Baby Hospital follows the moving stories of the babies being cared for on the Neonatal Unit at Liverpool Women’s Hospital. Everyone hopes for a healthy happy baby – but this three part series looks at the one in ten cases where things don’t go to plan, and the baby ends up in intensive care, teetering between life and death.

With unique access to the hospital, the three part series will focus on the stories of the families as well as providing a rare and intimate insight into the intensely demanding work of the doctors and nurses tasked with doing all they can to save their tiny patients’ lives.


Episode 1

The Women’s Hospital in Liverpool is the largest of its kind in the country. As a centre of excellence, its dedicated staff pride themselves on being at the cutting edge of neonatal science. They provide round the clock care for babies born prematurely, with low weight or who have a medical condition requiring specialist treatment. The neonatal unit cares for a thousand babies a year - some of the smallest and sickest - babies who weigh just half a pound, and who are on the cusp of life.
