New technology is now giving visually impaired parents the chance to ‘see’ their unborn baby.
The innovative scans use 3D printing to create a model of the unborn child letting expectant parents see through touch.
Polish firm In Utero 3D have created a technology which allows 3D models to be made from ultrasound pictures.
“We do not manipulate ultrasound images, we do not idealise a baby’s face, we only port it to another data storage device,” says the group.
The service will soon be available to women outside of Poland giving expectant mums all over the world this amazing opportunity.
“I was pleased to listen to the beating of his heart, but so far I could not see him,” said one dad-to-be.
The models are made somewhere from the 18th to the 30th week of pregnancy and can take as little as four hours to print.
