What happens if you’re pregnant and due to have your baby in the Scottish Highlands and you live a hundred – even hundreds of – miles from a big city hospital? With no consultants nearby, no epidurals, the health and safety of you and your baby lies in the hands of some very special women, the Highland Midwives.

Following the work of midwives based in the Scottish Highlands, we witness the unique set of challenges they face as they look after mums-to-be in some of the most beautiful, but remote areas of Scotland.

Featuring three new mums per episode, we see the special bond that develops between them and their Highland midwife as they share the highs and lows of pregnancy, the drama of childbirth, and the determination and drive the midwives have to bring the next generation of Highlanders safely into the world. 

Episode 1

With hospitals few and far between, the role of Midwife here in Scotland is key. Lochgilphead is served by 5 Midwives, including Karen who has been a Midwife for 25 years.

Episode 2

In this episode, we meet Midwife, Morven - who has served Tame, a small town of 4,000 people, for the last 20 years. We also meet the 6 Midwives of Campbeltown, who have to cover an area of 400 square miles - which makes life extremely busy.
