During a pregnancy, the ultrasound is a magical step for the mother-to-be. A nappy brand has allowed a 30-year-old Brazilian woman named Tatiana Guerra to discover her future baby through a 3D ultrasound at 20 weeks pregnant.

Having been blind since the age of 17, she can’t see the images of her baby. During yet another medical visit, her doctor gave her the best gift: a cast of the features of her son. The ultrasound data was ultrasonically collected and sent to a 3D printer in the utmost secrecy.

The emotions are high when Tatiana is given the reproduction of the face of her son: 'I am your son,' reads the young woman in Braille.

'I’m so happy to meet Murilo…before he’s born!' says the ecstatic mother-to-be.
