Birth in Nature


Lifetime's newest reality venture is stirring up quite the debate.

Born in the Wild follows women who have chosen to give birth unassisted in the wilderness. No medicine, no doctors. Many professionals in the medical community are slightly outraged, claiming that not only is this a completely ridiculous idea for a reality show, but it's medically unsafe. We can't speak to the medical concerns (Lifetime has taken provisions to ensure the women are safe, like an EMT close by, etc.), and hey, every woman gets the right to plan her own birth. But...Should it be a TV show?! We just aren't sure.

What we do know, without question, is that when it comes to the TV landscape in general, almost no reality show is too outrageous to exist. 

To prove it, we've got a collection of some of the most out there and (sometimes) totally watchable fare reality TV has to offer. Sure, there aren't any others that were inspired by very NSFW viral videos of a woman giving birth in a creek (pictured above), but there is an entire series about sex gone wrong, and another about naked strangers in a forest that's sure to entertain you in multiple ways.

So check out our gallery by clicking below, and either scoff or snort or set your DVR (we're not here to judge)...
