It’s Almost Baby Week on Discovery Health!

From pregnancy to parenting, having a baby is a life-changing event. Join Discovery Health for an all-new Baby Week from July 12-16, as they celebrate the real-life drama of babies born under extraordinary circumstances.

First, fall in love with the tiny heroes of Discovery Health’s newest series, NICU, premiering on Thursday, July 15 at 10pm ET/PT. This ten-episode docu-drama takes viewers behind the scenes at the top neonatal intensive care units in Baltimore, San Diego and Cleveland, showing the day-to-day care required to sustain the smallest and most fragile lives. NICU follows families experiencing the rollercoaster of emotions that come with having a premature baby. You can also learn more about preemies and support resources from their partner, the March of Dimes.

Baby Week will also include six specials, including Strange Pregnancies -- a look at three unusual pregnancies, including a woman with two uteri; Born on a Bad Day -- true and remarkable tales of moms giving birth during natural disasters and other precarious situations; and The 10 Most Unbelievable Births -- highlights of the most dramatic pregnancy and delivery stories ever told on Discovery Health, narrated by their very own Deliver Me docs.

To learn more, watch this Baby Week preview and check out the show line-up for more details.

They’ll also be chatting on Facebook and Twitter (using #BabyWeek) about your favorite baby moments, pregnancy stories, parenting tips and more, so be sure to check in with Discovery Health throughout the week. Also, be on the lookout for a few special celebrity baby pictures from some of your favorite Discovery stars.

You’re also invited to show your support for Baby Week with one of their Facebook profile pictures. Or take the Ultimate Baby Name Quiz and test your knowledge about breastfeeding in the games and quizzes section at
