Sex, Romance & Nudity

The docs' private practice gets a fair amount of publicity.
Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this emotional docuseries includes uncensored footage of childbirth. Squeamish viewers may have difficulty with bloody birth and surgical scenes, and subjects' frank discussions about the emotions surrounding pregnancy complications, miscarriage, and stillbirth may be upsetting to sensitive folks. If older tweens or teens tune in with you, be ready to answer questions about what they see and hear, including unfamiliar medical terms like "cerclage" and "amniocentesis."
Is It Any Good?
This docuseries sets itself apart from other shows with similar agendas (Maternity Ward, for example) by devoting a hefty portion of time to the doctors' home lives and relating them to their work. As they get to know more about the docs' private lives, viewers will be increasingly touched by the women's empathy for their patients and the sincere emotion they share during the ups and downs of pregnancy and delivery.
That said, the show includes fairly graphic childbirth scenes and frank talk about possible risks of pregnancy and birth (organ failure, miscarriage, and death, to name a few). Teens won't be bothered by the content, but it likely won't really capture their attention, either. And while the subject matter may appeal to expectant women, before tuning in, know that it's easy to get wrapped up in the subjects' emotions -- and to get upset when the patients and their babies experience serious complications.
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.
