Belly Painting for Expectant Mothers
What a special time in a woman's life when she is expecting a child. A world of change starts to evolve as she prepares for the newborn baby to come into her life. Among the changes are the physical transformations her body goes through as the baby starts to grow. Her belly becomes a visual announcement that she is an expectant mother. Belly painting offers her an opportunity to capture the moment of this precious time by decorating the womb with original artwork. The motif can be anything she desires from the theme of the baby's room to a seasonal decoration celebrated in the month of her due date. Although the paint will wash away, the memory and the photograph can bring a lifetime of smiles to her and someday to share with her child.
