Liverpool Women’s Hospital will be the setting for the next series of Channel 4’s One Born Every Minute.

Returning in 2015, the programmes feature 40 remotely-operated cameras, filming 24 hours a day over the space of a week.

"We are really looking forward to filming the seventh series of One Born Every Minute in Liverpool Women's with its great mix of professionalism, warmth and humour,” said Sarah Swingler, Head of Dragonfly West.

"Even in recent series, One Born continues to tell compelling and magical stories: mums who make it to the hospital with minutes to spare before delivery, home births, twins and triplets, sick babies defying the odds, dads racing to the hospital, miracle IVF babies, and even a baby born in the hospital car park."

The BAFTA-winning documentary has previously been filmed in Leeds, Bristol and Southampton. Cameras will be placed at the reception desk, neonatal ward, operating theatre and birthing pool.

The Liverpool Women’s Hospital will have a busy 12 months, with Channel 5 announcing earlier this month that it had commissioned a behind-the-scenes documentary about the hospital called, Saving Babies.
