The four-part docuseries kicks off on Wednesday on BBC Two and follows six families as they begin their journey into parenthood.

The inaugural heartwarming episode introduces four couples of expectant parents; first-timers Syler and Mo Nicholson-Bayoumi, fifth-time lucky Helen and Nigel Pierce as well as overdue Hermisha Nkrumah and her husband Shabazz.

The series also welcomes first-time dads Paul and Craig Saunders, who are eagerly awaiting the arrival of their twin girls via surrogate, who just so happens to be their workmate Mel.

The show also follows seasoned parents Helen and Nigel heading to the hospital to be induced and give birth to their fifth child. Old hands at labour, they pass the time doing a crossword as her contractions grow stronger.

While in Bedfordshire, overdue Hermisha is reduced to tears waiting for her baby girl to arrive but is heartwarmingly comforted by her two boys Elijah, seven, and Ezrah, five.

"Following six families over their first laughter, love and chaos-filled weeks of parenthood, the series provides a window into family life in 2019."
