While most mothers get the chance to actually see their unborn baby on an ultrasound, that’s not the case for blind moms-to-be, until now. Click to watch the amazing video of one visually impaired mother seeing her unborn child via 3D picture!

Technology can do amazing things, and this video proves that once again. One blind mother-to-be, Tatiana Guerra, went in to her ultrasound appointment hoping the doctor would be able to explain her unborn baby’s features to her. What she got instead, was much, much more.

Blind Mom Meets Unborn Baby With Amazing 3D-Printed Ultrasound Picture

Want to know how a diaper ad can bring you to tears? Well, in this video called “Meeting Murilo,” which was posted by the Brazilian branch of Huggies, one mother gets more than she could have ever hoped for during her routine ultrasound appointment.

Tatiana Guerra is a 30-year-old mom-to-be, who lost her sight when she was 17, was 20 weeks pregnant at the time of the exam, according to CNET.

It only took once sentence for our hearts to explode, “If you could touch him, would that let you know what he’s like?”

Tatiana was then given a 3D-printed version of her baby’s face with the words “I am your son,” spelled out in braille alongside of it. And there goes the waterworks!

The 3D printing was handled by the digital design folks at The Goodfellas, according to 3DPrint.com, while photographers Lucas Tintori, Rodrigo Westphal Galego, and Fábio Kenji were the ones to capture the appointment on film.

The technology isn’t new, but this is a wonderful way to put it to use, right?

Thanks Huggies for reminding us all that, “Every mom deserves to embrace each moment.”
