The Bump in Valdosta, GA

June 29, 2012


We are pleased to announce the Grand opening of The Bump in Valdosta, GA.

The Bump 3D/4D ultrasound studio is here to serve the expecting mothers of Valdosta and its surrounding area. Pregnancy is such a special and exciting time and there is no better way to capture this moment in life than with a 3D ultrasound of your little one while still in the womb! With these life-like photos you can get a sneak peek of the baby’s facial features and watch live as it smiles, stretches and sucks its thumb.


The Bump can obtain the best images possible with our state of the art GE ultrasound machines and a technician that is there to take their time. Unlike your doctor’s office, there is no hurry, it is a relaxed atmosphere and we welcome your friends and family to join in on this incredible experience. You can even find out if it’s a Boy or a Girl as early as 15 weeks!

he Bump 3D is a stylish, comfortable studio where we capture memories that you will treasure for a lifetime.  Upon arriving, you will be welcomed by our technician, Leanna, who will help you fill out a registration packet.  There is plenty of waiting room for your family and friends, we even have a little play station for kids.

The ultrasound will take place in our viewing room which resembles a home theater room with a large projection screen and comfy couches.  Then comes the fun part, get ready to see if baby looks like Mommy or Daddy!

The majority of expecting moms will get at least one ultrasound performed by their OB. Below we are going to highlight the difference in the experience you have at our studio versus your doctors office.

Enjoyable Experience @ The Bump. We can guarantee that you will enjoy your elective ultrasound experience at The Bump. We have a warm, relaxing environment that makes the whole experience so much better than the cold, sterile feeling that most doctor offices have.

No long wait @ The Bump. At The Bump all of our prenatal 3D/ 4D ultrasounds are done by appointment only to ensure that you and your guests will never have to wait. We have all had the negative experience of waiting hours to be seen by the doctor which happens even more so with OB’s when they are called out to deliver babies. The wait can be hours sometimes but we can ensure that you won’t be left sitting in the waiting room nervous and excited at The Bump.


Big crowds welcomed @ The Bump. We think the more the merrier! You can easily fit up to 10 friends and family in our ultrasound viewing room and have your loved ones share this amazing memory with you. At the doctors office you are usually limited to 1 or 2 additional people in the room.

Flexible hours @ The Bump. Often times it is not possible for daddy, grandparents, friends, ect to take off during the work week to attend your doctor’s appointment with you. At The Bump we offer plenty of appointments after 5 p.m. during the week and we are also open on the weekend for your convenience.

Pleasant staff @ The Bump. We have all heard horror stories of how an excited mom goes in for her prenatal ultrasound only to be subject to an unfriendly nurse who is all but excited for her. Our staff is always smiling and just as excited as you are to view your little miracle. Your ultrasound experience at The Bump will never be ruined by someone else’s bad attitude.

Relaxed appointments @ The Bump. Often a doctors office is seeing many patients in one day and does not have the time for the long ultrasound we all want. You often feel rushed but that won’t ever happen at The Bump. Each package allows for plenty of viewing time of baby.

Patient with baby @ The Bump. Well some are stubborn even while still in the womb. Whether they won’t wake up or are crossing their legs, it may take a little bit longer than normal from time to time. Often your doctor will just say, “sorry, we’ll try again next time.” Well next time could easily be 4-6 weeks away. At The Bump we are patient and try our best to get you great 3D/4D pictures or reveal the gender for the first time. We will often have you drink some juice, walk around and try again. If baby still does not cooperate, we can re-scan you within the next few days.

Plenty of pictures taken @ The Bump. Some doctors print only a couple of pictures for you to take home, some none at all. Every prenatal ultrasound done receives at least 6 3D prints that you take home with you that day so you can show off your little one!

Ultrasound Gel Warning: Per FDA

April 20, 2012

From ABC News: (http://abcnews.go.com/blogs/health/2012/04/19/fda-warning-infection-risks-from-contaminated-ultrasound-gel/)

Author: By Jane E. Allen


FDA Warning: Infection Risks From Contaminated Ultrasound Gel


The Food and Drug Administration is warning doctors, hospitals and clinics that contaminated ultrasound gel produced by a New Jersey company infected 16 cardiac patients and could pose serious risks to pregnant women and others who undergo ultrasound imaging and treatment.

The gel is used by radiologists, urologists, gastroenterologists, OB-GYNs, internists, nurses and ultrasound technicians for diagnostic ultrasound testing. Chiropractors and physical therapists use the gel for therapeutic ultrasound treatment of pain, inflammation and injuries.

The agency told the health professionals to stop using the gel because of contamination with two strains of bacteria. “Although Other-Sonic Generic Ultrasound Transmission Gel is not labeled as either sterile or non-sterile, it is NOT sterile,” the FDA cautioned.

The 16 heart patients became infected with the bacteria, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, while undergoing transesophageal ultrasound exams with Other-Sonic Generic Ultrasound Transmission Gel during heart valve replacement surgery at a single hospital, the FDA said. The product is made by Pharmaceutical Innovations Inc., of Newark, N.J., which bills itself on its website as “world leader in medical ultrasound.”

In February, an FDA analysis of product samples revealed ”significant amounts of Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Klebsiella oxytoca,” which the FDA said suggested that the contamination occurred “during the manufacturing process.”  Both types of bacteria can colonize the skin without causing any symptoms, although Pseudomonas also may cause skin eruptions, even on unbroken skin, the FDA warned. More concerning, however, is the potential of the bacteria to enter the body through ultrasound exams of the airway, lower digestive tract or a woman’s genital tract, where they could cause infection.

“Intact skin is a fairly good barrier to infection,” said Dr. Robert A. Winters, an infectious disease specialist in Santa Monica, Calif. He said that  fetal ultrasounds and ultrasounds of organs like the gall bladder, where the gel is applied to overlying skin, are of “lower concern” than more invasive ultrasounds where a probe is inserted into the body, such as during transesophageal imaging. “On the other hand, they’re using the probe, they’re moving it on the skin, they could be abrading the skin and potentially introducing germs into otherwise clean sites. There is probably some small added risk if you’re undergoing ultrasound with a contaminated gel product.”

But he noted, in the big scheme of infectious disease risks, “We all are interacting with lots of different bacteria all day long.”

If you’re concerned about possible exposure to a contaminated gel, “the best thing to do is go home and take a good shower with soap and water,” or make sure the people performing your ultrasound “pat the area with alcohol afterwards,” said Winters, chairman of the infection control division at Saint John’s Health Center in Santa Monica.

“Not every patient exposed to Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Klebsiella bacteria in Other-Sonic Generic Ultrasound Transmission Gel will develop colonization (the presence of bacteria at a site without any signs of infection) or infection, but the risk remains present,” the FDA alert said. It warned that biopsies can let bacteria get into tissues, causing an abscess or severe bloodstream infection called sepsis. If Klebsiella bacteria, which are common in the digestive tract, enter the lungs or spread to other tissues, they could lead to pneumonia, wound infection or bloodstream infections, the FDA said.

At the agency’s request, New Jersey health authorities embargoed all lots of the gel manufactured from June through December 2011. The U.S. Marshal Service has since seized those lots. Health professionals were urged to stop using 250 milliliter bottles and 5-liter dispensing containers with three lot numbers: 060111, 090111 and 120111. They were also asked to identify any patients who underwent ultrasound exams with gel from those lots.

“This ultrasound gel presented serious health risks to patients, particularly vulnerable ones,” Dara A. Corrigan, the FDA’s associate commissioner for regulatory affairs, said in a statement issued by the FDA. “Therefore, FDA, with the assistance of our state partner, is taking aggressive enforcement action to protect the public health.”
