Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (8 ):

This is a wonderful show for the whole family to watch, and a great way to start teaching preschoolers about the facts of life and how miraculous childbirth can be. For any parent worried that the series may expose young children to a little too much a little too early, rest assured that the camera is installed near the mother's head during delivery, not at her feet -- so viewers don't get the same perspective as the doctors and nurses. And the birth footage is only slightly graphic; the baby -- still covered in bloody mucus -- is typically held up for the parents (and the camera) to see as soon as it's born, but it's usually not a close-up shot.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
