Plaster cast in pregnancy: duration and procedure

Plaster bandages are used for the plaster cast of the baby bump during pregnancy. Beforehand, the baby bump must be thoroughly greased with Vaseline so that the plaster cast can be easily removed later. During pregnancy, oiling is generous anyway. The plaster bandages are stretched tight and placed on the baby's stomach and upper body. On request, a shoulder and/or a hand can also be included. This looks particularly distinctive and beautiful. The soft plaster is smoothed out as much as possible during the impression so that the structure of the material disappears. The plaster cast takes about half an hour to harden before it is removed from the body like a shell. Now the baby bump plaster cast can dry and harden in peace to be processed further. Plaster bandages from the pharmacy are not well suited for a plaster cast for the baby bump. They are too coarse, too heavy and fray easily and often do not contain enough plaster in the fabric.
