Often, when cameras allow us to follow the emotional adoption process, it's through the eyes of the prospective parents. But getting an inside look at the experience of the birth mother who has made the decision to place her baby for adoption? That's something we rarely see.
Oxygen's new six-part docu-series, I'm Having Their Baby, premieres July 23, 11 p.m. EST, with each episode giving viewers a powerful peek at two pregnant women who have chosen to place their babies for adoption. The series follows the women through the heart-wrenching process, including the birth and the final emotional choice to give the baby away.
"I'm Having Their Baby shows an honest portrayal of women who are in the midst of dealing with the most difficult decision of their lives," Oxygen Media's Rod Aissa says in a release.
In the first episode, we'll meet Mary, 25, whose affair led to pregnancy, and now she must choose between her marriage and being a single parent. We'll also meet Claudia, whose unplanned pregnancy occurred after dating a boyfriend for just a month.
