About the Film

When culture recognizes only two identities, how is pregnancy navigated for those who don’t experience themselves as simply female or male? Cyn Lubow’s 85-minute feature documentary, A Womb of Their Own, explores pregnancy across the trans-masculine spectrum. You’ll follow the stories of charismatic, funny, thoughtful individuals and couples as they establish their own unique gender as non-binary masculine people, develop their definition of family, grow a baby in their bodies, and birth, chestfeed and parent their children.

About the Filmmaker

Cyn Lubow is a psychotherapist and filmmaker as well as the birthing parent of a 23 and 21 year old. She was inspired to make this film because she wanted to understand better her own experience of gender, which seemed to defy all cultural expectations of male, female or even transgender. She wanted to help people feel safe being whatever gender they are without having to conform to rules or endure criticism, including that imposed by themselves or the LGBTQI community Cyn spent three years making this film and is currently attending film festivals, universities and groups of birth professionals and queer people who have invited her to screen it. This is Cyn’s second film.

What Viewers Are Saying

Here was the film that I was missing throughout my pregnancy. This film is a much-needed counter to the compulsory femininity often heaped on expecting parents of all genders.” --Charlie King-Miller

I love it. It's beautiful, thoughtful and tender.” --J. Wallace Skelton

I just love your film, the people, the voices, the style. You really did such an amazing job of capturing these stories brilliantly.” --Willy Wilkinson, MPH

​It's totally awesome in terms of how it deals with all of the different permutations of how we do gender. And fat-positive too. This is an important film, and does a really fantastic job of challenging the gender binary.” --Linda/Lindo Bacon, Author of Health at Any Size: The Surprising Truth About Your Weight
