The series offers a voyeuristic glimpse into the lives of wealthy people who think very highly of themselves, but cannot seem to find the time or the confidence to prepare for their baby's arrival on their own. While Pope offers some perspective about the realities of pregnancy, childbirth, and becoming parents, the real focus of the show is on the expecting parents, many of whose priorities are centered on things like hiring focus groups designed to test potential baby names, and having a nursery without color or baby toys to avoid clashing with their apartment's trendy décor.

The show does highlight some more serious issues, like the impact parenthood will have on a marriage, and Pope's own battle with infertility. But outside of the occasionally serious storyline, the show makes it hard to take these expecting parents seriously. Unfortunately, it also raises questions about the kinds of values these parents will be passing on to their children.
