The Screen Guide

For any woman, giving birth is a highly emotional experience - made even more challenging if you are new in a country and have little family support. At Sydney’s Canterbury Hospital, nearly 80 per cent of the mothers-to-be are born outside Australia. As well as catering for this cultural diversity, staff must - as always - judge when to let nature take its course and when to intervene medically. This very personal and revealing documentary goes behind the closed doors of the maternity unit to follow all the drama, intensity and unpredictability. It also provides an intimate insight into how different women and their families and cultures welcome new life into the world.
