We hope to better educate viewers on the pros and cons of making this choice by using real life examples to dispel home birth myths and rumors.

Veria TV will launch three new shows in 2010 embracing a diverse range of topics: wild outdoor cooking, fun and clever ways to keep children active and natural childbirth.
Hot on the Trail takes viewers on a cross-country wilderness adventure, teaching them how to identify wild foods and create amazing dishes that are packed with nutrition and bursting with flavor – all in the middle of the great outdoors. From the tropical paradise of Hawaii to the Black Hills National Forest of Wyoming to Bridal Veil Falls State Park of Oregon, wild foods expert Sunny Savage shares her vast knowledge of exotic plants and her boundless passion for nature’s spectacular beauty.
“Sunny leads us through fields, forests and even swamps in search of the most stunning array of forageable foods from wild berries to mushrooms, acorns to pokeweed, cattails to prickly pear,” says Eric Young, VP of Production at Veria TV. “She then prepares dishes using these amazing wild foods right where she finds them. Cooking over an open campfire or with a solar powered oven, she creates a culinary experience unlike anything you’ve ever seen before.”
Veria TV will also launch their original program Fun to Grow On, which features brilliantly fun, fast-paced and easy to execute ideas for helping parents and caregivers get children up and moving.
“Fun to Grow On revisits classic activities, introduces new activities and reveals fun mental exercises that will engage parents and kids,” says Young. “We encourage viewers to submit suggestions for activities as well as wholesome snacks children can prepare for inclusion on the show.”
Labor of Love follows the real life experiences of midwives and expectant parents who have chosen a natural approach to childbirth. The “reality-style” program follows these midwives and their clients during their nine-month journeys toward birth.
“This series delves into modern day midwifery, challenges the status quo of the birth process and provides an alternative for one of the most natural processes of human physiology,” says Young, producer of Labor of Love. “We hope to better educate viewers on the pros and cons of making this choice by using real life examples to dispel home birth myths and rumors.”
These three new shows join an exciting lineup of health and wellness shows already broadcasting on the Veria TV network. With new channel position 218 on DISH Network, in addition to channel 162 on Verizon FiOs, Veria TV hopes to spread its message of “living life…naturally” to even more viewers in the new year.
