DSC_0508

We are excited to be offering belly casting services to mamas in the New York City area or if you are unable to do the cast at the comfort of your home you can have it at our location. Our belly casting services and parties make a beautiful three dimensional memento that is uniquely you and a unique keepsake for Parents and Baby. 
Your belly cast will be preserved and viewed as one of a kind art piece that can be painted and embellished to suit your nursery or decor. Completed projects presents a wonderful, whimsical piece of art and an expressive symbol of love. An experience you don’t want to miss out on.

It is a simple but elaborate process, using plaster bandages. After the cast is molded it needs at least 24 hours for it to fully dry. You can decorate your belly cast or you can hire us to create a beautiful masterpiece for you. To achieve the desired cast, the pregnant mother is consulted on her preference of position, pose and style.  Petroleum Jelly is applied to protect the skin, followed by the belly casting materials which creates the form. The process takes about 30-50 minutes depending on how elaborate the cast is and an additional 10-15 minutes for the cast to set. The expectant mother can enjoy a relaxing foot massage while listening to soft music.

Invite your closest friends and family to be apart of the plastering process to make lasting memories while bonding with mom and baby.

When should I make my belly cast?

There is really no limitation. Generally, we recommend a belly cast be made between the 30 and 38 weeks of pregnancy.

What should I wear?

You can wear something comfortable and preferably old since it may be ruined during casting process.  Casting are made on bare skin or an old bra may be worn.  Wearing a bra will give you added lift and support. For the lower part of your body, you can wear a pair of old panties, boy shorts or jogging pants.
