Technological advances, together with changes in the law and social attitudes, mean that more and more gay and lesbian couples are finding a way to have a family. This film follows four couples through the trials and tribulations of trying to make babies: from attempted conception to the mayhem of life with children. So what does having a baby mean in practical and legal terms for a homosexual couple? How will the extended family cope with the new family dynamic? And is society really ready to accept gay parents?
