Belly Casting by Your Birth

Heather is an award winning artist who’s been crafting custom belly casts for over a decade.  Give her a call or send an email to schedule a free consultation and get started on planning your perfect keepsake.

Quality Construction

I only use hospital and artist grade plaster strips – not the thin strips found in lower quality do-it-yourself kits.  This is a work of art that will last your family for generations.

Custom Finishing

Do you have an unfinished belly cast hiding in your closet?  Contact me and we can discuss a plan to transform your work into a beautiful memento suitable for display.

Makes a Great Gift

Bellycasting makes a great shower gift.  I can set the cast at the baby shower or provide a gift certificate for the new mom.


Packages for Every Budget

Frequently Asked Questions

How long does it take?

The entire process takes about two hours but you will only need to be standing for about 20 minutes.  I do all the preparation and clean-up.

What should I wear?

All you should wear is a pair of old panties and socks that can be discarded afterwards.  I realize some women may be modest, but I do not recommend wearing a bra.  You will also want a bath towel or a robe for after we remove the cast.

What kind of plaster strips do you use?

I use medical grade plaster strips.  These are NOT the same you will find with inexpensive do-it-yourself kits.  They are much creamier and make a more rigid and solid cast.

Are there any allergy concerns?

Possibly, but most likely not with the cast itself.  Let me know if you’re allergic to petroleum products or latex.

When should I set the cast?

The best time is about 36-39 weeks.  That makes for the best looking shape and will allow plenty of time to deliver the cast after your baby is born.

How long does it take to finish the cast?

It takes a couple of weeks.  The cast needs to fully dry before I can begin working on it.  Also, with the Canvas Package the additional painting and mounting adds a few days to the process.

Is there anything else I should know?

You may want to have your partner or a friend available to take some photos.  Also, you will be messy and your shower can get pretty slippery when you’re getting cleaned up so an extra set of hands to help would be good.
