UKTV’s W channel has handed out a second season renewal to Emma Willis: Delivering Babies. Eight episodes have been ordered for the show’s second season. Additionally, W has ordered a one-off special, titled Emma Willis: Meet The Babies, in which she revisits the parents and babies she met during Delivering Babies.
Delivering Babies follows Emma on a busy maternity ward. In season one she was training on the job, while in season two she is a fully-qualified Maternity Care Assistant. Emma will be on shift alongside her old team, ready to assist the hard-working staff as they help bring new life into the world. But now, it’s time to put everything she’s learned to the test, her days as a trainee are over.
Meet The Babies follows Emma as she visits some of the parents and babies she met during her training last year and together they’ll look back at the births. Both Delivering Babies and Meet The Babies are produced by Firecracker Films. The executive producers are Firecracker’s Head of Documentaries Sam Emmery, Creative Director of Factual Emma Morgan, and Chief Creative Officer Jes Wilkins.
The second season of Emma Willis: Delivering Babies and the one-off special Emma Willis: Meet The Babies will air later this season. The renewal comes after the show’s first season ranked as W’s most-watched series of 2018, with almost a million people tuning into the premiere episode. “We’re beyond ecstatic the first series won so much support among the W audience and acclaim across the wider broadcast world”, said Adam Collings, Channel Director for W. “As the most watched show on W last year, we can’t wait for Emma to return to the hospital.”
“Training at the Princess Alexandra Hospital was such an amazing experience, so I am absolutely delighted to be returning again this year!”, Emma Willis added in a statement. “Training to be an MCA was a real eye opener so I can’t wait to see what they’ve got in store for me over the coming weeks. I loved being part of so many wonderful memories for families last year, so it will be great to meet up with some of them and see how they’re getting on.”
