Synopsis

Rachel is just 25, but already she has suffered six miscarriages. She represents the 1% of women who struggle to give birth to a live baby. She is a patient at St Mary’s Hospital in London where, in Europe’s largest recurrent miscarriage clinic, a team of dedicated scientists offer women like Rachel the hope of a precious new life. Rachel’s previous pregnancies have all ended by the 11th week. As her seventh pregnancy progresses towards and past that danger zone, the realisation slowly dawns that, this time, she and her husband Gary may finally have the baby they’ve waited seven years for.
