New Reality Show Alert: Women Giving Birth in The Wild

Born In The Wild Lifetime

The Lifetime Network has announced plans to broadcast a new unscripted reality series, “Born in the Wild,” about mothers who are choosing to give birth outdoors.

The network described the new show in a press release:

For expecting mothers and fathers in their third trimester of pregnancy, things couldn’t get much wilder. From the mood swings and false alarms to the crazy food cravings, learning to expect the unexpected becomes a way of life in the final days leading up to birth. But what happens when the craziest experience of a woman’s life becomes truly wild, and soon-to-be parents decide to take on an unassisted birth in the outdoors? Born in the Wild will document the journeys of young, expectant parents who have chosen to give birth “in the wild.”

The series was inspired by a Youtube video showing a mother giving birth by a stream that has already been viewed more than 20 million times. The network is taking some precautions to minimize risks.

Lifetime has ordered eight hour-long episodes of Born in the Wild.

Will you be watching this? Is this something you’d save space for in your DVR?

      Ain’t that the truth but who needs mosquito bites while trying to give birth. No thanks, I’ll pass!

    Unless the ‘wild’ is in a patch of grass next to a hospital, I’ll pass.
