Watch the moment a blind mother-to-be is given a 3D scan which allows her to feel a replica model of her unborn baby’s face
A three dimensional, printed ultra-sound has enabled a blind mother to see her unborn baby for the first time.
An advertising campaign from Huggies Brazil shows a blind mum-to-be given a 3D scan, which allows her to feel a replica model of her unborn baby.
As the mother is unable to watch the ultrasound, the 3D printed version lets her experience the features of the unborn child’s face.
The film, entitled “Huggies Presents: Meeting Murilo,” uses the tagline: “Every mom deserves to embrace each moment.” (YouTube / Huggiesbrasil)
The technology showing 3D models of unborn foetuses isn’t new, however, the ad campaign serves to show it in a unique way.

Watch the heart-warming moment Tatiana has the 3D scan and experiences what her unborn baby looks like.
Ms Guerra lost her sight at the age of 17.
She is shown arriving for an ultra-sound during her 20th week of pregnancy.
Her doctor describes what he can see.
But a 3D printer then transforms the ultrasound image into a relief of the baby’s face.
