A company called 3D Babies is offering to turn your 3D ultrasound scans into 3D printed real-life sculptures of your unborn fetus.

The company will take your 3D or 4D ultrasound to create the 3D model and then will 3D print the fetus. The cost to turn the ultrasound into a 3D model and finally 3D print the fetus is $600. Then 3D Babies will package the 3D printed fetus in a satin-lined wooden box and ship it directly to your door.

"Imagine holding your baby before he or she is born." writes the company, "This is a great way to share the excitement of your new baby with family and friends. Your 3D Baby will be a treasured family remembrance of your pregnancy and new baby."

The baby sculpture comes in three sizes: 8 inches ($600), 4 inches ($400), and two inches ($200) and comes in three skin tones. Customers that order a second 3D Baby can get 10% off with the promotional code LOVE.

Customers can also get 3D prints of celebrity babies. Baby North West, the child of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West is available for $250.

3D Babies states that the motivation for this is, “We are the parents of two wonderful little girls, ages 3 and 1. We love being parents and have been cherishing our time with our girls. Every time another family member or friend has a baby, we are reminded of our first few months with our girls. More importantly, we are reminded of how much we have forgotten about that time. In an attempt to hold on to those memories, we created a way to make a 3D figurine of what our baby looked like at that time.”
