Founded in 2000. We strive to create the most beautiful, medically accurate portraits of real babies.
Each baby sculpture is a life size portrait replica of a real baby from 0-40 weeks of pregnancy equal to 2-38 weeks of life.
Our models and dolls have been used for pro-life education, medical education, medical research, proof in court that these babies are real and deserve legal representation, prenatal education models, kangaroo care teaching models, grief therapy models and celebrations of real living preemie miracle babies.
These models are visual tactile proof of that human life exists at the moment of fertilization as evidenced in medical and scientific texts. The artist started this work after the loss of a child through miscarriage and during the high risk life threatening pregnancy which put her on bed rest, to show her young daughters (who were ages two and four at the time), how developed and human their tiny twin brothers looked and what they could do while they were developing inside their mommy.
Each model is originally hand sculpted in polymer clay, then cast in collector quality resin. The process takes many hours and the dolls represented on this site have taken the artist 27 years to research, develop and create.
The artist is a retired full time elementary art teacher and does not make a living making these dolls.
