Moms are turning their babies’ ultrasound images into nail art

ultrasound

Baby’s first picture has taken on a whole new meaning thanks to ultrasound machines. Now routinely performed, ultrasounds show parents their children while they are still safe inside the womb. The images can be printed and many parents like to frame them or put them in their baby’s album. Now, some moms are getting creative and carrying their babies’ first pictures around 24/7 as nail art.

The new trend has been all over Instagram — precious babies featured proudly on their mothers’ hands for the entire world to see, black and white swirls and strokes forming the profiles of sweet babies. It’s a total celebration of life for these moms. And for some, it’s a way to remember the beloved babies they lost to miscarriage.

This manicure has been a long time coming. After three years and numerous fertility treatments, my hubby and I finally conceived in April. On May 30, my heart was broken when I found out my baby was no longer living and growing, and he was taken from me the next day. I lost all inspiration as I struggled with the grief. I learned how to love him and his brief life and move forward with renewed hope. I love you jelly bean, and seeing you on my nails makes me smile ❤️ #miscarriage #pregnancyloss #infertility #pregnancyandinfantlossawarenessmonth #onceamotheralwaysamother #angelbaby #ihaveasoninheaven #ultrasound #sonogram #sonogramnails #ultrasoundnails #nailart #idomyownnails #freehandnailart #nailfie #instanails #suckitjamberry
