Whether you have one kid or six, pregnancy is a special time in your life, when your body opens itself up and makes room for another. To be sure, there is something really special about Mama’s belly, the baby bump as it's often referred to. It's magical, it's a miracle, it can also be super uncomfortable. But despite the stretching skin, and the achey swelling joints, the way life grows inside (and shows outside) during pregnancy is worth capturing in all its rotund glory.
It’s in this spirit, that we found this company, which offers a unique service to pregnant women, really touching. Belly Deluxe
will sit down with Mama and create a beautiful porcelain cast of mama’s baby bump.
It’s a remarkable process with a touching end result. You’ll just have to watch to see, but we’ll give you the basics of how it works:
