Pregnancy is supposed to be a joyous time for a mother. In most cases families rejoice and great anticipation falls over extended families as they wait for the arrival of the newest addition. Well, that's the way it's supposed to go; but, sometimes it doesn't pan out that way. Secretly Pregnant, a show on Discovery Health tells the stories of women who have made the decision to hide their pregnancy up to and, even after, the birth of their child and the reasons why they've made their decisions.

Each week the audience is treated to an entirely different story, featuring two different women who have decided, for her own reasons, to keep their pregnancies under wraps. The show is cut into two separate segments. Each story is offered a 30 minute segment and culminates in the birth of the baby. Sometimes the pregnancy is hidden from friends, sometimes the immediate family, and sometimes from the child's father. Each story is different and the show follows the women through the mid-way point of their pregnancy right up until they deliver the child; sometimes still in secret.

The stories are so different and varied that each episode feels like a different show; albeit filmed and taped the same. For example; in one episode Charity is secretly pregnant with her sixth child. Charity and her husband are deeply in debt and rely on her parents to foot the bill for them financially. The idea of telling them they are adding another mouth to feed to the, already expansive, clan is terrifying. Once they do tell them, however, the family is more than thrilled. In other scenarios things don't end so happily. Natasha, a woman who has previously had an abortion at the urging of her boyfriend, finds herself pregnant again and terrified to tell the man she loves that, this time, she's having his baby,.

The show is certainly an eye-opener for those who always thought of the birth of a child as a joyous occasion. Sometimes, it simply does not happen that way, and Discovery Health is focused on sharing these stories to help empower women who feel hopeless, helpless and alone.
