Maternity: Before Birth Bonding

Can't wait nine months to see your baby? Drop by Before Birth Bonding in South Burlington for one of their 3- or 4-D ultrasounds. With a 3-D picture, features such as skin, eyebrows, noses and ears are visible in the still, four-color image. With 4-D, expectant parents watch a video of the ultrasound and see their baby's real-time hiccups, kicks and thumb sucking. "It's just so special that you get a glimpse of what your child looks like," says Hollie Barclay, a maternity nurse at Fletcher Allen Health Care in Burlington who opened the franchise business with her husband in November. The ultrasounds are nondiagnostic and not covered by insurance. Barclay said the experience — watching him or her move while hearing the heart beat and blood woosh — establishes an early bond between parents and baby. Another service BBB offers is a Sonostream, which allow family members separated by distance to watch a live, 4-D ultrasound via the internet.

Before birth bonding: Packages from $99 to $219. 4049 Williston Road, Suite 1, South Burlington. Info, 497-0872, beforebirthbonding.com.
