Life has always gone smoothly for Jess, but then she got pregnant and it wasn't just her breakfast that started going down the pan. And now her baby has "fallen out" before she's even started anti-natal classes.
Suddenly, she's sucked into the bubble of the Neonatal Unit, where tensions run high and the real world feels very far away. She has a new home, new routines, new friends and even a new crush - and sleep deprivation, stress and separation are threatening to tear her neat little world apart.
When it's time for Jess to leave, what will she be going home to? And who will she be going home with?
