A mother goes above and beyond for her daughter by helping her with artificial insemination in sMothered.
In tonight’s episode of the discovery+ show, 53-year-old mother Lisa goes above and beyond to help her daughter Lauren, 27, in her quest to get pregnant – by assisting in her at-home artificial insemination.
But for Lauren and her wife Laura Leigh, getting pregnant is a bone of contention: while Lauren is desperate to start a family, Laura Leigh wants to slow things down and wait for the right time.
Over a tense family dinner, things come a head for an emotional Lauren.
‘Well, currently it has been pretty stressful. It’s not working out between us two, we’re going to think differently,’ Laura Leigh says. ‘Taking a break is probably for the best right now.’

In classic father-in-law style, Lauren’s dad Kenny tries to break the tension, playfully quipping: ‘So what, are you saying that you have a low sperm count?’
But Kenny’s sense of humor does little to calm an upset Lauren.
‘I think it’s emotionally draining for the both of us each month, getting really excited about the possibility, and then when it comes out to be negative it’s just hard to take,’ she says, holding back to the tears. ‘I just feel like I have wanted a baby for so long.’
But little does Laura Leigh know that, with Lisa’s help, Lauren is taking matters into her own hands.
‘Laura Leigh doesn’t know about my plans to inseminate with my mom because I just don’t think that she will ever understand,’ she says. ‘At this point, I really feel desperate to start our family.’
The next morning, Lauren and Lisa put their plan into action. ‘My momma is so ready for me to be pregnant, I mean we talk about it all the time,’ Lauren says, as Lisa lays out the equipment needed to facilitate Lauren’s artificial insemination.

Despite making her mind up to go through with the procedure with her mother’s assistance, Lauren knows the risks involved by keeping her wife in the dark.
‘I definitely think that she [Laura Leigh] would have an issue knowing that it’s my mother doing this,’ she says. ‘I understand that it’s a bigger secret to keep from her, but I just want to give this a try, I just want to see; maybe my mother is the missing piece.’
While many mothers would take a back seat with such hands-on mother-daughter activities, Lisa feels privileged to be involved in helping her daughter fulfill her dream of becoming a mother. ‘I’m excited that I’m able to share this experience with Lauren, something most mothers don’t get to do,’ she says.

‘Okay, here’s the baby juice,’ she jokes, much to Lauren’s embarrassment. ‘Oh my God, don’t call it juice!’ she screams.
As the pair prepare to get things going, Lauren voices some last-minute nerves.
‘If Laura Leigh were to know that we were doing this or walk in or know what was going on, she would flip out!’ she explains. ‘She already thinks we’re too close.’

Laid down on the bed, Lauren prepares herself – physically and mentally – for her mother to artificially inseminate her.
‘Alright, keep still,’ Lisa says.
Despite the close bond the two share, neither of them know where to look as the procedure begins to take place.
‘I want to make sure we get it all in there,’ Lisa says, trying to fill awkward silence. ‘Don’t be stressed, you’ve got to think happy baby thoughts,’ Lisa continues. ‘Okay, I’m about to squirt in the baby juice.’
Thankfully, the procedure is over with quickly. But, if that wasn’t weird enough, Lisa leans into Lauren’s belly and whispers ‘swim fast little swimmers,’ in a last-minute attempt to egg the sperm on.
‘I think that our bond is stronger than the bond I share with Laura Leigh,’ Lauren reflects. ‘I love Laura Leigh to death but it’s just not the same type of bond.’
Now, all that’s left for Lauren to do is wait and contemplate motherhood – and let her wife know!
