I’m curious to know who has watched this show and what your thoughts are!
It’s only available on Facebook, it’s a “Facebook Watch series” and there are 2 seasons.
In summary, they follow several couples and individuals on their pregnancy journey. All of them have a unique or different situation.
Two single, gay, best friends (male and female) decide to live together and have a baby together.
A young, unmarried couple, who are largely supported by a parent, accidentally become pregnant and ultimately decide on adoption.
A couple struggling with fertility for 9 years decide to try IVF.
A married couple find out they are pregnant and, one week later, they find out she has breast cancer and needs to start treatment ASAP.
A woman, who is 50 years old and single, decides to use anonymous donor sperm to become a mom.
A Mormon couple struggle with fertility and ultimately decide to use donor eggs to become pregnant, due to issues and damage to her eggs from medical conditions.
A woman with Cerebral Palsy, and her husband, become pregnant with their first child.
These are just a few examples! There are many others!
My thoughts -
I love the diversity and representation here! I really like the pace of the show and the stories!
Everything except the “interviews” are filmed by the upcoming parents or their friends/families on phones. I feel like there’s probably a bit less “producer” influence for staged scenes… But, on the other hand, more staged scenes by the upcoming parents. Which I think is kinda preferable, because they have more control over their story… Maybe…
Also, some of the “accidental” pregnancies probably aren’t an accident… Because why would someone apply to be on the show, if they’re not trying to have a baby
I guess part of why I bring it up is because I’ve decided to apply… But even if I’m accepted, I may not do it. I just feel like it doesn’t hurt to apply. I have a very unique situation that hasn’t been featured on the show yet, along with a medical condition that I’ve been very public about trying to raise awareness. It seems like a good opportunity… Potentially.
There are a couple situations where people are painted in a bad light… And I don’t want that to happen to me. I don’t know why it would be, but who knows… Ya know?
