I got the opportunity to screen 40 weeks earlier this week and all I gotta say is… “I have baby fever!!!” Oh my goodness. I have it bad.
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 all the changes you are. Journey through the week-by-week milestones and information about pregnancy while discovering the community that you are now part off.
The women in 40 Weeks are so relatable, and I think that’s why it’s such an awesome film. Their homes are not edited and magazine perfect. They don’t spend hours getting dolled up before filming themselves. Heck, these chicas are talking about going without sex because of doctor orders, they show their swollen feet, they invite us in to their baby shower, they talk about what they’re doing to prevent stretch marks, and they talk about the trauma that hits them when they’re pregnant – like getting cancer. These females are strong. They are honest, and that’s why 40 Weeks is a film that we can relate to and enjoy.
Although 40 Weeks has a lot of sponsors, it doesn’t come through in the film. Everything is very organic. For example, Dr. Smith’s is a corporate sponsor of this documentary on pregnancy, yet you won’t be bombarded with ads for their amazing products. Side note – Dr. Smith’s products are totally amazing. I used them with my babies, and I only wish that they had their diaper rash spray back then.
40 Weeks premiers the first week in December in limited markets, but you have the opportunity to attend a screening in cities across the country.
