Newborn Russia. Episode 4


Oksana's husband Aleksey joins her in the hospital after her water breaks. Although husbands never joined wives during delivery in the Soviet era, the practice has become more common - so although the couple have two children, this is Aleksey's first time in the delivery room. Can he handle the pressure? Meanwhile, Polina's water has broken, but her husband won't be joining her; he's told everyone in their church to pray that all goes well. There are complications with her birth and her doctor must perform a Caesarean. How do they coach her through the experience?
