As the resident expert, Daniels doles out prescriptive advice -- all of which leans heavily toward the holistic side of health care -- throughout each episode. Although she strongly promotes the idea of natural childbirth, she also acknowledges the need for medical intervention in some deliveries; when a patient's circumstances require a hospital birth, she works alongside the labor staff to ensure that the expectant mother's needs are met.

Though it can feel slightly scattered -- episodes often jump between topics rather abruptly -- House of Babies is full of great information for pregnant moms and emotional scenes of healthy deliveries. If your tweens are ready for a real glimpse at childbirth, this is a good introduction, since close-up shots usually don't involve a great deal of blood and the maternity center's atmosphere is relaxed and welcoming.

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.
