Spotlight: Love at First Sight 4D
The business of scanning bellies not only brings joy to families everywhere, but sonographers and ultrasound boutique owners also love the experience.
Alicia May, Sonographer, Early Gender Specialist, and Owner of Love at First Sight 4D in Ontario explains just how grateful she is to work with pregnant women and families every day:
“My favorite part about my business is bringing families together one baby at a time! I am helping to create lasting memories and bonding experiences that parents will never forget. My job is so rewarding.”
The Ontario pregnancy culture tends to be a cold and sterile environment. Mothers typically must attend appointments alone, leaving their partners in a waiting room or at home. Not to share such a bonding moment as a family is heartbreaking, and Alicia was determined to give families another option. Investing in the highest quality technology and equipment, she opened her studio doors and welcomed mothers and their guests into her appointments. Alicia gave families the ability to see their babies grow while still in utero.
It didn’t take long for Love at First Sight 4D to attract families from all over the area. The calm, inviting, and celebratory atmosphere combined with the trusting relationships built during each session created the opportunity of expansion. What started as a small dream soon grew to two ultrasound studios with a third opening in London, ON this year.
Alicia also saw the value in becoming a wholesaler for My Baby’s Heartbeat Bear. The keepsakes supported her original goal of forging early family bonds and comforting loved ones throughout a pregnancy. When asked why she loves partnering with My Baby’s Heartbeat Bear, Alicia responded:
“I had a large family come into my studio with 4 older siblings anxiously awaiting to find out if they were going to be having a little brother or sister. They were all so excited and interested in the ultrasound. Each one of them got to choose their very own heartbeat animal, and they chose the giraffe, lamb, bunny, and cocoa bear.
After we recorded the heartbeat and put it inside the heartbeat animals, they got to hold them for the rest of the session. The youngest sister said, "I love this mommy; I'm going to keep this forever!" I thought to myself how she was just so sweet and cute! The parents were so happy that the kids could come and be a part of this journey with them.
I think it's so important for kids to bond with their new brother or sister and My Baby's Heartbeat Bears give us that!”
Offering a variety of Heartbeat Animals, Gender Reveal kits, Accessories, and package deals has helped her to surpass her business goals and plan bigger! Alicia strives to open Love at First Sight 4D studios throughout Canada to give every family the opportunity to see their baby grow.
Alicia’s clients boast about their experiences, as Alicia goes above and beyond for gender reveal requests, contacting bakers, friends, or family members to keep the secret and plan for the reveal.
While a simple ultrasound scan at a prenatal appointment checks the box with your doctor, you deserve the personalized care and support that Alicia and her team provide at each of her Love at First Sight 4D studio locations!
