Companies are taking the excitement of the sonogram one step further.

Expecting parents can see their unborn child on an ultrasound, but what if you could hold your pre-born baby, too?

Thanks to some new technology, parents can now hold a 3D print model of their little one.

The Russian company Embryo 3D uses ultrasound images to create a 3D model of unborn children. Seeing one’s child on an ultrasound for the first time is always a miraculous moment, but these models are taking it a step further.
