We offer a wide variety of baby scan gifts here at First Encounters Ultrasound, but easily the most popular souvenir of all is our adorable Heartbeat Bear (your baby's heartbeat recorded onto a cuddly teddy bear).

Cute, isn't he?

The photo above is taken from Family Days Tried & Tested, a family blog specialising in fun days out and activities for parents to enjoy with their children. The FDT&T family recently visited the First Encounters Clinic, where - thanks to our 4D ultrasound technology - they were introduced to the newest member of their clan:

We're pleased to say that Mrs Family Days wrote an entire blog post about her First Encounters experience - click here to read her thoughts and see the photographs she took on the day.

But let's get back to that bear, because you could win one of your very own for absolutely nothing!

Win a Heartbeat Bear Experience Worth £45!

If you're pregnant and you'd like to have your unborn child's heartbeat recorded onto a cute cuddly toy, here's what to do:
  1. Like First Encounters on Facebook (our page is here).
  2. Share the page with your friends and get them to like it too!
  3. Once our page reaches 2,000 likes, we'll select one of those 2,000 people to win a Heartbeat Bear Experience!

What is a Heartbeat Bear Experience?

If you win the Hearbeat Bear Experience, you'll be invited to your nearest First Encounters clinic for a heartbeat scan. A probe will be placed on your belly and the sound of your baby's heartbeat will be recorded onto one of our teddy bears.


This bear will be yours to take home - the teddy makes a wonderful souvenir of your pregnancy, and we're certain that you'll hang onto it for years after the birth of your baby!

The prizewinner will also have the option to upgrade to a full ultrasound scan - this will be charged as normal, but will include a Heartbeat Bear free of charge.

So what are you waiting for? Head over to Facebook and enter our competition - you've got to be in it to win it!

Please note that the Heartbeat Bear Experience is available only if you are currently pregnant; our protocol prevents us from recording the heartbeat of a child who has already been born.
