Our son Jacob (Jake) and his wife Allison had their first child Alex on the third of December in 2009. The entire experience fascinated both of them, and like most parents do, they went back to work at their jobs to earn a living. Jake had an idea about opening an ultrasound studio, and if you knew Jake, you would understand that once he has something in mind, he pursues it to the fullest. His desire to look into a studio was based on the experience of seeing Alex in 3D and also based on the fact that he and Allison felt they could really make a difference with expectant mothers and their families.
Jake contacted Cindy and I about working with him to make his dream a reality. Cindy and I had just left our jobs and the idea of starting our own business was appealing. So, thanks to the enormous amount of research and marketing work that Jake completed, we stepped in to get the "ball rolling". Cindy and I opened Topeka 4D Ultrasound in September 2010, as co-owners and operators. Jake worked with us initially from an advertising and marketing perspective, and Allison assisted us as a part-time technician.
One of our goals early on, if the business proved to be successful, was to transfer the operating duties in Topeka to Allison. Our goal was to open a 2nd studio closer to our home in Olathe. Well, it happened exactly one year after opening the doors in Topeka. Allison now does all of the scheduling and scans in Topeka and has done so since August 2011.
As you can see from this website, the Olathe location (Kansas 4D Ultrasound) quickly became a reality in September 2011. The Olathe studio is different from our original operation in Topeka; we added an expanded retail area that we call "Peep's Babies and Bears". We are often asked why Peep's? Well, it's quite simple, Cindy is called Grandma Peep's by all of our grandchildren and it just seemed fitting to name the boutique accordingly!
We are confident that you will find our studio in Olathe (and Topeka) to be the most family oriented studio in the industry. Why? It is quite simple, Cindy and I from the very beginning wanted to put every effort into making it an enjoyable and memorable moment in time for each and every family that we come into contact with. That is the very least we can offer and promise. We value family and always have, so it comes naturally for us (and our staff) to treat you like royalty. As a grandmother of "ten", Cindy really enjoys the mommy experience. She created a unique spa-like feel at our Topeka studio that has really made the families feel comfortable and relaxed. It is truly a beautiful studio setting. The same concept has been replicated and expanded in Olathe.
As a family owned and operated business, we encourage family involvement. That is why our studio is both spacious and inviting. We want each and every session to be a special event for the family. We do not restrict who can be in our studio with our "Mom-2-be"; she calls the shots, if she is comfortable with them in the scan room, then so are we! In Olathe, we have hosted twenty-six (26) family and friends at a single ultrasound session; the more the merrier as far as we are concerned. Whether Cindy is doing the scans or another tech is involved, the very same "caring" attitude with each and every "mom 2 be" and their family, will be the norm.
Come visit our studio and boutique, we believe you will find it a unique and special experience.
Dennis & Cindy Newton, Co-owners
