New Baby Photos

Tips for a great photo shoot:

What to wear? Bring a solid black, brown, or grey shirt for you to wear in the photos. They usually photograph baby in your arms and solid colors look great in both color and black and white and don't take the focus away from the baby.

What to bring? You may bring a favorite baby blanket, stuffed animal, or piece of clothing. If you don't want to bring anything in, don't worry, the white hospital sheets make perfect backgrounds.

How about family members? Friends, family and siblings are welcome to stay and be a part of the photos. However, if they aren't present when we arrive to take the photos, we typically can't wait for them to arrive.

3D/4D Ultrasounds

Make your special moment even more memorable with 3D/4D ultrasound imaging at Dewitt Women's Health, Okemos Women's Health or Lansing Women's Health. Once you welcome your little one into the world, you'll spend a lifetime making and capturing memories-from your baby's very first steps to the proud day he or she graduates college. But now, with the help of advanced 3D/4D ultrasound imaging services, you can capture memories before your baby is born. Our 3D/4D imaging allows you to get a detailed, realistic view of your unborn child in the womb.

Moms-to-be typically receive a 2D ultrasound between 18 and 20 weeks to evaluate the baby's vitals. Because time is spent assessing fetal development and checking the baby's heartbeat, there is little time to watch his or her yawns, hiccups, and smiles. During 3D/4D ultrasounds, however, attention is given to capturing those moments and the precious images of your baby's face, feet, and hands.

During your ultrasound appointment, you'll be amazed at how clearly your baby will appear on the screen. His or her image and movements can be caught with enough clarity to produce black-and-white thermal or colorized images, or a full-motion DVD video. These keepsakes allow you to share your baby's image with family and friends, and make certain you can revisit this momentous time of your life whenever you'd like.

You do not have to be a patient at our practices to schedule your 3D/4D ultrasound imaging session. All soon-to-be parents are welcome along with their family and friends. Our ultrasound technologists are highly skilled and strive to make your experience as memorable and comfortable as possible. In addition to producing the best image of your unborn baby, they will also determine gender upon your request.

Don't miss your opportunity to view your baby's very first movements in real time and to share this season of your life with those you love.
