Hospital to welcome TV presenter Emma Willis back to the frontline for hit series
THE Princess Alexandra Hospital NHS Trust (PAHT) is set to welcome TV presenter Emma Willis back to its maternity unit for the hit series Delivering Babies.
Emma will return to her role as a maternity care assistant (MCA) this summer, rejoining the team after two challenging years as they managed the demands of the COVID-19 pandemic.
In the third series, as well as working on the unit, Emma will experience working in the community with home births, and she will learn more about one of the most difficult aspects of the care the team provide – supporting expectant mothers and families who lose their babies.
Emma Willis said: “I am so excited to be back. I can’t believe how long it’s been since I worked a shift with the wonderful team at PAHT. The staff are still very much on the frontline and, although life is starting to feel normal for us, I’m sure there will still be lots of challenges for us to work around whilst filming on the busy maternity unit.”
Giuseppe Labriola, director of midwifery at PAHT, said: “We are delighted to welcome Emma back to the team.
“We look forward to Emma joining us again as we support families through such a special time in their lives.”
Sharon McNally, director of nursing, midwifery and allied health professionals at PAHT, said: “It is fantastic that Emma is returning to our hospital.
“Our maternity team are all excited to support her on shift and show a slice of life at PAHT.”
Series 1 of Emma Willis: Delivering Babies saw Emma train for three months to become a maternity care assistant in the busy maternity unit at The Princess Alexandra Hospital. In series 2, Emma returned to The Princess Alexandra Hospital and successfully completed her training as a fully-qualified maternity care assistant.
The hit series has been awarded the Broadcast Digital Award for Best Popular Factual for three years running, with Emma Willis: Delivering Babies in 2020 being named as the Best Lockdown Programme in that category at last year’s ceremony.
Emma Willis: Delivering Babies will return to W later this year.
It is a hospital, one which is failing badly across the board, it does not need to be worrying about the distractions of TV.
Poem:- Well done Emma! You're so down to earth! I was raised in Harlow. Well done, for helping births! You're doing a great job, Helping mothers to give birth. I say it once again:- You're so down to earth! I hope you're returning to Big Brother, Now that it's back next year. I really loved Big Brother. If you're back, I'll shed a tear (Not really).
