Emotional Ad Gives Blind Mom-To-Be The Chance To 'See' Her Baby's Ultrasound

Looking at ultrasound photos of their unborn children can be a very emotional experience for parents-to-be, and for this mom, that first reveal was particularly powerful.

30-year-old expectant mother Tatiana Guerra lost her sight when she was 17, so when she went in for an ultrasound at 20 weeks pregnant, she could only ask her doctor to describe what her unborn son Murilo looks like.

As captured in this short film from Huggies Brazil, the doctor surprised Tatiana with a 3D-printed sculpture of her baby based on the ultrasound image, so that she can touch and better visualize the tiny face.

"Huggies Presents: Meeting Murilo" is part of a pregnancy-centered ad campaign called #CountingTheDays. As the captioning at the end states, "Every mom deserves to embrace each moment."

Truly amazing.
