How Before the Stork Began

I was 55 years old ,and a new Empty Nester, driving my two grown daughters crazy calling them 5 times a day. My oldest daughter Kim was newly pregnant and she had heard of this new technowledgy called 3d/4d ultrasound. Finding one of only three places that offerred it back in 2005, we drove to San Diego to see what it was all about. All I can say is we were blown away that we were seeing her babys face with smiles and expressions and watching her move around .The experience was incredible and I knew right then that I had found what I wanted to do next in my life.

Soon after I went to Austin Texas with my daughter Kim, received training, returned home and three months later. Before the Stork opened Kim worked with me and brought Taylor to work the first year. Shortly thereafter, my youngest daughter Ashley came on board to join the family business. She took time off to get married and have four babies and has recently come back now that her kids are all in school.

The last 17 years we have scanned thousands of babys and become one of the longest open 3d/4d Ultrasound facilities in Southern CA. Many of our clients have come back for their 2nd, 3rd and even 4th babys. A funny side note ….our free advertising from the In n Out line in our shopping center has definately brought us clients who over the 17 year we’ve been around, grew up remembered us, married and now were having a baby!

The joy of watching families bond with their babys, never gets old and I'm forever grateful for all our wonderful clients who've allowed us to be a part of they're journey.

My best,

OUR CUSTOMER SERVICE - Our incredible customer service is one of the main reasons that more than 30% of our new clients come from direct referrals!!  We know your baby is important to you and you are both important to us! We are so happy that many of our mommies have come back to us for their 2nd 3rd  and even 4d babies!

OUR STANDARDS - More than 125 So Cal OB/GYN’s recommend Before the Stork to their patients. Your Doctors trust us and our trained sonographers and they respect us following their protocols.    

RETURN POLICY - Our #1 goal is to provide all our clients with the best possible pictures of their baby. However, due to many factors, it’s not always a guarantee that your baby will be cooperative on your first visit. If we are unable to obtain pictures of your baby, our commitment to you is we will bring you back at NO CHARGE within one week to try again.  Most other 4D ultrasound facilities will charge an additional fee if you’d like to come back.

THE OVER-ALL EXPERIENCE - It is important to us that our location offers a warm, comfortable setting.  We never limit the number of guests you can bring and our large private baby-viewing theater (with a 75” viewing screen) will make you feel relaxed and right-at-home.
