Alex Jones narrates a series that takes viewers on a journey through the first weeks and months around the arrival of a newborn. The programme follows seven Welsh families from birth onwards, gaining unique access to family life, with cameras going behind closed doors to reveal what really goes on when new parents bring home their baby. The families - from across Wales - include a couple from Burry Port, a newly married couple from Machen, a single mum from the Valleys and a lively Cardiff family. A team of experts is on hand to explain and comment on events as the weeks and months roll by, providing insights into the babies' development, as well as keeping track of the parents' health, wellbeing and mental state.

The first episode focuses on preparations for birth and the shock of the arrival of a new baby. Sam and Rob from Machen are expecting triplets and are stocking up with hundreds of nappies, wipes and other supplies. Most triplets are delivered premature, and theirs will be no exception. In Burry Port, Cathy and Andrew are counting on being among the three per cent of parents who have a homebirth. Kelle and Ali from Cardiff have a very lively household: two dogs and a cheeky four-year-old daughter Ayla. And Kathryn and Richard from Ammanford are a couple with a master plan, with all the elements of the pregnancy plotted with military precision.
