Double Pregnant is author Natalie Meisner’s light hearted, poignant and informative true story of two lesbians who want to have a children. For a variety of reasons, one being that Natalie’s wife is a woman of color who was adopted into a white family, the couple decides not to take the anonymous sperm clinic route. Natalie and Viviën want their children to have some connection to their donor if possible. Taking matters into their own hands leads the couple to a series of often hilarious “dates” with potential donors, all of whom have widely different opinions on how the donation process should go and also of what this new, twenty-first century version of a family will look like.
