Last year, Facebook Watch! released a brand new series which followed 15 diverse couples and singles throughout the dramatic and exciting nine months of pregnancy.
Hosted by Friends star, Courteney Cox, who narrates and provides commentary in the 20-part documentary series, 9 Months is an emotional journey highlighting different experiences and stories from families across the United States.
The series shares stories of families that often go untold, giving viewers an unfiltered look at pregnancy struggles and successes across a range of families.
Now, the 9 Months with Courteney Cox is back for its second season, premiering on May 11 — the day after Mother’s Day — and new families will experience not only the unique ups and downs of pregnancy but also navigate the final months during the coronavirus pandemic.
From couples battling infertility to life-threatening illnesses and disabilities, this season, there are ten stories of varying backgrounds, including 28-year-old twins Tiesha and Dinesha, who live together and are both pregnant with boys with the same due date.
Charisse, born with cerebral palsy and ataxia is also featured, with her disabilities making her pregnancy even more challenging than most as she struggles with balance and motor functions.
And then there is Merrill, a woman surrogating for her best friend, Alexa, who has an inoperable brain tumour and a husband deployed in Germany for the US Army.
Alongside the series is the 9 Months with Courteney Cox Facebook Group which was formed to provide a safe haven for parents and future parents to connect and talk about pregnancy and parenting.
Members of the group are encouraged to post their own stories to inspire one another and to help give advice to new parents and expecting families.
Watch 9 Months with Courteney Cox on Facebook Watch with new episodes dropping Mondays and Fridays AEST.
