A SNEAK peek of a new TV series following Bradford midwives has been released ahead of its screening.

Yorkshire Midwives On Call shows the work of the home birth team at Bradford Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust during the last few months.

The five-part series will be broadcast on BBC Two with the first episode shown on Easter Monday at 8pm.

In the first episode, three expectant mums are planning for home births. Midwife Michaela assists junior doctors Rebecca and Tim with a water birth for their second child.


BBC North unveiled a trailer for the series on social media, with the Bradford Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust tweeting: “ Here it is, folks....a first glimpse of what's coming on Easter Monday, and it looks like a lot of bundles of joy!

“Yorkshire Midwives On Call doing what they do best - delivering babies at home with care, kindness and Yorkshire love.”

Filming for the BBC Two series, from Farsley-based production company Candour, began last summer and continued until February this year.

Bradford's home birth team started in April 2019 when there were 57 mums who had planned to give birth at home.

By August 2020 this had grown to 105 and in May 2021 there were 175.
