SUDBURY, Mass (WBZNewsRadio) - Expectant mothers typically get a few physical print outs of their sonogram at medical appointments, but with the help of Bellybaloo, those precious images are sent to you digitally.
"A lot of offices will print maybe 3-to-5 ultrasound images with Bellybaloo you can get a lot more than that." Ellen Murphy, business development manager for Bellybaloo said. "The stenographer choses what images to give so you're not really going to get the boring images, it's just the fun images."
It's the first and only app of it's kind, allowing glowing mothers to bring their ultrasound wherever they go without the fear of misplacing the flimsy sonogram paper. What's more, the app allows you to send pictures of your baby-to-be to friends and family via text, Instagram and Facebook.
All the medical information around the pictures are removed before they're sent making the process completely HIPAA compliant.
Murphy is now the mother of 2-month-old Jack and said she used the app while she was pregnant.
"Anytime I was sitting at work and I was thinking about my baby, I could pull up my app and just stare at my pictures."
