A US company is offering expecting mothers a life-size 3D replica of their unborn baby.
The company, 3D Babies, uses 3D or 4D sonograms to create a doll that resembles the baby while he or she is still in the womb.
The fetus figurines are available in three sizes: life-size (20 cm), half-size (10 cm) and mini (5 cm).
Parents can choose from one of two positions depending on whether they want the baby’s gender to be clear.
They can also choose the doll’s skin tone – light, medium or dark, ‘New York Daily News’ reported.
“Our ultimate goal is to bring a smile to the faces of parents, grandparents, and other family members as they recall the day that they met their little one,” the company said.
“This product will become a treasured family heirloom,” it said.
This isn’t the first time 3D printers have been used for prenatal products. In November 2012, a Japanese company started making 3.6-inch white fetus models inside a clear block meant to resemble the mother’s body.
