Little sisters for big brothers - Newborn Russia (E32)

In this episode, two mothers of young sons are looking forward to giving birth to baby daughters who will complete their families.

31-year-old Natalya is mentally preparing to have a C-section. She has already had the procedure once and it went well. Still, reading a list of possible complications makes her nervous. She’d prefer to give birth naturally and hopes her husband will convince the doctors not to operate. He, on the other hand, thinks it best to follow the experts’ advice. Only time will tell, and she will make the ultimate decision to sign the release form.
