Just watched this last night (recorded) - aw! It did give me worrying dreams though. Am only 17 and a half weeks, so a bit early for all that yet! DP was a bit disturbed by it all too (it's our first, can you guess?) - blood and pain and being whisked off! Seeing the babies at the end was really lovely though.
I thought both mums were great, and liked Richard a lot - thought Ben was a bit soppy though.
Suprisingly there is a very complicated back story and although I too thought that 'One Born every minute' was a lovely programme - the stories are not quite as they seem and do not seem to be checked out by the makers ... I am Richards ex wife..... so would advise every tale is taken with a huge bucket load of salt....
MissyMooanherBeaverofSteel - lovely name ... Mumsnet .. great .. I was just warning everybody who watched the programme that it may not be quite as clear cut as it seems ... I am certainly not going to go into too much detail and I also did not go trawling through threads to find this ... I was told by a friend .... that being the case - I feel sorry for his wife then, and now which are neither me or Shelagh and feel particularly sorry for his two sons who had to watch a programme where he declared that he hadn't seen them because he was in the army ... he was in the army and chose not to see them - it was certainly not primarily because of operational movements, and this programme which was unexpected and hurtful opened scars which have still not healed for them. I certainly wasn't making assumptions about people and I would appreciate if you did the same.
