Behind the scenes at the UK's most remote hospital, the Gilbert Bain in Shetland. Episode four takes a closer look at life for Shetland's new and expectant mothers. In the Gilbert Bain's maternity department, first time mum-to-be Caitlin has come in as she is eight months pregnant and can't feel her baby moving. They also see a woman who, ten days past her due date, has to be flown from Shetland to the mainland for specialist assistance giving birth.\n\nMeanwhile, two young girls visit A&E - one having fallen off her Shetland pony and breaking her collarbone and another with a badly injured arm following a trampolining accident. The staff at the Gilbert Bain, who are not specialist paediatricians, have to use all their skills and training to treat them.\n\nAway from the hospital, the programme follow a midwife from Aberdeen who has recently moved to the islands and is struggling to find her way around, all while making house calls to Shetland's newest mothers.
