The wait is over. Oxygen is bringing back a 2nd season of I’m Having Their Baby and it premieres tonight, June 12th at 10/9c. As seen during season one, this documentary-style series gave viewers an intimate peek into the world of adoption by telling the too-often untold story of the birth mother and her experience in making this difficult and emotional choice. It was at times difficult to watch. My heart just felt for those mothers. However, so many women struggle with an unplanned pregnancy. The women who are documented in this series move through the adoption process and ultimately, decide whether or not to place their baby in the hands of another family. As I watched season one, I admired both their strength and their courage.
Season two will continue on this path, delving deeper into the lives of birth mothers entering the adoption process, their family and friends affected by their decision and in some cases the potential adoptive couples. Each episode follows two pregnant women who have made the choice to place their babies for adoption, and are making the life changing decisions that come next. While getting to know the birth mother, and in some cases the birth father and potential adoptive couple, the hour-long episodes allow viewers to bear witness to the adoption process and heart wrenching final decision that each woman must face.
Watch the trailer above as the mothers battle with and discuss their difficult decisions that will be revealed in season two. Sometimes I wonder how they can reveal so much. However, all of the birth mothers wanted to share their story openly and honestly. Oxygen’s goal was to be authentic in the representation of these very personal journeys and the mixed emotions that come along with that, allowing viewers to bear witness to the adoption process and heart-wrenching final decision each family must face. I’m Having Their Baby puts the reality in reality TV.
