Many women feel bloated, stressed and unattractive during their pregnancy. The growing baby brings with it the inevitable weight gain, the clothes no longer fit ….
In our society there are still norms that are subtly transmitted through all forms of media. Needless to say, pregnant women can never, should, or want to relate precisely to this beauty craze.
The veneration of pregnant women, childbearing women, the fertile ones in our time seems to be just a “morally outdated” end of cultures by the past. The fact is, however, that women are becoming mothers today and every single day of their pregnancy represents a conscious and unfortunately very quiet reflection on the original nature of women.
Today we will no longer philosophize a bit, but instead use many beautiful pictures to show the unrepeatable and unique aspects of pregnancy, which can be immortalized in an artistic way for all time. In today’s article we would like to deal a little more with the last weeks of pregnancy and take a closer look at the trendy event “plaster cast baby bump”.
In the last weeks of pregnancy, the baby bump is fully developed. And it is precisely at this difficult time, when the expectant mothers can hardly wait for the delivery and the sleepless nights seem endless, that the idea of the artistic impression of the abdomen comes into its own.
The baby bump is carefully laid with gauze bandage and coated with damp plaster of paris. The cool stiff fabric soothes the pregnant woman and she feels even more cared for than usual. After the mixture has dried, the plaster cast is removed from the skin.
You can take impressions of specific areas of the body, or of the entire torso. In the end, the creative idea counts. The plaster cast can serve as a beautiful keepsake forever and can be individually decorated according to your own taste.
