Delve into the extraordinary world of women devoting themselves to lifelike dolls
My Fake Baby delves into the lives of women who spend large amounts of money on life-like baby dolls.
Known as a reborn baby doll, they’re are meticulously designed to resemble a human infant and can be created with beating hearts, human hair, simulated chest breathing, tiny veins, baby fat and even an umbilical cord.
Loved and nurtured by their mother’s like they are alive and kicking, they’re taken on walks, cuddled, and even have their nappies changed.
In this documentary, we meet doll reborner Jamie, a mother of four who spends her time as a doll artist to help fulfil women’s dreams of being a mother by producing their newborn to their requirements in her front room.
