Byw gydag Arthur is a documentary about a 36 year old woman from the south Wales valleys who decided to try for a baby.


But this was not an easy decision for Jemma West and her husband, And. Jemma was diagnosed with Arthritis when she was 15 and she's had a number of major operations since then. Trying for a baby meant that she had to stop taking strong pain-relief medication. 


Jemma and And knew that Jemma would suffer severe pain - but having a baby would be a dream come true for both of them.


The programme followed Jemma over a period of many months. And after months of worrying, little Alys was born.
