The hilarious Tina Fey and Amy Poehler star in a film about a working woman trying to have a baby with a surrogate mother. It's sick how we're both in so love with Liz Lemon from 30 Rock.
You won't even miss the dialogue because the real scenes from the lives of four different babies from far corners of the world during their first year are totally captivating. I love the contrast between the babies in Japan and US who are kept so clean and those in Mongolia and Namibia who play in the dirt with livestock.
Classic horror movie by Roman Polanski about a mother and her baby. So creepy!
Skip the first one in this trilogy - the second stars Rosanne Barr as the sassy infant sister!
Perhaps one of the best on this list, Natalie Portman gives birth in a Walmart and along with her best friend, Ashley Judd, makes a home for her child in the heart of America. Also a great movie for tips on what not to name your baby!
Indie flick about teen pregnancy.
Adrienne Shelly directs Keri Russel in a lovely film about a story of a pregnant waitress. Sweet story and stylistically, very good.
A Cohen brothers movie makes the list with one of their best about two ex-cons who steal a baby.
Set in an apocalyptic society of the future when humans can no longer have children.
Documentary explores China's reproductive policies.
Maya Rudolf from Bridesmaids stars in a movie about road tripping in America while pregnant.
