Every family that comes through our doors means so much to us! The moments captured below are just a few of the many amazing 3D ultrasound experiences that we have been a part of. The side by side comparison of these newborns with their 3D ultrasound pictures are simply incredible! We had the pleasure of scanning a few of these babies on several occasions throughout their gestational development. To see pictures of them as newborns is so heartwarming.
Regardless of the service our clients come in for, we consider it a high honor to be a part of their pregnancy journey 💗💙

My sister, Nikki, was due to give birth on 12/18/18. Our entire family was beyond excited to welcome her baby girl! My sister and her husband, Matt, had been going back and forth about names from the moment they found out they were having a girl. (Yes, we did their Gender Determination Ultrasound at Perfect Timing Ultrasound!) Because they couldn’t settle on a name, we took to calling her “Baby G.” Nikki had come to Perfect Timing on a few different occasions which enabled us to really appreciate Baby G’s development and even get some beautiful 3D images of her! This only enhanced my family’s anticipation! We just couldn’t wait to meet our new family member.
Apparently, Baby G could feel us beckoning. Sixteen days before her due date, Nikki noticed that she hadn’t been feeling the baby move very much. This was a noticeable change as Baby G had been very active in utero. A decrease in fetal movement in the later stages of pregnancy can indicate that the baby is under stress. So, following the advice of our mom, Nikki called her Obstetrician’s office. They were concerned and did not want to take any unnecessary chances, so they directed Nikki to go to the hospital.
Once atUmassMemorial Medical Center, she underwent several tests to determine how Baby G was doing. The results weren’t great. They determined that the baby was ok but that Nikki had borderline low amniotic fluid, which is dangerous for the baby. Because of her gestational age of 38 weeks, decreased fetal movement, and low amniotic fluid volume, the doctors decided to induce Nikki. This was a shock to everyone. Nikki and Matt had not even brought the “Go Bag” with them to the hospital and had nothing that they would need for Nikki’s stay.
Labor inductions typically take some time so Nikki thought it best to send Matt home for their things. They lived about 20 minutes or so from the hospital, so they figured this would be no problem. While he was gone, the doctors went forth with beginning the induction. They started with misoprostol, which did in fact initiate contractions. Nikki had texted our mother that “some small contractions” had started but that she was doing fine and to stay home because this will take a while. Nikki had said the same to me and even asked Matt to bring her work computer back to the hospital with him so that she could get some work done during the early stages of induction.
Myknowledgeof medically induced labor had me agreeing, “Okay, yeah this willprobablytake a day or so.”Mostmedical inductions are slow going, and somewhat uneventful.Mostof the time, doctors carefully watch as labor slowly progresses in a controlled environment. Unfortunately, there are just some factors that the doctors cannot control.One of these factors is that low amniotic fluid levels result in compression of the umbilical cord. This is a dangerous situation for the baby as cord compression results in a lack of oxygen and affects the baby’s blood pressure and heart rate.
Once Nikki’s contractions started, things got pretty intense. Out of nowhere, monitors started sounding, a code was calledand a team of doctors and nurses rushed in to Nikki’s room. My poor sister was there alone, anticipating none of what was about to happen. Apparently, Baby G was not handling labor well. Despite the medical team’s efforts, her heart rate plummeted with every contraction.They rushed Nikki to the operating room, the surgeon calling Matt from Nikki’s cell phone on the way telling him he needed to get to the hospital ASAP because they needed to perform ac-section. Matt texted my mom,“c-section” and rushed to the hospital. During that time the medical team had stabilized the baby’s heart rate and actually brought Nikki back to her room in the birthing unit. That didn’t last for long, though. A few minutes later, another code was called and Nikki was rushed to the operating room again. Once again, they were able to stabilize the baby’s heart rate. Thankfully, Matt had made it to the hospital and was there when the doctor told them that, “This baby is going to need ac-section. We are better off doing it now while we have her temporarily stabilized, than waiting and having to rush to save her life.” Nikki and Matt readily agreed and thec-sectionwas performed. By the grace of God, everything went extremely well! The baby was delivered in good health and my sister made it through the surgery just fine.
My mother and I had raced up toUmassMemorial (in separate vehicles) as soon as we heard that Nikki was having ac-section. It was a long ride for both of us as no one knew why Nikki needed thec-sectiondelivery. We didn’t know what was happening or which of them was in danger. All we knew was that we needed to get there. On my way up, I called my sister, Kayla, who lives in Arlington, Virginia as she is attending George Washington University. We kept each other company and just talked to pass the time. It was scary, but I was so thankful to have my sister to talk to during that long drive. When I was about 20 minutes out from the hospital we started receiving texts that the baby was here! I could see picture messages popping up on my phone and cried tears of relief and joy that my sister and the baby were okay.
Getting to meet Baby G was so incredible. I can’t accurately describe what it was like for me to experience becoming an Auntie for the first time. Nor am I able to put in to words how my heart ached with relief when I saw that my sister was okay with my own eyes. My heart raced with adrenaline for hours thereafter.
Several hours following her birth, Baby G was still without a real name. My sister, who was somewhat doped up on pain medication, was blatantly harassing her husband to come up with names he liked. We were all giddy with relief and it was hilarious. My mom and I left the room for a few hours to give the new parents some time alone with their new baby girl. Later that morning we had name! They had decided on Addilyn Lee, Addie for short! We all absolutely loved it. I held my perfect little niece and told her, “Auntie loves you so much, Addie girl.”
The next day, Nikki told us that a resident who had assisted during the scary ordeal of Addie’s induction and birth, stopped by her room. The resident told Nikki that they heard that Nikki and Matt had named the baby and she wanted to come by to see “miracle baby, Addie.” The resident explained how rare it is to call two codes on one baby and that Addie was in fact a miracle. Nikki explained that she didn’t realize until this conversation, that “they really could have lost her.”
When you have a baby, everyone congratulates you. It’s just the cultural norm to do so. I’ve been thinking about it and there is so much behind that custom. People mostly mean it in the “how exciting!!” kind of way, but there’s more. Birth is truly a miracle. The congratulations we extend to new parents and their families encompasses all of the excitement as well as the knowledge that pregnancy doesn’t always have a happy ending. Addie is indeed a miracle and we are so fortunate for Nikki noticing the change in her baby’s movement. For my mom directing Nikki to call her OB. And for the wonderful care and expertise of all of the Umass Memorial Medical Center staff that ensured that my sister’s pregnancy would have a happy ending.

Great experience! They have an awesome set up with a projector and a huge couch. My whole family was able to attend and even though we saw the sex immediately, they continued the ultrasound to show us all of the developed organs and everything. So fun!
Everything about my appointment was so amazing! I was so comfortable and surprised as to how large the room was and accommodating for lots of people. Next time I’ll have to bring our families so they can experience it with us. Kristen & Sarah were so nice and you can tell they really love what they do. They may have been just as excited as we were! Thanks again!!
They went above and beyond to figure out the gender of our baby. They were so welcoming, kind, and have the patience of a saint! Worth every penny! I would recommend this place to anyone seeking gender and/or 3D ultrasound! You won’t be disappointed.
Perfect Timing is AMAZING! It was the most relaxing ultrasound experience I have had. The owners are so kind, and so patient, explaining everything that I was seeing on the screen. The ultrasound room itself is so comfy, with nice big couches and an area in the corner for your kids to entertain themselves while you are getting to see your baby. I will be going back to Perfect Timing between my regular doctor appointments, it was that wonderful of an experience! Thank you ladies!
Sarah and Kristen were great! The whole experience was a pleasant one, we were both so comfortable. They took the time and effort to try and get some great footage of our sweet and stubborn little man! The space is so cute and the ultrasound room is awesome! The chair was comfy for me and my husband appreciated the comfy couch. 100% will recommend to any expecting mommas-to-be.

Had an amazing experience at Perfect Timing Ultrasound! I had planned on doing a family gender reveal at Christmas. My Dr. Said she couldn’t get gender at 15weeks on her machine and scheduled me out for January. PERFECT TIMING IS RIGHT. I did a quick search in my area and found these guys. After looking at the website and reviews I felt confident booking. It was a little tricky to find but my sister came with me and we were both wonderfully surprised!! You walk in and it’s a clean and modern but warm feel. In the ultrasound room there are couches and a large projector with screen. I was so thrilled with the thoroughness of the whole experience. I selected the top secret gender reveal and will be opening a bear (pink or blue) with my babies heartbeat recorded inside on Christmas Morning. I am exceptionally grateful that Perfect Timing gave me the opportunity to have the reveal I had planned (and in style). THANK YOU!

My family & I had the best experience at Perfect Timing Ultrasound tonight! The girls who own this business are so well educated, patient and kind. The space itself was spacious, clean, inviting and family friendly. My four year old was well entertained with the toy & tent corner while we watched the baby. There’s a sectional big enough for probably 12 people in the ultrasound room and a massive screen on the wall to see the baby. Dressing in blue or pink and getting your closest family and friends together to find out the gender on the big screen would be so fun! This is also a great gift idea for expecting parents if you’re looking for something unique & special to give. Thank you Kristen & Sarah for being so patient with our stubborn little girl!

Perfect Timing Ultrasound was great. I brought 6 of my family members, and there was plenty of space when we went to an early gender reveal (at 14 weeks). The staff was very kind, and sweet. Overall, Great experience and I can’t wait to go back to get 4D pictures!

I can not say enough great things about my experience with Kristen & Sarah! I showed up for my 14 week gender determination appointment with a large crowd and they were so accommodating. They made the experience super fun and comfortable. I will definitely be returning there for a 3D ultrasound!
Julianne Trudeau 1/15/19
There are not enough good things I could say about my amazing experience at Perfect Timing! Sarah and Kristen are the sweetest and most patient duo a mom-to-be could ask for. They made me feel 100% comfortable and stress free the entire time even though baby girl was being a bit stubborn with moving her hand from in front of her face. I would, without a doubt, highly recommend their services to any parents-to-be looking for an incredible experience with some true professionals!

I absolutely adored my experience with Perfect Timing Ultrasound. I went 14 weeks and 5 days for a gender reveal surprise! Both Sarah and Kristen did an amazing job turning off the screen and locating the gender. I was so worried that the baby would be shy and we wouldnt be able to get the answer. This was so not the case. The ladies were so kind they even called someone for me to reveal the sex so we could have that person put something together as a surprise for the reveal. The location is easy to get too and the suite is clean and spacious. They had a section ny 1 year old played while we did the ultrasound. I can not wait to return when our SON is a little more developed!
Kristen Berghane 11/5/18

Had such an amazing experience when Sarah and Kristen scanned my little guy!!! He was so super shy at first but they took their time and waited for him to decide to show his face! The office has such a great clean feel to it and the ultrasound room is beyond comfortable!!!!! Their website says there is enough room to bring people and it’s no joke, it’s so comfortable and spacious! I would definitely recommend having a 3D/4D ultrasound done here! Such a fun time all around!!!

Carly Roche 7/23/18
Sarah and Kristen have scanned my little guy a few times now and each visit is more amazing than the last! These incredible mamas are passionate about what they do and it shows from the moment you walk in the door. The opportunity to see your baby is special and they are with you every step of the way, making sure you’re comfortable, answering questions, and always aiming for the highest quality scans. Perfecting Timing has been an amazing part of my pregnancy and has allowed me to connect with baby in a way I never imagined – if you’re expecting or planning, I cannot recommend them enough! Thank you Sarah and Kristen!
