Blind mom-to-be meets her unborn baby through 3D-printed ultrasound

“If you could touch him, would that let you know what he’s like?”

Most expectant mothers get a glimpse at their baby during ultrasounds. However, if you’re pregnant and can’t see, the experience of an ultrasound may be less profound.

However, a video posted by the Brazilian branch of Huggies, called “Meeting Murilo,” is showing the world how one blind woman was able to bask in the incredible first ultrasound moment — even if she doesn’t have sight.

30-year-old Tatiana Guerra has been blind for almost half of her life. She now primarily experiences the world through touch.

“If you could touch him, would that let you know what he’s like?” her doctor asks.

When Tatiana says yes, he presents her with a 3D-printed rendering of the ultrasound. Tatiana could touch the model and use it to “meet” Murilo in a way she otherwise couldn’t until his birth.
