"40+2 weeks, a documentary with a humorous undertone, examines how contemporary women relate to childbirth, what options they have to choose between in making their decision, and what leads more and more women to decide to give birth at home instead of the security of giving birth at the hospital.
It's a personal story, as the author herself is the film's main character. She becomes pregnant for the first time at the age of 35. In parallel with the main character's somewhat Borat-like adventures in the diverse world of services, packages and birth methods available to pregnant women, the story of two very different women unfolds."
