Back in January I was lucky enough to win a competition from Family Go Live Magazine they are aimed at the Liverpool and surrounding local areas but the website is still worth a read in my opinion even if you are not local, they have a fantastic website for parents with loads of great information and advice, they also run some brilliant competitions every month too.
The prize I won was a 4D ‘Getting To Know You’ scan package from a company in Liverpool called Before The Stork , as you can imagine I was thrilled I had never had one before and was very excited.
Finally last Sunday the time had come for me to have my scan, I really didn’t know what to expect but the experience exceeded any expectations I did have.
Before the Stork was really easy to find and there were plenty of spaces to park, I was also impressed that we could have the scan on a Sunday.
We had a lovely welcome from the ladies there, they congratulated me on winning and after filling in quick registration form and reading all the terms & conditions we were invited into the scan room, the room was lovely and the informal atmosphere made me feel very relaxed straight away.
Tiny Webster was being a little awkward at first as he has been at every scan, the ultrasonographer was lovely and said I could go for a little walk to try and get him in a better position, she was really patient and at no point did we ever feel rushed or hurried.
I had a little walk and when we returned he started behaving and gave us some a lovely look at his little features, I was amazed to be looking at him, seeing his little mouth moving and the funny facial expressions he was making, the soothing music was nice and really helped with relaxation.
Here are a few of the pictures, we managed to get 88 shots altogether which is amazing.
Look at where his foot is !!!
He looks so cross in this one, this is my favourite picture of them all.
The package that I won was worth £150 and includes the following:
* Approximately a 20 minute scan
* 6 6″ x 4″ photos of your choice
* 2 Key Rings
* A DVD & CD Rom with all your pictures on
* A £50 voucher Newborn photoshoot voucher
* We also got a Heart Beat Bear (I think this might be a limited offer with this package so double check if you are going to book)
The bear has a little recorder box inside with baby’s heartbeat on, it’s been a big hit with Daisy and it’s such a lovely keepsake.
I can’t thank Family Go Live and Before The Stork enough for this special experience, I only wish I had been able to experience it with each of my pregnancies.
