Women have been marveling at ultrasounds of their unborn children for decades. That option was not available to Tatiana Guerra, who has been blind since the age of 17. Her doctor could describe how her baby looked, but it was not the same thing.
Sponsored by Huggies Brasil, as part of an advertisement, technicians took the ultrasound image of Guerra’s infant and fed it into a 3D printer. In due course, a printed image of the unborn baby was brought for the expectant mother to hold, to run her hand over his facial features, and to “see” for the first time.
