A day in the life of a belly bump artist.

 
A day in the life of a belly bump artist.

A day in the life of Zoe – pregnant belly artist

"My name is Zoё, I am a local mum to two young children and Owner/Artist of Bournemouth based business - ‘Rock the Bump – pregnant belly and body casting’.

I found out about belly casting when I was pregnant with my second baby in 2013. I wasn't aware of anyone offering pregnant belly casting locally so got all the kit together so hubby and I could create one ourselves. As is often the case with DIY casting kits we just never got around to doing the casting before baby arrived. A year later I started to explore the idea of creating belly casts for other expectant mums and had some great training from Glenda, the owner of Precious Memories.  A few weeks later, Rock the Bump was born!

I relish the opportunity to work with women and their partners to create custom design, artistic pregnant belly casts that are personal to them, often incorporating artwork that evokes memories not just of their pregnancy but of the life and love they shared before the arrival of their precious newborn baby.

As a work at home with two under 5s (and number 3 on the way!) every day is different as I juggle to fit in my "bump work" (as my two little ones call it!) alongside everything else. Weekends are when I get the most time to focus on Rock the Bump, often seeing clients for casting sessions on Saturdays and spending time in the studio on Sundays getting messy - strengthening and smoothing casts, painting, finishing and preparing casts ready for clients to hang/display in their homes.

In 2015 Rock the Bump was proud to support the fantastic breast cancer awareness charity, CoppaFeel! and raised in the region of £500 creating boob casts at our "Hooray for Boobies!" event held in Bournemouth in September 2015 and at FestiFeel in October 2015. Rock the Bump continues to support CoppaFeel! with £5 from the sale of each Rock the Bump breast cast going directly to the charity. Rock the Bump also offer pre and post mastectomy breast casts. Breast casting can be therapeutic in so many ways, as well as great fun, memorable and romantic.

In 2016 Rock the Bump is looking to work with Bournemouth Hospital Charity creating pregnant belly casts to help raise funds to refurbish the counselling room and the reception within the antenatal clinic.

It's always a privilege to be a small part of a women's pregnancy journey. I love helping women to realise just how beautiful and awesome their bodies are and nothing does that better than a pregnant belly (or boob!) casting!"
