“I thoroughly enjoyed my bump painting session with Loretta. She was friendly, chatty and extremely diligent in terms of how she created the image I asked for. I am thrilled to have experienced this opportunity during my pregnancy and would highly recommend Loretta to anyone wanting something a little bit different and special as a pregnancy treat.” – Jane


Your experience:
The ideal time for a maternity paint is 32 – 37 weeks. Feel free to get imaginative with your design, and send an inspiration picture or two through. If you don’t have any ideas, don’t worry! The possibilities are endless.  Make sure to wear something comfortable, then sit back and relax with a drink and some nibbles, whilst your baby bump is transformed. The duration of the paint sitting can depend on the complexity of your chosen design and ranges from 1.5 to 2.5 hours.

A photo shoot follows, once the paint is complete. From this, you’ll receive several high-quality digital images, suitable for printing. Most mums wear the paint home to show their loved ones. The body paints used are cruelty-free and vegan, non-toxic, safe for mum and baby and will wash off with soap and water.

Loretta is based in Birmingham and is happy to travel or for you to travel to her.

Get in touch at any time during your pregnancy to discuss preliminary dates and ideas. Bookings from 30 weeks +
