During pregnancies, ultrasounds exams, which let both parents and doctors view the unborn child, are truly special moments. 30-year-old Guerra, however, wouldn’t have been able to see the ultrasound – she lost her sight at 17 years of age. With the help of a mobile 3D-printing station provided by Huggies, however, the doctors at her hospital surprised her with a bust of her unborn son Murilo.

The heartwarming mix of technology and love is part of a larger campaign by Huggies Brasil providing other mothers with the same opportunity.

“See if he feels the way you think he does…”

“I’m very happy to meet Murilo. Before he’s born”
