3D-Printed Fetuses
Hiro-o Ladies Clinic Will Create Resin-Cast 3D Model of Your Unborn Baby

Forget those blurry ultrasound pictures—an expecting mother living in Tokyo can now get a 3D-printed fetus of her unborn child. Yes, the Hiro-o Ladies clinic is now offering pregnant patients a resin-cast, 3D-printed model of their fetus for 100,000 yen (about $1,300).

The clinic has been working with the 3D printing firm Fasotec to create these 3D-printed fetuses, or ‘Tensi no Katachi’ (Shape of an Angel), as they call them. The fetuses are printed in different shapes and sizes—the video shows how you can even print out a mini fetus to be used as a cellphone charm—and they are all surrounded by clear lucite, which mimics the womb’s amniotic fluid. Further, clients can choose whether they want the entire baby’s body cast or just a single body part (as if toting around a printed fetus wasn’t strange enough!).
