After nearly five months of filming last fall and winter, Vanderbilt University Medical Center will be the subject of a new reality TV series about the miracle of childbirth. The series is scheduled to debut today at 1:30 p.m. CDT, on TLC.
The series, titled “Baby's First Day,” is a new effort for TLC's daytime programming that focuses on stories about mothers and their newborn babies.
The entire first season of “Baby's First Day,” which consists of 26 half-hour episodes, was filmed at VUMC. Each new episode is currently scheduled to debut at 1:30 p.m. CDT, and then will re-air the following morning at 8:30 a.m. CDT. For more information please consult TLC's programming schedule at http://tlc.discovery.com/tv-schedules/daily.html.
Participating faculty and staff from the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Center for Women's Health, Department of Anesthesiology, Vanderbilt University School of Nursing's Midwifery Practice, Department of Pediatrics and the Monroe Carell Jr. Children's Hospital at Vanderbilt, along with their patients, are the subjects of this new series.
TLC's description of the series says, “Every day, around the clock, women arrive at Vanderbilt University Medical Center for the most challenging and overwhelming experience of their lives — childbirth. No matter what happens, the excitement and joy of the staff and patients come together in a perfect drama where every moment is indeed a miracle.”
