At Last, A 3D/4D Ultrasound Studio Opens Near Franklin County Kansas
Local expecting parents are excited about the Grand Opening of Topeka 4D Ultrasound. “Topeka didn’t have any options for a 3D ultrasound location since the one in the mall closed about three years ago,” says a young mother. “I think it’s great that we don’t have to drive to Kansas City or Wichita to have a 4D sonogram done,” she explained further. Families are traveling from Garden City, KS to Kansas City, Missouri to experience this brand new studio, which is a franchise from Anticipation Ultrasound Studio in Tulsa Oklahoma.
Cindy and Dennis Newton are the co-owners of Topeka 4D Ultrasound, along with their son and daughter in law, Jake and Allison Taylor. Jake had the idea of opening a 3D sonogram studio after he and his wife had their first child in December 2009. “My wife really loved the time she was able to spend with our son during the pregnancy and enjoyed the whole process. She asked if there was a way to do that as a family business. Our parents felt the same way, and that’s how we got the idea,” Jake explained happily as he held his son Alex, who is the baby model for the studio’s printed material.
