“40 Weeks”: The First Documentary to Follow Each Step of Pregnancy
December 2nd, 2014

each step of pregnancyWomen get pregnant every day and now there’s a film that follows the real stories of several different pregnancies. 40 Weeks is the first unscripted documentary film to offer an intimate window into the week-by-week journey of pregnant women across the country. Christopher Henze’s 40 Weeks follows the diverse stories of 13 American couples from pregnancy announcement to birth. Finally, a real film that accurately documents the up’s and down’s throughout every week of pregnancy!

Big Belli has partnered with the Association of Women’s Health, Obstetric and Neonatal Nurses (AWHONN), HealthyWomen.org, and the March of Dimes in order to give you this spectacular view into the journey of over a dozen different pregnancies.

As we know, each week of pregnancy brings a new surprise (good or bad) and 40 Weeks is there to document every milestone and rough patch. Producer (and mom!), Dominque Debroux wanted to show the funny and stressful moments every woman experiences in her own unique 40 weeks of pregnancy. Get to know these women as they go through their own pregnancy trials and triumphs and learn about how their bodies and babies grow.

Not only does this documentary follow the interesting lives of couples, but it allows the viewer – moms and moms-to-be to reach out for information. The viewer will grow with each couple, gaining more knowledge about themselves.

Check out the trailer at Big Belli’s website!

40 Weeks will premiere on December 1st at the Angelika Film Center in New York City and will be coming to Boston on January 12th along with eight other locations across the country. If you’re interested in attending the premier, please email us at hello@supplet.com for an invite!
