Baby Joy 3D/4D Ultrasound, based in Silver Spring, Maryland, allows anxious couples to learn the sex of their baby in the comfort of their own homes.
It's a given that you have to go to a doctor's office for an ultrasound.
However, Baby Joy 3D 4D Mobile Ultrasound, based in Silver Spring, Maryland, allows anxious couples to learn the sex of their baby in the comfort of their own homes.
By taking the equipment out of the doctor’s office and through a clients’ front door, the company’s founder creates the opportunity for people to customize the experience.
The ultrasound machine can be hooked up to a television so, should the expecting parents prefer, a whole roomful of family and friends can share the joy.
Since opening up for business in late November, Baby Joy has been booked every weekend.
The type of event is up to the client, be it an intimate gathering or a blowout baby shower.
It has to be on a weekend though, as the woman in charge still works at a hospital Monday through Friday.
The process takes between 15 and 30 minutes. How long it lasts and what you take away from it depend upon the package you sign up for.
For 150 dollars, you can have the gender verified, hear the heartbeat and get 8 printed pictures, including black and white and color.
