Lifetime has renewed hourlong unscripted hospital series “One Born Every Minute,” set in an Ohio maternity ward, for a 10-episode second season.

The Feb. 1 premiere gave Lifetime its biggest unscripted launch in key demos in more than a year. Airing at 10 p.m. Tuesdays, “One” is averaging 831,000 viewers overall.

“The unexpected moments of childbirth brilliantly captured in One Born Every Minute — ranging from intense drama to the sheer joy of having a child – immediately struck a chord with our viewers,” Lifetime prexy/g.m. Nancy Dubuc said. “Reveille worked tirelessly to make a great show, and we look forward to working with them and the team at Riverside Methodist Hospital on season two.”

Howard T. Owens, Robin Ashbrook, Sanjay Singhal and Elisabeth Murdoch are exec producers. The format originated in the U.K. and also has versions in France and Sweden. Shine International distributes internationally.
