How to Deal With An Unplanned Pregnancy: Make a Short Film About It

When actor, model, musician, and longtime friend to GirlieGirl Army Amy Ferguson found herself unexpectedly pregnant, and on the verge of her life changing forever, she teamed with filmmaker Lindsay Stidham to tell her story. Together they set out to capture the strength of women everywhere.

Amy’s never been a traditionalist. She wasn’t the woman that always dreamt of being a mom, but when she faced an unplanned pregnancy with one of her oldest friends (who had also just experienced a tragic personal loss) something told her this was it. This baby was meant to be.

It turns out Amy’s lover was one sharp shooter, and getting pregnant after their first time together left them both to navigate falling in love under the cloud of lingering tragedy, and, yes, facing social taboos that exist when you don’t play by society’s rules.

I can’t believe this was me two weeks ago! And the tiny human that was inside is now with me on the outside. It must be so strange for him. Even though I’ve been born, it’s hard for me to imagine what Max is experiencing now that he’s out of the womb. I hope I’ve made his transition as smooth as possible. He is my everything. I finally understand unconditional love. ?thanks to @lucaspassmore for always making me look better than how I showed up and for capturing this once in a lifetime moment in my life. ?

A post shared by amy ferguson (@amyfergusonlove) on

As Amy’s baby was growing ever closer to making his entrance, they felt the ticking clock of documenting the extraordinary pain and pleasure that was the reality of this baby’s almost life. Amy bared her soul in this film, embracing the thrill and awkwardness of new love coupled with a changing body, and a still uncertain relationship.

These two women made this film for every mother and almost-mother who has ever felt inadequate, scared, overwhelmed, imperfect, alone, not “Facebook or Pinterest worthy,” or so far from the societal definition of “mom” that she’s writing her own.

They also made this film because every mom is a source of strength, awe, and empowerment. They made it because “mom,” and “almost mom” are the definition of true love. There is no right or wrong way to mother. There is only the path you forge for yourself and your own definition of family. Just in time for Mother’s Day, this is a sweet share for any Mom who isn’t perfect, and yet is completely perfect.
