What is Pregnant and Platonic?
BBC Two’s Pregnant and Platonic is a documentary exploring the phenomenon that is co-parenting.
If you thought that co-parenting was just something for separated couples, think again!
The programme spends an hour looking at different women and men who want to explore having a baby in a less traditional sense.
The potential parents aren’t in romantic relationships and some even found each other on co-parenting apps.
It's in the pipe line…
