Raising Arizona (infertility)
Orphan - The first 5 minutes there is a still birth.
It's a thriller/suspense/horror movie.
Did you hear about the Morgans? (infertility)
Up close and personal (Infant death)
I know it will sound a little crazy, but....
Kill Bill, vol. 1 - (m/c, infant loss)?
I saw this movie just a couple of months after losing DD#1 (no HB @ 19 wk u/s, followed by a traumatic D&C, not given the option to deliver) and the scene where Uma Thurman comes out of the coma caused me to have a breakdown and have to leave the theater. I thought I'd include it even though it's pretty old because it's just not one you'd think would be touchy like that.
freida.. with salma hayek (sp)
very graphic mc and stillbirth scenes
Personal space is overrated.
Books to avoid: Outlander series (births, infertility and miscarriage)

The Cider House Rules - abortion(s)
Pan's Labyrinth - pregnancy trauma/complications; overall demented
Beowolff - pregnancy
Premonition (Sandra Bullock) - pregnancy
Bones - pregnancy (surrent season); some episodes are of infant/children death
Just saw this and thought I'd add a novel...
A Thousand Splendid Suns by Khaled Hosseini, a main character has multiple miscarriages. It's extremely poignant and heartbreaking (the whole novel is-it was too sad for me to even finish for other reasons). It had been 2 years after my mc but I lost it.
Cathy, Mommy to Genevieve and Agnes
Trainspotting-Infact Death-VERY disturbing
♥ ♥ ♥ ♥
The Help has a character that has had 4 m/c.
Alicia (26) Nate(26) 6/7/08 TTC since 5/2009 M/C 12/09 Stage 4 Endo Dx 10/10 Lap & Hysteroscope 11/10 Lupron injections 12/10-2/11 year infertility tx no luck...On to adoption to grow our family!!! 5/25 R joined our family @3months old!!
It's a random movie that's on Netflix instant watch now. It's all about infertility and STC and failed IVF, and...
and even though I hoped they succeeded in the end, they didn't. They didn't give up and it's more about coming to terms with it and a bit of hope, but they still didn't succeed by the end.
It's not a well known movie, so this warning may be moot, but I just thought I'd warn anyone else here that, like me, just happens across it on Netflix late one night!

The Other Woman- Infant loss. I bawled during the whole movie.
@mommaduck I thought it was 5. One Johnny knew about and four he didn't. I loved her character soooo much. She was amazingly innocent and untainted by the times. I can't wait to watch the movie.

The tv show 'rescue me' has one scene involving child death that is very graphic. I'm not sure which season or episode but the entire series revolves around loss of loved ones .
There is also a m/c scene in rescue me.
Hi everyone, its been awhile! When I went through my m/c last year, a friend put a nice gift bag together with funny movies, and I thought it was wonderful. I'm doing the same now for a friend who just started m/c-ing, and I got a couple of movies, and just want to make sure that I haven't overlooked any pg/baby/mc scenes...
When Harry Met Sally
Does anyone remember if these have any potentially upsetting scenes?
I'm pretty certain that When Harry Met Sally is fine. I can remember quite a bit about that movie, but I'm not sure about Bruce Almighty.
I think that's such a sweet thing you're doing. So thoughtful!
