SILVER SPRING, Md., Oct. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- Discovery Health is going back into the delivery room with the anticipated second season of the hit docu-series, DELIVER ME. The breakout series follows the careers and personal lives of Drs. Yvonne Bohn, Allison Hill and Alane Park -- best friends who became partners in a demanding Los Angeles OB/GYN practice specializing in high-risk pregnancies. Premiering Tuesday, November 11 at 10 PM (ET/PT,) season 2 of DELIVER ME offers a riveting look into the tragedies and triumphs that these women experience in the delivery room-and in their personal lives.
DELIVER ME demonstrates the doctors' incredible connections with their patients, to whom they can intimately relate. From high-risk pregnancies, to adjusting to unexpected complications, to struggles with infertility; Drs. Park, Hill and Bohn have been there personally and professionally. DELIVER ME shows the doctors' human sides, detailing the triumphs and struggles in their personal lives-and how they lean on each other outside of the delivery room. The series provides a glimpse into their home lives and their roles as parents. As working moms, the doctors try to be real-world superwomen but sometimes feel the strain of seeking balance in their busy lives. Viewers will see the doctors bring their families together outside of work to socialize and support each other while trying to squeeze their busy home lives into their incredibly ambitious schedules.
In 10 hour-long episodes, DELIVER ME showcases more of the intense emotion, drama and excitement that Drs. Park, Hill and Bohn face daily, touching on some of the most relevant health issues confronting pregnant women today. In their demanding medical practice, which specializes in high-risk pregnancies, there's no such thing as a routine day. The premiere episode alone introduces viewers to three challenging patients: first-time mother Noi, who finds her plans for a natural birth derailed by an ailment that won't go away until she delivers; 24-year-old Megan, who must abandon her energetic lifestyle to make sure the twin girls she's carrying get the nourishment they need to grow; and Stephanie, who finds her fourth pregnancy imperiled by her severe diabetes.
Season two of DELIVER ME captures the joy and sorrow the doctors experience as they find themselves sharing some of the best-and worst-moments in their patients' lives.
DELIVER ME is produced for Discovery Health by Banyan Productions, in association with Eric Schiff Productions. Eric Schiff is executive producer. For Discovery Health, Alon Orstein is executive producer.
