A new US television show will see women giving birth ‘in the wild’.

Born in the Wild will follow expectant mothers as they give birth outdoors without any medical assistance.

Lifetime, the network which has commissioned the programme, states that all of the women taking part in the series will have already given birth previously and will have been deemed healthy by medical professionals.

A press release quoted in the Independent asks: “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?”
