This film shines the spotlight on birth and infant mortality around the world. One hundred and thirty million babies are born each year, but the circumstances - and country - of their birth will determine their life story. BAFTA-winning filmmaker Brian Hill travels from the UK to America, Cambodia and Sierra Leone to reveal the shocking lottery of childbirth across the globe. In Sierra Leone - the worst country in which to be born, in terms of infant mortality, where one in eight women will die in childbirth - we meet Hawa, who is expecting her fifth baby.
