Discovery Health Delivers 'Shock and Awww' With An All-New BABY WEEK, Starting November 30

- Three All-New Specials, a Brand-New Series and Two Network Premieres Headline the Network's Signature Programming Event -

SILVER SPRING, Md., Nov. 11 -- Beginning Monday, November 30, Discovery Health's BABY WEEK will introduce some of the most jaw-dropping, improbable and inspiring stories ever told on television. From expectant mothers' indomitable will to survive, to unconventional families' historic births, to high-risk pregnancies that defy all the odds--this edition of BABY WEEK features actual events that will astonish viewers and create lasting buzz.

Behind every baby is an unbelievable story--and this edition of BABY WEEK showcases more of the shocking, heartwarming and downright bewildering tales that viewers have come to love on Discovery Health. The special programming begins each night at 8 PM (ET/PT) from Monday, November 30, through Friday, December 4.

Featured BABY WEEK world premieres include:

* SHE SURVIVED THAT...PREGNANT?!

* TRANSGENDERED AND PREGNANT

* I'M PREGNANT AND...

* DWARF ADOPTION STORY

BABY WEEK kicks off with the premiere of SHE SURVIVED THAT...PREGNANT?!, an incredible hour-long special recounting the stories of pregnant women who survived deadly accidents and encounters that could have killed them--and their unborn children. The incredible pregnant women include a woman whose parachute failed to open, causing her to land face-first on the ground; a woman who was first chased by a bear--and then after she managed to escape, was hit by a car; a woman who fell over a balcony and was impaled by a microphone stand; and a woman who was shot in the uterus, with her unborn baby suffering a bullet wound as well.

BABY WEEK will also feature the following all-new premiere programs:

* TRANSGENDERED AND PREGNANT

NEW SPECIAL! Premieres Tuesday, December 1, at 8 PM (ET/PT)

This hour-long special tells the amazing story of a transgendered couple--the wife, a male-to-female and the husband, a female-to-male transgender--expecting a baby under the most unusual of circumstances. In spite of ongoing hormone treatments, the male-to-female transgender wife managed to impregnate the husband, a female-to-male transgender--and Discovery Health's cameras capture the couple throughout the pregnancy leading up to the birth of their first child.

* I'M PREGNANT AND...

NEW SERIES! Premieres Tuesday, December 1, at 9:30 PM (ET/PT)

This brand-new series follows the stories of women facing serious issues--emotional, physical, mental or circumstantial--as they navigate their nine-month journey through pregnancy. Topics explored throughout the six-part series include:

* I'M PREGNANT AND I'M ADDICTED

* I'M PREGNANT AND I HAVE AN EATING DISORDER

* I'M PREGNANT AND OVER 55

* DWARF ADOPTION STORY

NEW SPECIAL! Premieres Thursday, December 3, at 8 PM (ET/PT)

This hour-long special follows the daily lives of David and Tina King, a dwarf couple who hope to adopt their second child--a 2-year-old dwarf from Albania. DWARF ADOPTION STORY follows the King family on the journey of a lifetime to adopt the baby of their dreams.

In addition, Discovery Health will offer the following network premiere baby-themed programming during BABY WEEK:

* LITTLE PARENTS, FIRST BABY

Network Premiere! Wednesday, December 2, at 8 PM (ET/PT)

Dwarf couple Becky and Craig Hennon welcomed their first child earlier this year--now, Discovery Health's cameras revisit the family to see how they are faring, and find out if they have learned whether their baby boy will also be a dwarf.

* EXPECTING 15 BABIES

Network Premiere! Friday, December 4, at 8 PM (ET/PT)

Three families experience the dangerous business of giving birth to and raising multiples, including the first Hispanic sextuplets in the United States, an expecting mother of quadruplets and a family with 22-month-old quintuplets!

Online at DiscoveryHealth.com, visitors will have access to vital information on pregnancy, babies and the postpartum period through an array of resources, including relevant articles, tip sheets and expert-driven guides. In addition, visitors can discuss pregnancy and parenting in community support forums. The refreshed site will also feature interactive quizzes, fun games and exclusive video content.
