The Pregnant Concert is a live recording of a recital by American cello rock band Rasputina held at the Knitting Factory in Williamsburg, Brooklyn on September 13, 2009 (although the album cover claims it to have been 1909). It contains songs from previous Rasputina albums, as well as covers from a variety of other musicians and both Holocaust of Giants and Kinderhook Hoopskirt Works from their upcoming album Sister Kinderhook.

As the album title implies, frontwoman Melora Creager was pregnant with her second daughter at the time of the recording. The band asserts that "If you listen very carefully, you might hear Ivy singing with Melora.".[1]
