WHAT TO EXPECT WHEN YOU'RE EXPECTING is a comedy about various couples facing the joys and uncertainties of bringing a child into the world for the first time. The film was classified '12' for one use of strong language and moderate sex references.

The BBFC's Guidelines at '12A'/'12' state 'The use of strong language (for example, 'fuck') must be infrequent'. There is a single use of strong language, which occurs when a woman experiences pain as she goes into labour. It is not said with aggression and is not directed at anybody.

There are various references to conception and to the role of sex during pregnancy, as well as references to body parts in the context of women being pregnant. References are made to 'breasts', 'tits' and 'vaginas', as well as to 'having sex'. There are also discussions about circumcision. There is a sequence in which a couple are seen leaning back against a car as they prepare to have sex, although nothing further is shown. The sex references occur within a light-hearted, comic context and are not particularly graphic or crude. The Guidelines at '12A'/'12' state 'Sexual activity may be briefly and discreetly portrayed. Sex references should not go beyond what is suitable for young teenagers. Frequent crude references are unlikely to be acceptable'.

The film also contains some milder bad language, such as 'damn', 'goddammit', 'hell', 'butt', 'shit', 'bastard', 'ass', 'crap', 'dick' and 'bitch'. There are also some drug references, although drug misuse is not glamorised or condoned.
