My name is Safia Shirley and I am the proud owner of Baby's Close-Up 3D/4D Ultrasound, as well as the lead sonographer. I have over 15 years of experience in ultrasound, and I am a registered diagnostic medical sonographer through the ARDMS. I have worked in many different settings from OB/Gyn's offices to hospitals to outpatient imaging centers. For the majority of my ultrasound career, I have worked in facilities where family members were typically not invited in to the exam room to share or be a part of the ultrasound. Over the years, I realized that I wanted to show people their beautiful babies, and it was hard for me to not turn the screen towards them and to allow people to see the miracle of life happening right in front of their eyes. After seeing thousands of beautiful babies while doing ultrasounds over the years, I realized that I wanted to be more involved with sharing my experience and helping families bond with their unborn child through ultrasound technology. Baby's Close-Up 3D/4D Ultrasound has allowed me to fulfill my dream of using ultrasound to give families a peek into the amazing world of their unborn child and to strengthen and enhance the bonding experience between family members and their little one.
I have a wonderful husband, and am also a proud mommy of two boys who keep me very busy and are my little sweetie pies! Becoming a mother is life changing, and being pregnant was such a beautiful miracle to me, that I often find myself missing that indescribable feeling (apart from the morning sickness, lol). I love being able to relive such a special and exciting time vicariously through our wonderful clients.
If this is your first experience having a 3D/4D ultrasound, be prepared for a feeling of overwhelming joy, excitement and love after you see your little one developing and becoming their own little person.
At Baby's Close-Up, we strive to capture tiny details from smiles, dimples and facial features, to the miraculous bigger movements that we see babies doing such as stretching, kicking, and yawning, all while in the womb. You may even be able to tell that your future new addition has "daddy's nose" or "mommy's chin". We would love the opportunity to help you bond even more with your little miracle by using 3D /4D ultrasound technology.
Please join us in our comfortable, unique, family friendly ultrasound theater to see your beautiful baby's close-up.
