You Get What You Pay For…

I recently had a mom call inquiring about pricing for a Baby’s Premiere 3D/4D Ultrasound. After giving her the rundown of all of our packages she let me know that because she was on a tight budget and her mom and grandma were paying for it together she had to shop around to get the best price. I said no problem and let her know that at Baby’s Premiere we will beat any local competitor’s price by $10.

A few hours later, I received a call back from the same mom who said, “I called around and you have the best prices.”  She let me know that she couldn’t believe one place she called was offering a similar 20 minute session for $150.00 versus our price of $75.00. She said she told the person who answered the phone about the big price difference and that person’s answer to her was, “You get what you pay for.”

But she is absolutely right; you get what you pay for. You see, at Baby’s Premiere, we are an eight year old established business; you may notice that our local competitors have opened within the last year. This means we have an 8 year long referral base of former clients, doctors and other businesses in the prenatal arena. In our studio, we have seen well over 10,000 families. We have a modest office which has served its purpose for us through the years and if our walls could talk they would tell you of all the smiles, laughter, tears of joy, and screams of excitement that happened here. Families meet here to view their miracles, children get to see their new baby brothers or sisters here for the first time.

At Baby’s Premiere, the focus is on mom and baby, not the furnishings. We didn’t spend a lot of money on making a fancy studio or paying a high rent to put pretty pictures on a website. Because of these things, we don’t have to charge astronomical prices to make families happy and give them the amazing experience of seeing their baby in 3D/4D.

So the owner of the other place is right – you get what you pay for. And at Baby’s Premiere, you are not paying for our start-up costs, our exorbitant rent or Pottery Barn furnishings. You are paying simply for the opportunity of an amazing bonding experience between the life that grows within you and the ability to share it with those you love.

Who is the Ultrasound Technician Performing my 3D/4D Ultrasound?

If you are thinking about coming to Baby’s Premiere for a 3D ultrasound, you may find yourself wondering about our ultrasound technician team and whether or not they are as qualified as those you would see in a hospital or doctor setting. Though we do not do diagnostic scans, we are professionally owned and operated and believe in using only trained obstetrical American Registry of Diagnostic Medical Sonography (ARDMS) certified ultrasound technicians. That means you can rest assured that the sonographer you see during your baby bonding experience is certified in Diagnostic Medical Sonography.

What Kind of Ultrasound Education Do They Receive?

Just like the ultrasound technicians you see in your doctor’s office or the hospital, our sonographers receive extensive training in medical sonography. They have each studied human physiology and anatomy and received hands-on training with the technology itself. By doing so, our ultrasound technicians are able to learn thingSonogram-Technicians like positioning techniques and how to get the most quality images possible for you and your family.

Our ultrasound technicians are professionally certified and have passed the sonographer exam given by the American Registry of Diagnostic Medical Sonography (ARDMS). While attending school, they usually complete clinical internships where they receive significant on-the-job training from current professionals in the field. Many take continuing education classes upon graduation and while working so they can ensure they are knowledgeable and up-to-date as a medical sonographer.

Did My Sonographer Choose to Work with Pregnancies?

Finally, sonographers must choose a specialization before completing their degree. That means that each of our ultrasound technicians is there because they want to be and because they have a passion for obstetrics and gynecology ultrasound. They are excited to share in the amazing miracle growing inside of you and even more excited to help you start the bonding experience before your baby is even here.

If you have any questions that we haven’t answered here, please don’t hesitate to call us at (201) 880-5006 or comment below. We would love to hear from you and look forward to scheduling your 3D ultrasound today!

The Popularity of Gender Reveal Parties: Hosting a Party at Baby’s Premiere

The popularity of gender reveal parties has grown tremendously over the past couple of years. In 2008, the first baby reveal party was uploaded to YouTube and in 2009 and 2010, only a handful followed (Source). However, between November 2011 and April 2012 over 1,800 gender reveal videos were shared on the popular video website.

Why have gender reveal parties gained so much popularity in recent years?

For one thing, couples say they are a great way to incorporate the entire family into the event. Since today’s “share all” generation would be posting the information to Facebook or Instagram, why not throw a party and make it really memorable? Others say it is just a nice way to share the experience with those you love and not just some stranger in a cold medical facility.

Gender Reveal Party Ideas

There are tons of gender reveal party ideas on various websites, including the ever popular Pinterest. Some of the most popular ones include giving the baby’s gender to a close friend or family member and having he or she fill a box with blue or pink balloons. The expectant parents then open the box together and find out their baby’s sex, along with everyone else at the party, based off of the color of the balloons. Another popular gender reveal is having your 3D ultrasound technician call a specified bakery with the gender of your baby so that a cake, cupcakes or even cookies can be made with a special pink or blue filling to let you know whether you are expecting a daughter or son. Many Etsy shops have even popped up selling various decorations or knickknacks to use for the big gender reveal. Everything from invitations to napkins to lollipops can be bought to help make the day that much more special.

Why Should You Consider a 3D Ultrasound?

Being pregnant is such an amazing gift and with the availability of 3D Ultrasounds, you can make your pregnancy even more memorable. A 3D Ultrasound is a great way to see your unborn child up close and personal. Long gone are the days of wonder and anticipation of giving birth in order to determine the gender of your baby and who he or she looks like. With today’s technology you can see your baby boy or girl before he or she even exits your womb. Does he have his daddy’s nose? Mommy’s lips? Well, you can actually see all those things, and more, when viewing your baby through a 3D Ultrasound.

3D Ultrasounds really show just how far technology has come. Even as recent as 10 years ago you probably were not given an ultrasound unless there was a cause for concern during your pregnancy. Nowadays, however, women are given ultrasounds quite frequently during a pregnancy in order to see how the baby is growing, make sure the estimated due date is correct and, if the couple chooses to, learn the gender of their unborn baby. Having the ability to see your baby and know how he or she is doing really helps to ease your mind as a parent and makes you feel that much more connected. This is especially true for the fathers because they don’t get to experience the pregnancy the same way the mother does.

When you see your baby for the first time, it truly is a magical experience and one that everyone looks forward to after finding out they are pregnant. 3D Ultrasounds are even more special than the 2D Ultrasounds that most OBGYN’s continue to use because they really allow you to see the details of what your baby looks like. They also allow you to hear your baby’s heartbeat and really encourage parents because they help build up the excitement they are already feeling that much more. By seeing little Johnny or Sally’s face, parents are really able to build that connection because they know there actually is a little person growing inside there. 3D Ultrasounds just make the experience that much more intimate and real. Plus, they are fun because once your baby is born, you can compare his or her photo to the ultrasound pictures you had taken while in utero and see how much they really did show! Isn’t technology amazing?
