We are a team…

…of masters level social workers, professional sonographers, teachers, and parents–from various faiths and backgrounds–who have a passion for sharing the gift of life and the beauty of the pre-born person with our youth. With the help of pregnant volunteers, this is made possible through live ultrasound technology.
