Now Dads Can Experience Pregnancy Too

Future dads can experience the sensations related to pregnancy, feeling the baby as it moves and kicks. The diaper company Huggies and a team of US researchers created a pair of pregnancy bands for expecting couples that replicate any baby movement felt by the mother on a matching band for the father. 

The belt placed on the woman's belly is connected to a second belt positioned on the man's abdomen. The system, filled with electronic sensors and LED lights, transmits in real-time the baby's movements to the father. The pair of pregnancy bands was created solely for a Huggies advertising in Latin America, which shows real couples trying out the bands in a Buenos Aires hospital. The soon-to-be dads are both emotionally and virtually touched!

What is your view on the coronavirus?


Koert van Mensvoort: The virus makes us aware of other lifeforms with other perspectives, desires and needs. It also teaches us that we are one humanity. These viral invaders don’t discriminate on the basis of nationality, race, income, social status, political or sexual preference. We are together and must work together to overcome. Stay safe.
