Belly Casting

Belly casts, a 3-dimensional plaster sculpture of a woman’s pregnant belly/body, helps you celebrate and honor your pregnancy, your body and the passage into motherhood. The cast can be decorated in infinite ways or left in its natural state, and many women choose to have it customized to match their homes or baby’s nursery decor so that it can be hung on a wall and displayed for years to come.

Thank you Mama’s Dawn Hajnos has helped many women celebrate their fertility and express their creativity with a belly cast for more than 13 years.

Pregnancy is a very special yet fleeting time in a woman’s life. Belly casting is the art of capturing a moment in time. A belly cast is a work of art capturing the bond between you and your unborn baby. It is also a relaxing and soothing time which can help solidify the connection between you and your baby before birth as you view the space you have made for your child.

When is the best time to do a belly cast?

Belly casts are often made between 34-38 weeks of pregnancy. This is a good time to really capture the fullest shape of your pregnancy.

Is belly casting safe?

Absolutely! It is constructed of high quality, hospital grade, non-toxic plaster casting strips that are safe for mother and baby.

Where does the session take place?

Thank You Mama has a private and comfortable space, but arrangements can be made for a cast to be done in the privacy of your home. The session takes about an hour and a half.

How much does a belly cast cost?

Belly cast prices start at $150. Dawn can be commissioned to further decorate your belly cast with its own unique look. The options are endless!
