- Tina Fey and Amy Poehler star in NBC Universal’s new comedy, ‘Baby Mama,’ opening on April 25, about a business woman in her late 30’s dreams of becoming a mother, only to find out that she’s infertile. So, she “outsources” her pregnancy. Tina Fay says the film speaks to many women today. “I think there are a lot of women in my generation who are frightened about whether they have waited too long to have babies.”
- Frightened or not, there are a lot of funny things surrounding pregnancy and childbirth. Come on, admit it, you and your girlfriends have had some good laughs over things like perineal massage, horse-sized prenatal vitamins, baby proofing, and birth plans:
“Welcome to the birthing center. In this class we are going to help you new mommies and daddies– and mommies and mommies (*wink wink*)– prepair for that marathon of labor! Quick question before we start: How many of you are planning on doing natural childbirth? That’s a good show of hands; thats so great! You’re all so great! And how many of you are planning on using toxic Western medications to drug your baby for your own selfish comfort? Anyone?”
