Motherland

Season 30 Episode 17 | 1h 23m 4s

Motherland is an absorbingly intimate, vérité look at the busiest maternity hospital in the world, in one of the poorest and most populous countries: the Philippines. Women share their stories with other mothers, their families, doctors and social workers. In a hospital that is literally bursting with life, we witness the miracle/wonder of the human condition.
