11 Best Movies about Pregnancy and Babies

by Erin Dower

Cravings, contractions, spit-up, and diaper changes – what better fodder for a cinematic comedy than pregnancy and new parenthood? Whether you're expecting a baby or just love a good comedy, sit back and enjoy others clumsily navigating pregnancy, birth, and beyond.

What to Expect When You're Expecting


This is a movie spinoff of the popular What to Expect book series. The all-star cast, including Cameron Diaz, Jennifer Lopez, and Elizabeth Banks, play five interconnected pregnant/expecting women and their fumbling hubbies or partners. The movie plays out a lot of those pregnancy clichés we've seen before (i.e., laboring woman swearing at frightened husband), but does it well and has some fresh fodder, too — poking fun at uber-trendy baby names, awkward older dads-to-be with trophy wives, and other cringe-worthy aspects of modern parenting.

Rated: PG-13
