Women Giving Birth Outdoors: New Reality Show Sparks Controversy

Lifetime television network is set to feature a new reality show that will focus on the ultimate gift a woman can give, bringing a baby into the world. However this show will come with a twist the expectant couples featured on the show will be giving birth with nature as its backdrop.

The show is titled “Born in the Wild” and it will document the journey of expectant couples who have made the choice to give birth to their newborn babies outside among nature. You read correct, give birth and forgo the comforts of a hospital room or even their own homes to be one with nature while bringing baby into the world.

Childbirth is one of the most natural things a woman’s body is designed to do but the process of giving birth does come with some complications.

Dr. Ron Jaekle M.D. a maternal-fetal medicine specialist at the University of Cincinnati Medical Center shared these statistics on the subject of women dying during childbirth. “In the 1900s, a woman died for every 1,000 babies born in the United States. Today it’s .1 for every 1,000, according to Entertainment weekly.”

This unique topic of woman giving birth in the wild was inspired by a viral video that racked up over 21 million hits on Youtube. Lifetimes show “Born in the Wild” will take precautions to ensure the safety of the mother and unborn child. According to Entertainment weekly trained emergency professional will be on site. And while the couple will choose the birthing location, the production will remain within a certain radius of a hospital should complications arise.

This show is certain to stir up controversy just like former talk show host Rikki Lake did in 2008. Lake positioned an intelligent look at where and how babies should be born in her documentary feature “The Business of Being Born”.

This is certainly a show that is not for the faint of heart.
