Emma met parents David and Hayley, who spent three years trying to conceive and eventually welcomed twins through a less than straightforward caesarean section.

She then visits three other new parents, including Kirsty, (who recalls the race against time to have her mother in law at her birth after her waters broke) and Shaz and Ahmet, whose dreams of a waterbirth were shattered as her midwife noticed a change in the baby's heart rate.

Basically, if you sob like a baby at One Born Every Minute then this show is right up your street!

As predicted, fans are already finding the moments of reflection rather emosh.

As another concurred: "[I] shouldnt be watching Emma willis: special births, total emosh".

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.
