The Bump Studio | Doulas of Memphis Spotlight

The Bump Studio is a new elective keepsake ultrasound studio in Memphis. We met with them this week to check out the studio and learn more!

The Bump Studio

Many expectant families are curious to get a peek of their little one in the womb, whether it's for a gender reveal or as a way to bond with their family and baby. The Bump Studio offers keepsake elective ultrasounds in a luxury boutique setting. Co-owner Rico Viglietti (other owners are Rob Rutledge and Dr. Scott Adelman) and sonographer Sarah Campbell were both warm, friendly,  and eager to show us around and answer questions.

Since they are not a diagnostic studio, The Bump Studio is able to offer an enhanced experience that is unhurried and family-focused in a home-like setting.

Instead of waiting rooms and small ultrasound rooms with limited space for family members, The Bump Studio has designed their space to ensure comfort for everyone.  Instead of a cramped clinic room, there is ample space and comfortable furniture to accommodate as many or few people as you like. Want the whole family in on the action? Great! The ultrasound machine is barely there and the space feels like a luxurious living room.  There is a small retail space, and even an additional room that has space to host your baby shower or gender reveal party.

Instead of quickly taking measurements and sending you on your way, The Bump Studio sonographer is able to devote more time to capturing images of your growing baby.  Instead of a small screen, you can see your baby on The Bump Studio's big-screen television. In addition to standard 3D/4D ultrasound, they also offer HD Live, which is the most up-to-date technology available.

The Bump Studio values safety and accountability as much as customer service.

When it comes to safety and accountability, The Bump Studio has truly gone the extra mile. All of their sonographers are credentialed through the American Registry for Diagnostic Medical Sonography (ARDMS), and they require that you be under the care of an OB/GYN and keep them in the loop before they will perform an ultrasound. This added layer of accountability ensures that provider and patient are on the same page. Regarding safety of ultrasound (from The Bump Studio website):

Extensive studies over 30 years have found that Ultrasound has not been proven to cause harm to mother or baby. Routine scanning of all pregnancies is highly common. In 3D/4D HD Live scanning, exactly the same type and intensity of Ultrasound is used as with conventional 2D scanning. 3D and 4D HD Live Ultrasound both utilize sound waves to look inside the body. This technology is similar to radar. A probe placed on the body emits sound waves into the body, listens for the return echo and generates an image. 4D HD Live Ultrasound is similar to a conventional scan in terms of exposure. We adhere strictly to FDA standards.

When you choose The Bump Studio, you can enjoy this unique bonding experience with peace of mind that your safety, transparency, and a positive experience are of top priority.

The Bump Studio is located at 923 South Yates, Memphis, TN 38120 and they can be reached by phone at 901-512-6456.
