This will be a new reality show on Lifetime this year
“Born in the Wild”
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.” Produced by Matador, “Born in the Wild” is executive produced by Jay Peterson, Todd Lubin, Yoshi Stone, alongside Lifetime’s Eli Lehrer, Mary Donahue and Mariana Flynn. Lifetime has ordered eight hour-long episodes of “Born in the Wild.

I think it's cool, but I have a feeling it's going to make everyone seem crazy.

I'm doing it outside, but assisted.

Thats what I think as well Jackie! I mean I think its so cool that they are even having a show highlighting natural birth but no need to make us seem crazier than people already think we are.

I cant wait to hear about your outdoor birth!

Someone just confirmed that it will be an illusion that they are unassisted but in reality doctors will be 2 feet away. Figures.

im not surprised they have medical staff, there is probably a huge liability issue when filming something like birth.

Personally this kind of makes me feel sick. But then much does these days, lol. When I was expecting my 3rd baby, 2nd UC, Laura Shanley called me to ask if I would consider having my birth filmed for a piece on 20/20. I declined. My thoughts were: no matter how rational I was, they would make me seem like a crazy person, and, more importantly, I choose to give birth unassisted for a reason. I would not want strangers present, nor would I want millions of viewers to watch. Just seemed distasteful to me. And awkward and uncomfortable...
