Emma Willis returns to UKTV as a Maternity Support Worker

Emma Willis returns to W and UKTV Play for a fourth series of Emma Willis: Delivering Babies…

The UKTV Original will see Emma move to Watford General Hospital, managed by West Hertfordshire Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust, to take on the role of Maternity Support Worker across the six-episode series.

Emma Willis:

“It feels great to be returning to the maternity ward as Maternity Support Worker. I have a nervous excitement about continuing my training at a brand-new hospital, which means a totally new ward and team to learn from and work alongside. It’s always an honour and privilege to gain an insight into the incredible role maternity care teams play in such an emotional and vulnerable time for expectant parents.

“My love and thanks go to everyone at the Princess Alexandra Hospital who have been a vital part of this adventure so far. They’re a special bunch and I’ll miss them very much… I can’t wait to get stuck in at a new hospital for what is sure to be another amazing opportunity to shine a light on one of the toughest but most rewarding vocations.”

The move to a different hospital will bring new challenges and opportunities for Emma, as she undertakes the required training for her role. Emma previously trained as a Maternity Care Assistant at the Princess Alexandra Hospital in 2018 and continued to work on the busy maternity ward for two further series, with a three-year gap in between due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Emma’s last shift took place in 2022 and saw her work on the ward and in the local community, providing support to expectant mothers and families.

Helen Nightingale, head of factual and factual entertainment, UKTV:

“It’s a privilege to be working with Emma and the Firecracker team on the fourth series of this joyful show. This time we’ll see Emma step into a new maternity ward, alongside new colleagues, and we can’t wait to see her get stuck in. We are delighted to have this opportunity to shed light on more of Britain’s most hardworking, unsung heroes, midwives.”

Emma Willis: Delivering Babies will air in hour-long slots on W and UKTV Play later this year, with all previous series currently available to stream for free on UKTV Play. The award-winning UKTV Original series is produced by Firecracker Films.
