    I said to my dh, '20 years before you were born, a baby born at the same gestation as you got put in a basin and put to the side. 20 years is nothing'. Great show, can't wait for more.

    Yep look it up on ABC iview, it's called "Call the Midwife". I think there were some links posted earlier in this thread somewhere too, but it's pretty easy to find on the iview website

    I thought it was great. Really eye opening. It made me realise just how awfully traumatic my own mothers birth would have been in 1943 - c.section, ether, 50% mortality rate for her mother No wonder they never bonded.

    How lucky are we to live now?
