Animal Maternity goes inside the UK’s top zoo breeding programs, animal sanctuaries and farms as keepers, vets and breeders use the latest techniques and technology to bring precious new additions into the world.
Our cleverly concealed cameras capture never before seen footage of the big moment as new arrivals make their long awaited entrance.
We’ll be there as they have their first feed, attempt their first steps and as mother and baby bond. But we’ll also follow the stories where things don’t go to plan, as keepers and vets battle to save special babies, through surgery, adoption and hand rearing.
