Read what these moms have to say about Ultrasound Unwrapped…
I enjoyed reading Ultrasound Unwrapped! All through my pregnancies, I have wanted to see the growth of my babies from week to week through ultrasound. In low-risk pregnancies, you are only allowed a few ultrasound images, and I felt I was missing out. This book gave me that chance to see the development from embryo to baby.Ultrasound Unwrapped was a very informative book, with questions answered that I was always curious about. It will now be my go-to baby shower gift for expecting moms or dads or even grandparents.
This is one of the best books I have ever read about ultrasound! The text is clear and concise. I love all of the images that were included in the book. After reading her book, I feel as if I have a better understanding of ultrasound and fetal development!!
Everything expecting parents need to know about ultrasound!
A must have for every parent to be. This was the most informative and entertaining book I have read in awhile. The author takes the reader on a visual journey while providing professional insight into ultrasounds and discussing misconceptions surrounding the study and practice of sonography.During this unique reading experience, the book gives the reader several images that clarify many of the general questions most expecting parents have during an ultrasound appointment. It’s truly a page-turner that will have you glued to the book from Week 4 of the First Trimester all the way to the end.I highly recommend any person curious about ultrasounds and the pregnancy journey to pick up a copy.
