Baby Hospital, Tuesday, May 8
LifeStyle You, 8.30pm
Gruelling but insightful documentary narrated by Sue Johnston about Liverpool Women's Hospital and the neonatal intensive care unit for sick babies. Amid the pink and blue balloons and fluffy bears, tiny babies with all kinds of health issues teeter between life and death. New parents Laura and Phil watch over Reilly, who almost died during labour, while teenage mum Amy hovers over her newborn son, Charlie, who has kidney failure. Worry is etched in all of their faces as they hold impossibly small hands and hope for the best and, while some babies pull through, others are not so fortunate. It's difficult for the program makers to confront the challenges being faced while respecting the dedication of the families, doctors, nurses and support staff.
