Wholesaler Spotlight: Expecting Miraclesby Elizabeth MacDonald
Adrienne Talabisco, owner of Expecting Miracles in Newark, DE is sharing about her ultrasound boutique business and her love of My Baby’s Heartbeat Bear!
Adrienne loves that she meets expecting moms and their families in a relaxed environment and is able to take her time without any scheduling constraints. She includes other family members during elective ultrasounds where loved ones have a chance to see and bond with the baby. Every client is unique and special.
When asked how she helps calm the nerves of first time moms at a first ultrasound, Adrienne states, “I think the atmosphere and decor of my office definitely helps calm anxious moms. I chose to paint our office in a subdued yellow and neutral grey color throughout to give our office the feel of a neutral nursery. Our walls are lined with maternity shoots, 3/4D pictures of babies, framed sayings or quotes that speak to expecting moms and their families about new life. Our office is completely different from the sometimes cold clinically indicated medical ultrasounds expecting moms have to obtain which are ordered by their physicians.”
Throughout an appointment, Adrienne expresses that she is “almost always overwhelmed with joy.” She shares in her clients’ utter excitement and anticipation with each ultrasound. Whether this is a 2D Sneak Peek where couples are learning the gender of a new baby or if it is a 3/4D ultrasound, she finds herself sharing the same emotions of people who were strangers just seconds before.
Adrienne loves offering her clients My Baby’s Heartbeat Bear keepsakes. She says, “Heartbeat Animals offer comfort to those moms who are having pregnancy complications. I can get their baby's heartbeat recorded in case something tragic happens. But Heartbeat Animals also give siblings a chance to bond with the new baby before birth by giving them something tangible to feel included in with this pregnancy. Not only can they hold a Heartbeat Bear that represents their new brother or sister, they can listen to the heartbeat. The Heartbeat Animals are often given to soon-to-be grandparents who also share the excitement of this tiny new life! The grandparents get a chance to hear their unborn grandchild's heartbeat that they will eventually be able to hold, love, and spoil.”
Adrienne worked with a family last summer whose story is one to share:
“This was a triplet pregnancy last summer. Shane Simmons came in 6/27 for a gender reveal of triplets. They were going to do a gender reveal at 15 weeks (2 boy/1 girl). I received a phone call from Shane later in the summer (end of August) who said she was being admitted to high risk at 24 weeks because she was having complications (water broke with one triplet and one triplet was small) with the triplets and there was a chance she could lose one or all of the babies. She was interested in getting My Baby’s Heartbeat Bear for all three before she went into the hospital because she wanted something to remember them by in the event something tragic happened. I did do heartbeats for all three. Sadly she did give birth with in the next week and lost two of her babies, leaving the healthiest to fight for his life. Their due date was originally around Christmas 2018 and the surviving triplet was released from AI DuPont after spending 4.5 months in the hospital.

While being a wholesaler of My Baby’s Heartbeat Bear does produce a worth while boost in revenue, there is so much more that is taking place. As Adrienne has learned, this keepsake is something that every expectant mother cherishes.
