A Great Gift - Heartbeat Teddybear
Our Heartbeat Teddybear Animals are unique because you get to record your unborn baby's heartbeat, and put that recording inside one of our teddybear animals. How exciting that you can record your baby's heartbeat when you are only 10 weeks pregnant! This makes a great gift for absent moms and dads, parents, grandparents and friends. The heartbeat teddybear is also a great gift for your other children. If they are having difficulty accepting that you are pregnant, then getting them their own heartbeat teddybear with your new baby's heartbeat will help them to bond with the new baby. They will be eager to meet their new baby brother or baby sister!
Teagan AliRachel and James Duffy lost their newborn baby, Teagan Ali to a disease called Triploidy. Triploidy is a very rare chromosomal disorder. Normal people inherit 23 chromosomes from their mother and 23 from their father, for a total of 46.
Someone with triploidy inherited 23 chromosomes from one parent, but 46 from the another parent, for a total of 69 chromosomes. It is estimated that 1% of all pregnancies are triploidy, but the majority of those pregnancies are lost via miscarriage in the 1st trimester. Of the pregnancies that continue, 99% die in utero or are stillborn.
The statistics for surviving birth with triploidy is somewhere between 1 in 1,200 to 1 in 10,000.
Teagan was born full term and survived birth. She lived for six days, but more than that, she touched many peoples lives and hearts including ours at Unique Ultrasound!
Rachel, James and their son came in during their pregnancy with Teagan Ali for ultrasounds knowing that they were going to loose their baby shortly after birth. Rachel is now pregnant again with twins (what a blessing) and they took photos with our heart-beat teddy bear. This photo shows their son holding the teddy bear that has a recording of Teagan Ali's heartbeat. Visit the Teagan Ali Facebook page here.

Comfort for the Mom-to-Be
But in addition the heartbeat teddybear can be a real comfort to the mom-to-be. During those times when you just need to hear your baby's heart-beat, all you need to do is hug your heartbeat teddybear. It is a special treat while you are pregnant and becomes a life-long memento. However, as your child grows up, you will be torn, should you give your heartbeat teddy bear to your child so they can hear their own heartbeat, or should you keep it for yourself? Our advice is to buy two, because once you hear your baby's heartbeat in our teddybear you will not want to part with it, ever! But it will make a special gift to your son or daughter when they grow up.
