Woman Takes Maternity Photos with Live Bees on Her Belly

Bethany Karulak-Baker’s maternity photoshoot is going viral as photos feature her exposing her bare belly to about 10,000 live bees.


Karulak-Baker is a beekeeper and wrote about the viral photoshoot on Facebook.

“Here are my maternity photos I promised to share. I wasn’t stung once. The queen is tethered to my belly inside of a cage. We just dumped the bees on me and they naturally began to beard. Don’t worry, this was approved by my doc. This is roughly 10k bees. Cheers, everyone!”


While the photos were shared across the internet with many questioning her reasoning, Karulak-Baker explained that she suffered a traumatic miscarriage and that the photoshoot had a deeper meaning.
