Ohhhh I love this show!
Is it the American or UK version?
I'll have to make sure my TiVo records it.
It's funny, even with a newborn in my arms, it still makes me clucky.

When I was pregnant last year I watched it every week via 'on demand' sbs.

The UK version had much more integrity IMHO. However the US version was quite funny, so I will Totally be watching!
Thanks OP!

They do genuinely seem surprised when someone says they don't want one.

What I have never understood is that they do not use Nitrous and Oxygen in the US. I've never managed to find out why?

I would say it comes down to profit. They would make a hell of a lot more more from an epidural than gas, and then it increases the chances of other interventions which they make money from.

Does anyone else fine the 100% use of stirrups really confronting? Like their legs in the air, spotlights highlighting the area, everyone wearing hazmat gear and masks. Are they really needed in every single case? Or is it because of the epidurals that they're used?

Thank goodness he finally went and got someone.
She did ask to do it alone but not sure she expected it to be so fast.......that was an awesome delivery.

I laughed at the first woman going on about "I need snacks" and saying she wanted a little fridge in the room for snacks lol.

When one of the partners said something about "Oh that looked painful" while she was having a contraction, I told DH I would slap him if he said something like that lol.

DH and I just laughed through the whole thing. I was expecting something different. Then he really liked the promos for the screaming ladies in the next ep coz he though that was hilarious.
