What parents need to know

Positive messages

The series centers on three successful female doctors who discuss their mixed emotions about balancing their careers and family lives.


Birth and surgical scenes can be bloody.


The series centers on an obstetrical practice, so expect plenty of references to patients' fertility and efforts to get pregnant. Birth scenes may include glimpses of female genitalia, but it's never in a sexual context.

Not applicable

The docs' private practice gets a fair amount of publicity.

Parents Need to Know

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."

What's the story?

DELIVER ME introduces viewers to three female doctors who struggle with the demands of balancing their successful OB/GYN practice and their busy family lives. Professional partners and long-time friends Alane Park, Yvonne Bohn, and Allison Hill share the daily drama within their Los Angeles practice and their homes, opening up about the emotional highs and lows of their work and how their own experiences as mothers affects how they relate to their patients.

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.

Families can talk about...

  • Families can talk about the educational value of medical docuseries like this one. Teens: What, if anything, did you learn from this show? Do you think the series' intent is more to teach or entertain? What aspects of the show were strictly entertaining? Can you think of other similar series that dispense more information than drama? Who do you think this show's target audience is? Why?

I lost six brain cells watching this

Genitles are blurred before and after births.

It's okay for older kids, unless they are squeamish. I find nothing wrong with it. The gentials are blurred out, and there's very little mention of sex. However, I think girls would be able to watch it at an earlier age than boys. I think 11 is okay for girls, maybe 13 for boys (if they actually care).
