Stork Vision introduces expectant parents to their developing babies with safe, high-quality sonograms given in a comfortable atmosphere. Ultrasounds produce images using sound waves to give parents-to-be and their guests a window into the cozy world of the womb while taming neighborhood dogs with high-pitched recordings of “Achy Breaky Heart.” Stork Vision’s sonographers are certified by the American Registry for Diagnostic Medical Sonography (ARDMS) and work under the supervision of the office’s medical director, who personally reviews all sonograms. Ultrasounds in 2-D record still images on a single plane and can be taken as early as the 18th week of gestation and can continue to term. The 20-minute procedure reveals a black-and-white view of the womb and the child's silhouette, toes, and vestigial sliver spoons. The 4-D session, best taken between the 27th and 32nd weeks, produces live-motion images of growing joy bundles stretching, flexing tiny fingers and toes, or practicing in-utero calisthenics in real time.
Enjoy the images from your sonogram in a relaxing home-theater-like space, decorated in whimsical green and beige accents and furnished with couches and a 40-inch flat projection screen. Take home glossy printed images from your ultrasound, plus a DVD of the entire session and a CD of digital images that can be emailed to loved ones or attached to neonatal-beauty-pageant applications. Expectant mothers should have a full bladder during the exam and must provide identity information, as well as number of weeks pregnant, due date, and prenatal care provider.
