I’m Having Their Baby Season Premier + $100 Visa Gift Card Giveaway #IHTB

Advertisement When I was pregnant with my kids, I had an obsession with the birth shows and documentary baby shows. I was especially obsessed during those last couple weeks in my last two pregnancies when I was on bed rest. I was always intrigued, entertained, and felt a connection with those other families who were going through some of the same things during their pregnancy. Since I had always enjoyed these types of shows, when I was asked to share Oxygen’s new show, I’m Having Their Baby with ya’ll, I was interested. I’m Having Their Baby is a 6 episode docu-series, which gives viewers a very intimate look into the world of adoption. Making a choice such as this is a very difficult decision for any mother and is a life changing decision. This show brings you into this world. Each hour long episode brings you into the adoption process by getting to know the birth mothers, some of the birth fathers, and the adoptive families. After watching the first episode “Mary and Claudia”, which is available online right now, I was intrigued by the story lines. Normally these types of shows focus on the perspective from the adoptive parents viewpoints so to see the story line from the parent who is making the difficult choice to place their child for adoption helps to get to know the birth mothers and their reasons for doing what they are doing. Due to the nature of the show and like many other documentary type shows on this issue, it is bound to bring up strong feelings for people. Is this a show you would watch or be interested in watching? I invite you to tune into I’m Having Their Baby  on the Oxygen channel Monday, July 23, 2012 at 11 ET/10 CT and join in on our live chat during the show to share your own reactions and viewpoints during the premiere of this show.

  1. Sounds like an interesting show. I’m a big fan of “16 and Pregnant” and not many of the girls on that show place their babies with couples who aren’t able to have babies of their own. Will probably be very interesting!

  2. I’ll definitely watch it. I have wanted to adopt since I was a child and my fiance has always been in love with the idea, as well. We talk about our future adopted children all the time. It’s just something we truly look forward to and I find it absolutely beautiful! Can’t wait to watch the show.

  3. I will def be watching. I think it takes a lot of strength to give a baby up and is the ultimate expression of love!

  4. Sounds like a good show in terms of showing the perspective of what mothers go through when adopting their children to another family. I’m planning on watching this. I have a good friend who is adopted and she is very happy being a part of her adopted family.

  5. I will definitely watch. This is a very interesting show. I think adoption is a positive thing but a hard choice to make.

  6. I have watched the first show on On Demand and I cried the entire show, so emotional

  7. I plan on checking out the premiere, but am not a fan of reality tv. I think this show would be beneficial to those interested in adoptions or surrogacy

  8. I definitely plan on watching this show, I had never heard of it until today. I am extremely excited for it to come on.

  9. I’m planning to watch. I think it’s going to be interesting to see all sides of the adoption story.

  10. I love watching adoption stories. They make me cry, but the stories are heartwarming and heartwrenching all at the same time and totally watchable.

  11. Yes I will be watching the show – I have my own adoption story which is totally positive.
    Thank you.

  12. I don’t know if I’ll watch it. While I like the idea behind the show, it’s on a little too late for me.

  13. I’ve noticed that there are a lot advertisements for the show online and it piques my interest so yes, I will likely tune in :) ~ if having my own baby (due any time now) doesn’t interfere

  14. I will not be watching because this sounds very exploitative to all parties involved.

  15. Actually I think I am going to watch it- I have seen so much about it now it would be hard not to!

  16. I hadn’t heard of it until now but it sounds interesting so I will check it out.

  17. Yes. My sister adopted a baby about 2 years ago. I’m looking forward to watching this show

  18. I am interested in watching it. My middle son met his wife and her 1 month old son 7 years ago. He’s the only dad my grandson has ever known, and was recently officially adopted into our family. So adoption is a subject close to my heart.

  19. This is the first I’ve heard of it. I’m not sure if we get the Oxygen network, but if so I’ll check it out

  20. My sister has adopted two children and is trying to adopt a third, so this is interesting to me.

  21. I just saw a commercial for this show last night & I will definitely watch it. I think I will need some tissues to watch it though.

  22. yes i am! it looks great to me – hope it battles some of the misconceptions about adoption!

  23. Yes, our family will be watching! We have family who have adopted and although a hard decision, I think will be a great show to bring forth much dialogue.
