Follows the lives of five interconnected couples as they experience the thrills and surprises of having a baby, and realize that no matter what you plan for, life does not always deliver what is expected.
J. Todd Smith
A couple who is expecting their first child travel around the U.S. in order to find a perfect place to start their family. Along the way, they have misadventures and find fresh connections with an assortment of relatives and old friends who just might help them discover "home" on their own terms for the first time.
A young couple move into a new apartment, only to be surrounded by peculiar neighbors and occurrences. When the wife becomes mysteriously pregnant, paranoia over the safety of her unborn child begins controlling her life.
This is an excellent National Geographic documentary. It follows the development of a human girl all the way from conception to birth. It is clear and informative, and presents the subject matter in an easy to follow manner.
There is real footage of 4-D scans of the womb - the latest in scanning technology, which makes for much clearer images of the foetus - interspersed with computer generated images of the same.
The only bad point to note (and the reason I only gave 7/10), is that the second part is mostly a repeat of the first part. That is, if you have two parts, the first part being 50mins and the second part 47mins, then my advice is to play the second part from 28:00 on, as ALL of the first 28 minutes is contained in the first part.
