Ana Paula Silveira and Alvaro Zermiani, both legally blind, were nervous when they found out Silveira was pregnant.
The Brazilian couple began to contemplate the magnitude of not being able to see their unborn child on an ultrasound and form that bond with their son, but with the help of modern technology, they were able to experience their baby in a completely revolutionary way.
«My major concern was not only not being able to see on the ultrasound, but I also didn’t know if someone else would really be able to describe to me what my baby looked like,» Silveira told InsideEdition.com.
Silveira and Termini were offered the opportunity to have a 3D-printed ultrasound, through GE Healthcare’s technology, at an institute in Rio De Janeiro. The man behind the technology is Dr. Heron Werner, a Brazilian obstetrician, and gynecologist. He would be helping the couple to meet their unborn child through an ultrasound that they could feel.
