Pregnancy ~ Stages of Life

In the sims 4 there are 7 Stages of life that your sim can go through, from baby to elder and can even come back as a ghost. Your sim will unlock many new and exciting things as their life goes on. Even though Pregnancy isn’t a stage of life there is so much to it I felt it needed it’s own post. It should be noted that if you have the Get to Work expansion pack then you can have a baby at hospital, if you don’t then you will only have the option to have baby in the bassinet.


Your sims life begins at the very beginning in pregnancy, although this is not a life stage I felt it needed it’s own post, as there are several unique interactions you can have as a pregnant sim. Young adults and Adults can become pregnant no problem. While there is a slim chance an elder can become pregnant. A sim that is pregnant cannot age up, they also cannot use exercise machines while in the 3rd trimester.

Getting Pregnant

Once you have used the interaction ‘try for baby’ you can go to the toilet a select ‘take pregnancy test’ this will tell you if your sim is pregnant. Otherwise wait a day and then they will start to show. The sim will be pregnant for about 3 to 5 days.

Sims can also fall pregnant from alien abductions. This is how a male sim can become pregnant.

Sims can also use the phone to either ‘call adoption agency’ or ‘have science baby as single parent’, these cost §1,000 and §1,200 to have done, your sim in both cases will go off lot through a rabbit hole, and appear with a baby (or age chosen from adoption) back onto the lot.


If you want to have a girl with no cheats then eat strawberries and listen to pop music if you want a boy Eat carrots and listen to Alternative music.

When your sims find out they are pregnant they will tell the father, and as the tummy grows over the next 3 days the sim can Invite others sims to feel the baby bump.

Maternity/Paternity leave

The Sim can also have time off work when pregnant in the third trimester for 3 days, this is the same for the dad sim. When it is time for the sims to have family Leave a Notification will pop up saying ‘[blank] can now have family leave’. to do this go to the phone go to the work tab and then chose to take family leave.

Giving Birth

Once you have the notifications to ‘gone into labour’ either click the basinet in your sim home to have the baby at home of click the sim and chose ‘have baby at hospital’. You can send the sims alone or join them. You can then chose who goes with the sim. If you are not on the same household and you are playing as the dad you will get a notification to tell you your baby has been born.

If you chose to have the baby at home the pregnant sim will go to the basinet and moan and shout out and then the baby will be born. If the father is there then he will panic behind the sim in labour.

If you chose to have the baby at the hospital (If you have get to work expansion pack) then the a doctor sim will show your in-labour-sim to the surgery table, where they will pull all manor of things out of your sim (pictures down below). You sim will deliver their baby and it will appear next to you in a glass bassinet. As soon as the baby is born the mum will walk over and cuddle baby. Then the baby will disappear as soon as you go home the bassinet will be placed on the lot.

If you want to move the bassinet just go into the build/buy mode where you can pick it up. If you have the Baby at hospital then you will also receive a birth certificate.
