SILVER SPRING, Md., Nov. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- With the world abuzz of the news of his second pregnancy, Thomas Beatie tells the definitive story of his first pregnancy this Tuesday on Discovery Health. Discovery Health presents the only documentary featuring professional footage of Thomas and his wife, Nancy, through the final weeks of his first pregnancy, the landmark birth of their first child and their eventual return home. PREGNANT MAN premieres Tuesday, November 18, at 9:00 PM ET/PT on Discovery Health. In addition, an encore presentation of PREGNANT MAN will air the following day, Wednesday, November 19, at 10:00 PM ET/PT.

PREGNANT MAN provides the only all-access look inside the everyday household of America's most unconventionally conventional family. Originally born female, Thomas, 34, underwent multiple medical treatments to biologically, socially and legally re-identify as a man. After marrying, the couple decided to start a family, but Nancy was unable to have children. Faced with this reality, Thomas made the unprecedented decision to suspend his testosterone treatments in hopes of becoming pregnant. Following successful artificial insemination, he gave birth to a healthy baby girl in June 2008.

Since announcing Thomas' pregnancy on national television, the Beaties have become a worldwide media obsession. Seeking to satisfy an insatiable public curiosity, journalists from countless countries have requested interviews and pictures of the family. The Beaties have ignited nonstop conversation and interest among everyday people from all walks of life -- some extremely supportive of the family, and others outraged at what they interpret as disregard for familial and societal norms.

In PREGNANT MAN, Thomas and Nancy welcome viewers into their idyllic suburban world in scenic Bend, Ore. Before Thomas' pregnancy, the Beaties looked and acted just like any other married couple in the neighborhood -- but once the world learned of Thomas' news, their charming Pacific Northwest town became the center of a global media storm. Constantly pursued by the press, Thomas and Nancy are barely able to leave their house to go to work each morning. Meanwhile, their neighbors are left to ponder the couple next door that is both drastically different yet strikingly similar to them. PREGNANT MAN is an engrossing examination of family, gender and tolerance in America today.

PREGNANT MAN is a co-production of September Films and Discovery Health. Sara Kozak is the executive producer for Discovery Health and Sheldon Lazarus is the executive producer for September Films.
