A new reality show announced by Lifetime on Wednesday will follow young parents who forego not only hospitals during the birthing process, but also any shelter at all. Born in the Wild will portray the men and women who decide that giving birth surrounded by only the beauty and serenity of nature and away from any doctors or modern interventions is the way to go. Inspired by the huge popularity of a YouTube video that shows a woman giving birth in a tropical creek, some critics say such a show could kick off a dangerous trend that will endanger mothers and their babies alike. TV producers state ‘I truly don’t think this is something people would enter into lightly,’ he says. ‘This is a very specific subset of people doing this.’
Producers add if this is popular they are looking at Born in the Wild Nascar edition.
