Pregnant Bellies Are Celebrated
At one time, pregnant women hid their changing bodies under maternity clothes with a tent-like silhouette. Now, expectant mothers are more willing to show off their changing silhouettes. This pregnant belly art gallery will show you some examples of how women are celebrating their shape.

Women may carry their babies high or low, but the silhouette of a pregnant woman is still fascinating.
