As though expectant parents didn’t already have enough to worry about, there’s apparently one more thing you need to do.
Top UK parenting video website Channel Mum is predicting that 2016 is the year 3D-printed casts of foetuses really take off.
Although the mementos have been around since at least 2014, Channel Mum is tipping 2016 to be their break out year, with a quarter of British parents apparently wanting one.
I am imagining that the other three-quarters are, like me, still struggling conceptually with the question.
So, what is a 3D-printed foetus?
The “baby sculptures” are based on ultrasound images of your baby, and depending on where you get your pre-birth baby cast, they can be fully formed or just a head and shoulder bust.
And they are pretty creepy… right?
Look at their tiny little squishy faces. I’m not creeped out, not AT ALL.
