What service do you offer that you just LOVE and think everyone needs?
We do 2D, 3D, 4D, HD Live and Gender Determination. My favorite is the gender reveal because it’s exciting to find out. However, if everybody were in the position to do two or three of these elective ultrasounds in a pregnancy, I would highly recommend that. Our Double Take package gives you the opportunity to come in as early as 14 weeks to find out your baby’s gender, then you come back again around 30 weeks to see how much your baby has developed, see facial images, and see the cute things your baby does.
We have single, double and triple visit packages. I think the double visit packages are my favorite because you get the best of both worlds. And three visit packages are fantastic.
We also have heartbeat animals to record the baby’s heartbeat in a cuddly stuffed animal. It’s great for military families to take with them when they deploy. Military families may be eligible for a discount too. Plus we stream the entire ultrasound, so deployed dads and grandparents that are not in town can participate too.
What got you started in this business?
I saw my granddaughter in the womb. Ten years ago when they were expecting her, we went to an ultrasound session similar to this one. I was just expecting the traditional doctor ultrasound – 2D fuzzy pictures that you couldn’t even understand anything. And when I saw her face, I just got emotional and was amazed at the technology. More important than the technology I was amazed that I could see her see her face.
My mind works in funny ways when I go to businesses: I often tend to look for business opportunities. I thought, I want to do that! I had a corporate job traveling and selling advertising all over the world. But I decided that “when I grow up,” this is what I want to do. So a couple years after that, we opened shop. We have been in business over 9 ½ years!
