Pregnancy Denial: Facing the Unexpected

Every 6 hours in France, a baby is born from a partial or total pregnancy denial. This matter remains taboo, and stays the most mysterious and astonishing phenomenon encountered by science and medicine.

Three women and a man who have lived or witnessed a pregnancy denial will tell the story of these 9 months of silence, also talking about their lives after the denial. Through their testimonies, this film highlights a subject still unclear in the collective mind: how not to realize that one is pregnant, sometimes until giving birth.

Direction: Marion Vaqué-Marti 

Production: ZED for France Télévisions
