Procedure



The Casting Process

The casting procedure is usually done 2 - 6 weeks before your due date, sooner if you carry big or are expecting more than one baby. The entire casting process takes approximately 45 minutes to 1 1/2 hours - depending on how much of your body you plan to cast. Most women are unclothed to get a more accurate replica of their body. However, wearing undergarments is an option as well. Just before the start of the casting process, you are asked to apply Vaseline or another lubricant to your body where the plaster-cloth will come in contact. The lubricant creates a barrier between your skin and the plaster-cloth, so that when it hardens it can be removed easily. As the warm plaster-cloth is applied it is smoothed to blend the plaster and conformed to your body contours. All this is done while you are seated comfortably in a supported position.

The casting material will begin to harden on your body as Debra covers the rest of your torso. Ideally, you stay as still as is comfortable and breathe normally. Cracks from breathing, laughter or the moving baby are normal and can be repaired easily once the cast is removed.

To remove the cast, Debra gently breaks the seal around the edges with her fingers, holds the cast firmly, and carefully removes it from your torso as you wriggle out of it. Once it is off your body it is supported while it dries further. To make a cast that is "ready-to-hang" typically takes 1 - 2 weeks. Depending on how you want the product finished, it may take longer.



Soothing and Comforting

Women describe the procedure as soothing and relaxing. The atmosphere is warm and comforting. Peaceful music is played and lightly scented candles are burned. Most women compare it to a pleasant massage.
