Imagine performing an operation on a baby that is still in the womb. This powerful observational documentary follows the life-or-death stories of babies whose only hope of survival is fetal surgery. With exclusive access to world famous fetal surgeon Professor Kypros Nicolaides and his team at King’s College Hospital in London, we go behind the scenes with the mothers whose babies are in extreme danger.
