Twice Born: Stories from the Special Delivery Unit
This three-part miniseries steps inside the groundbreaking medical frontier of fetal surgery with an intimate look at The Special Delivery Unit at The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, where a courageous group of doctors and their patients take on the challenges of operations done on babies still inside their mother's wombs.
With exclusive access to this elite unit, the film captures rarely-seen, real-time footage of fetal operations. Meet expecting parents as they face gut-wrenching decisions: should they take a leap of faith to repair birth defects with prenatal surgery, even if it means they might lose their child? And, hear firsthand from the unusual team of doctors who have defied skeptics and chosen to pursue this high-risk / high-reward career path.
This program contains scenes of fetal surgery.
VIDEO USAGE RIGHTS
Why the AV version? Because it provides additional usage options for PBS videos. AV versions come with limited performance rights so they can be shown in classrooms, at PTA meetings, during after school programs, and transmitted on a closed-circuit system within a building or on a single campus. They also can be enjoyed in admission-free public screenings, which also makes them ideal for use by library patrons and businesses involved in community clubs and organizations.
