Emma, 42, worked four shifts a week – both day and night – at the Princess Alexandra Hospital in Essex to fully experience life as an MCA.

She told Red magazine: “Honestly, it’s one of the best things I’ve ever done. I love it.”

Emma, a mum of three, got fully stuck into her work, taking on every aspect of her training including changing bedsheets and clearing up after delivery.

She was in the room when women actually gave birth, telling the magazine that for one mum, with bad back pain, she rubbed her back during delivery.

“When that baby came out I was a mess,” she said. “I cried more than the baby did!”

Emma has previously said she always wanted to work in a hospital before ending up a TV star.

“If I wasn’t doing my current job I know for a fact that I would have loved to work in a hospital,” she said.

“Blood, guts and the workings of the human body have always fascinated me. Both my parents worked in hospitals and so it’s literally in my blood.”

Just before Delivering Babies was announced, Emma had actually said in an interview that delivering a baby was on her bucket list!

She told Daily Star’s TV Life: “I want to deliver a baby, or at least see a delivery. I think it would be incredible to witness. I missed mine because I was at the other end.

“I need my little sister to have a baby, really. I could be her birthing partner.”
