New Reality Show Is Sort of a Pregnant Version of ‘Biggest Loser’

Apr 26, 2012  •  Post A Comment

A new reality show from TLC combines elements of “The Biggest Loser” with shows focusing on pregnancy, Entertainment Weekly reports.

"Obese & Expecting" tracks four morbidly obese women who are also moms-to-be, the story reports. The show will seriously examine the issues that surface as the women attempt to survive pregnancy while dealing with health issues surrounding their weight — and while confronting the potential effects of their weight issues on the unborn babies.

TLC said in a statement: “These women are challenging the perception — and the odds — of obese pregnancies, as they become moms, no matter their size or complications.”

"Obese & Expecting" will bow May 17 as a one-hour special and a potential back-door pilot. A companion show also focused on pregnancy issues, “Birth Moms,” will also air that night. “Birth Moms” follows three women in a Utah adoption facility struggling with the decision on whether to give up their babies.
