Blind Mom Sees Baby Before It's Born Thanks to 3-D Printing (Video)

A blind mother was able to "see" her unborn baby after doctors printed a 3-D sonogram image that allowed her an opportunity to learn her baby’s face by touch.

The video of Tatiana Guerrero, 30, of Brazil, getting her sonogram and being surprised by doctors with the 3-D image is part of a Huggies diapers #CountingtheDays campaign.

In the video, which is called “Meeting Murilo,” Guerrero is asked by a doctor, “If you could touch him, would that let you know what he's like?”

“Yes,” she said, and the doctor handed her the image, wrapped in a cloth. “That’s your son,” he said. “See if he feels the way you think he does.”

Words on the 3-D printed image say, “I am your son,” and Guerrero laughed and cried as she stroked the rendering.

On YouTube, where the video has racked up 1.2 million views, people were raving about technology used to do something amazing like let a blind woman “see” her baby.

“Very moving. A good use of technology,” one person wrote, and another added, “safe to say this made me cry.”

The video went viral, spreading many tears and joy.
