The Movie

Homepage

You’re pregnant – Congratulations! Get ready for:

  • A 9-month emotional roller-coaster
  • More joy and worry than you thought you were capable of
  • Inappropriate questions and touching
  • Daily physical changes
  • Your heart bursting with love for a person you haven’t even seen yet
  • Always needing to pee

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.

“My husband and I met in our adolescence and I want to teach my child what Jose taught me while we were growing up, which is to be open minded about the world.”

“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.”
