Healing angel babies are created with love and are the size and weight
of a real baby. In Victorian times babies like these were carried
in the arms of women who had lost their baby at birth.
In Honor of the Children who Lived, who Died, and who, even in Death,
Continue to Matter.

Transvaginal Color Doppler Ultrasound Pictures
of Vasa Previa
Transvaginal color Doppler ultrasound is THE recommended ultrasound for
diagnosing vasa previa. Some experts suggest this particular scan
should be done during routine obstetrical ultrasound on every pregnant
woman around the 20th week of pregnancy. Ask for it by
name. It is called either transvaginal color Doppler or
endovaginal color Doppler complement and it can rule out vasa
previa. This is very important especially when risk factors for
the condition are present.
