"I had a very good and enjoyable experience at before the stork. The owner was a very sweet and patient lady. I went there when I was 31 weeks. I have noticed that my baby smiles and looks the same as in the 4D picture. She does the same things that she did when we performed the ultrasound and I was very happy with the results. If I were to get pregnant again the future for sure I would go there and nowhere else."
"I am writing this letter to thank you for the wonderful experience that Before the Stork provided to my husband and me. This experience was one of the most meaningful and important experiences of our lives and we are very grateful and thankful. My husband and I really appreciate the quiet atmosphere and the fantastic customer service that you guys provided.
"When Aidan was born the first thing we did was compare the ultrasound pictures to what he looked like 'for real'. It was absolutely amazing to us that he looked exactly like we had seen him at 27 weeks. The 4D ultrasound was given to us as a gift from my best friend, we probably would not have done it otherwise, but I am so glad we did because it was the most beautiful aspect of my entire pregnancy! When we arrived for our appointment with 10 people we were greeted with a warm welcome and they were glad to simply add more chairs to the room. The room was more than I expected. I was especially grateful for the warm, soft lounge chair I got to lay in, not like the cold, hard, plastic ones in the doctor's office!! The lady who performed the ultrasound was so kind and accommodating. We asked to see his toes and she did her best to find them. We asked to see his pee pee and she accommodated there also! I loved all the little touches that may, otherwise, go unnoticed such as, the Celine Dion music playing in the room, the extra screens for all to see, the warm ultrasound gel, the steps to help you onto the table, and the comfortable bathroom! The ultrasound itself was unlike anything that I expected. I am not sure now, looking back, what I expected, but it was amazing. My husband and I were able to connect to our baby in a way that is almost unexplainable. There he was, before our eyes. I must have been unprepared for it because the moment I saw him I became breathless and cried all at the same time! I got to see him yawn, suck his thumb, and even grimace. He became more human to us after that day. We even went home and started to prepare the nursery because we now knew whom we were preparing it for! You never know what the connection is going to be like when it is your first child, but we were able to get a sense of it that day. Now that our Aidan is here we refer to our ultrasound often, especially when we see "the 27 week pose". That is what we call his pose now that he is here and that is what I am sending you. Thank you so much for allowing us to glimpse into the tranquil world our Aidan lived in for 9 months. The experience at Before the Stork is one we will never forget and we make sure all share it with us when we show them the DVD we got! Nothing can prepare you for the moment your child takes his first breath, but the Before the Stork gets you very close to that feeling by putting a face to the person growing inside you. Thank you again."
"Our Before the Stork 4D experience was one of the most exciting experiences my husband and I had during my pregnancy. We couldn't believe how much technology has changed these days and how they were able to capture such an amazing image of my son while he was still inside my stomach. He's 4 months old now but we still show his 3d picture to everyone and they all are astounded at the image's resemblance to him. I would definitely recommend this to every expecting parent that I know and I would definitely do it again on my next pregnancy! Thank you so much for this experience."
"I am a teacher in Yorba Linda and became very excited after passing by your newly opened store. My husband and I had tried for two years to become pregnant and after two years to the day...our miracle had come to us. We were pregnant! To be able to see our little guy inside of me before we had been blessed with his entrance to the world was an experience that I couldn't wait to have. I called you immediately and made my appointment for 29 weeks. ( I might mention that I was only ten weeks along, but needed to have my appointment scheduled.) I waited and counted the days until this 4D Ultrasound. My husband and his parents, me and my parents were all in attendance. We were welcomed by your friendly staff and couldn't wait to see this boy moving around. We entered the ultrasound room and everyone had a comfortable place to sit...you accommodated everyone which made me feel wonderful. I was comfortable and my husband got to sit up by me by my side. The doors closed, the lights dimmed, the music started, and up on the wall was an image of my son...moving and opening his mouth. I couldn't hold back the tears. This was an amazing moment for us. The technician couldn't believe how big he was already and since it was my first, I didn't really know what was big or not. So, I thought...oh boy, I am going to have a big baby. Little did you know, he was born on his due date and was a whopping 10 lbs. 7 ozs. Your technician was absolutely correct. HE WAS BIG! I can't explain all the emotions that went through me that day, but the whole atmosphere made me feel on clouds. I waited so long to see this baby and to get a SNEAK PEEK was so overwhelming. I loved the experience and I am now working on baby two and as soon as I am ten weeks, I will be calling you again to schedule another appointment. Thank you so much for allowing us this rewarding experience with your kind, comforting staff. We will see you soon!"
"We really enjoyed our experience at Before the Stork! We couldn't wait for our little girl to arrive. Before the Stork gave us the opportunity to see into her little world, months before she entered ours. The staff was professional and made us feel very comfortable from the start. My husband was very excited when he learned that he would be watching the "show" from a comfortable couch on a large flat screen TV! I was so relaxed on the comfortable bed that my daughter didn't really have a whole lot of movement so the staff graciously offered me a glass of juice! That woke her up! We were given a CD with 28 pictures and a DVD that combined still shots, 4D movement and a beautiful selection of lullabies! We can't wait until Abby is old enough to watch herself in the womb! What an awesome experience and priceless keepsake!"
"I just want to start by thanking all of you at Before the Stork 4D because I felt so connected to Carter after seeing him for the first time in 4D. I has such a rough pregnancy and was so sad, but the 4D ultrasound gave me something to look forward t. I was counting the weeks until I coudl finally see him at 29 weeks. Your staff was amazing! I was pleasantly greeted and given some information to fill out. THe environment was spa-like and cozy. I felt very secure and safe about what I was going to have doen. It is such a peaceful and relaxing space. The quote on the wall brought tears to my eyes and for the frist time in my pregnancy I realized how much I loved my unborn baby. When it came to my turn, baby Carter was not cooperating. I was so upset because her I was and had waited so long to see him and nothing. The staff suggested I go eat, especially something sweet and come back in an hour. So I did. What a difference!!! Carter was ready to say hi and show off. It was a great experience and I instantly fell in love with him on that day! It was so emotional and heartwarming. What an experience to meet your unborn child. I also enjoyed being able to share the experience with my husband and family. They loved it. My husband finally felt like he was connected to our son because he wasn't experiencing the pregnancy, so he felt left out. This was a wonderful experience and I have recommended several of my friend to do it.
"I had a great experience with Before The Stork 4D. We (my husband and I) went with my grandparents and my then 14- month-old daughter. The technitian was very understanding of us having such a young and boistrious child in the room. Baby-to-be was not cooperative and wasn't moving out of the position she was in - her face smashed into the placenta and she was breech. After trying for nearly 30 minutes to get her to move, they rescheduled us for 3 days later. That morning, she was in a much more lively mood and gave us all a great show. My grandparents were thrilled to be apart of something so special and it gave all of us a great memory of the impending birth of our little Christmas surprise."
"We had an amazing experience at Before the Stork. At 26 weeks, my husband, myself and my 4 year step-daughter were able to see the most anticipated new addition to our family. We could hardly believe our eyes as we watched her move and saw her face for the first time. From the time we visited Before the Stork until the time she was born, we eagerly looked at her 4-D pictures and tried to imagine her being here in person - when she finally arrived on January 27th, we were so thrilled to meet her !! When looking at her newborn pictures and comparing them to our 4-D pictures, we were amazed. We knew our daughter all along, saw her face for the first time at 26 weeks and held her for the first time on January 27th. It was a wonderful experience for our family and we would highly recommend Before the Stork to anyone who wants the 3-D / 4-D ultrasound experience. Thanks so much for the wonderful experience at Before the Stork. The staff was wonderful as was the ultrasound tech, room, ambiance, etc."
