One in five expectant women in the UK are severely obese. With the numbers rapidly rising, hospitals have taken drastic action to address the situation.

In this factual mini-series, we visit the ward of ‘Bumps and Beyond’ a specialist unit for some of the nation’s oversized mums. From the first appointments, complications, weight loss, and giving birth, and the specially adapted equipment strong enough to cope with the birthing process. Plus the incredible work of the staff that care for them along the way. It’s packed full of drama and joyous moments, keeping viewers transfixed as these supersized mums prepare for the biggest physical challenge of their lives.
