This hugely popular BAFTA award-winning documentary features the extraordinary highs and lows of day-to-day life in a maternity hospital – where every minute of every hour a baby is born in Britain, but no birth story is ever the same.
A baby is born in Spain every minute. Forty cameras set up in one of the most prestigious maternity wards in Europe will witness the most exciting moment of any human being’s life. Forty cameras seeking real stories about rising above, love, pain, fear and, above all, hope. Steered by the guiding hands of David F. Miralles and Jordi Rosell, Baby Boom shows us the path taken by each mother, from the moment she arrives at the maternity ward up until she holds her baby in her arms. From the delivery room to the operating room, from the medical exam to the neonatal unit, from the excitement of the expectant parents to the daily routine in the maternity ward. Dozens of children are born in this hospital, definitely changing our lives at this moment, both so intimate and so extraordinary. Because life itself changes with every passing minute. This is Baby Boom.
