Doctors did something incredibly thoughtful, creating a 3D ultrasound for a blind mom so she’d be able to “see” her sweet baby’s face!
Being an expectant parent, preparing for the arrival of a baby is a stressful and anxiety-filled period. There's seemingly so much to do before that little bundle of joy arrives and never enough time to do it.
However, one woman, who has a physical disability, was able to enjoy a special ultrasound so she could see the baby before the big day!
3D Ultrasound For Blind Mom
Ashton Johnson is awaiting the birth of her baby boy. However, Ashton is visually impaired and has been unable to see her child in any of the ultrasounds that have been done, according to KETV.
Instead, Ashton has had to rely on her husband, Logan, to describe them to her. That is until Ashton's OBGYN came up with something, something special for Ashton.
"And so, the thought came like, ‘It'd be really nice to give her something tangible to hold on to, to feel the contours of the baby's face and to really get an understanding of what baby looks like,"' Dr. Katie Sekpe said to KETV.
So, Dr. Sekpe got to work and teamed up with another OBGYN. The doctors then turned those ultrasound images into 3D models. That way, through touch, Ashton would be able to "see" her baby.
Ashton was overcome with emotion after her medical team presented her with the 3D ultrasound.
"Thank you so much, guys," Ashton said. "This really means so much to me, thank you."
While Ashton continued to express her gratitude for the special gift, she also stated that others in a similar position get to experience something so special.
"I hope other moms get to do this because this is so cool," she said.
Wow, what a fantastic and special gift to give a mother! Ashton really has a group of medical professionals who have a heart for their patients.
