'The Rotunda' series shows families as they welcome their newborn babies into the world.

Linda Kelly, a campaigner for maternity rights took to Twitter to slam the fact that the show was allowed to continue while partners were told to wait in cars as women gave birth, 'Let that sink in. A TV show was considered more important than providing safe, compassionate care. #BetterMaternityCare.'

Helen Vaughan, Psychotherapist Maynooth Counselling and Eoghan Tomas McDermott, Managing Director, The Communications Clinic joined The Last Word to discuss this and other trending stories from the week.
