From packing for the hospital to readying for emergencies, the entry into parenthood—whether for first-timers or veterans—requires careful preparation. This program features a family focused on the impending arrival of its newest member and all the concerns that typically accompany a baby’s birth. Expecting their fourth child, Blainagh and Gerard live a good 90 minutes from the nearest hospital, and their biggest concern is that they’ll deliver on the roadside. Veteran midwife and nurse Gráinne Ryan offers tips on emergency situations, discusses epidurals and the three stages of labor, shows how to use a birthing ball, and helps the expectant parents create a state-of-the-art birthing plan.
