Women get pregnant every day
finally a documentary
joins them on that journey.
You’re pregnant – Congratulations! Get ready for:
Are you early in the process? Late? Did you miss something? Ack! What was that? Was that normal? What is normal? What’s happening to my body? And my baby?
Let’s take a breath. 40 Weeks is a movie that answers these questions and gives you a window into the lives of a group of real women dealing with the same changes you are. Journey through the weekly milestones and information of pregnancy while discovering the community you are now part of.
40 Weeks has partnered with the Association of Women’s Health, Obstetric and Neonatal Nurses (AWHONN), HealthyWomen.org, and the March of Dimes to provide expertise and support as you journey through your pregnancy from announcement to birth.
We invite you to get to know these women as they reach pregnancy milestones, learn about their bodies, and reach out for information. We follow each of them throughout their pregnancy and see how they deal with the normalcies of the process and also face unexpected setbacks.

“I really want to know what color eyes she has or if she has my lips or Jared’s lips. You know, what color hair is she going to have? It’s all of those little things I can’t wait to find out.”
"It's true what they say, a baby can bring a family together"
“Every time we go to the doctor’s office they’re like, 'Oh my God, it won’t sit still!' So it’s definitely my baby because Mauricio and I don’t sit still very long.”
