Bumpkins Baby is a private & independent ultrasound facility set in the beautiful rural Yorkshire countryside yet only minutes from the A64, East of York.
Set up by local lady Katherine Rycroft, they have welcomed hundreds of expectant families through the doors of their converted barn for baby ultrasounds, early gender DNA testing, hand and foot casting, independent health visiting advice, paediatric first aid and much more.
“It is my absolute pleasure and privilege to introduce people to the newest addition to their family, whether it’s baby number one or seven nothing is quite like that magical moment when parents hear their babies heartbeat for the first time. It is so important to us that everyone who visits us has the very best experience, we’re here to capture those moments that only come round once, life is so busy, time is so precious, it’s a gift to be able to create an experience to treasure forever, photographs that represent a moment in time, a movie clip of those first wriggles, a recording of a heartbeat, a memory of dad’s reaction when he finds out he’s having a boy (not that he wouldn’t have been over the moon if baby was a girl!) or that moment when it all starts to feel real and you start to imagine what life is going to be like for and with your little human.” Kate, Managing Director
The premises are fully CQC approved and have been designed to offer expectant families an experience to remember and treasure forever. From the stripped oak beams, comfy sofas and state of the art scanning facilities to the outlook across the countryside it is a haven of peace and tranquility, where you can relax and enjoy your pregnancy throughout its various stages and beyond, once bump has become baby.
Offering baby ultrasounds from around 9 weeks and gender scan packages from 15 weeks, Bumpkins Baby has the latest in HD technology so can introduce baby to you in all their 4D glory up to around 33 weeks gestation.
More recently Bumpkins Baby has become the first clinic in the UK to offer the Sneak Peek early gender DNA test. Available from 8 weeks gestation this non invasive clinical test involves a blood sample from mums arm being taken by a fully trained phlebotomy professional before being whisked away to the labs for testing, results are emailed direct within 3-4 days. This is a clinical test and not a finger prick test.
“Being small and independent means we can do things our way. Such as working with hand-selected, like-minded companies that compliment what we do. We choose to work with only the best, as operating to the highest of standards and providing a service that’s second to none, is what we have a reputation for.” Kate
Working with other like minded companies Bumpkins Baby offer a wide range of services such as paediatric first aid, independent health visiting advice, hand and foot casting, new born and maternity photography and much more.
“We are on the brink of launching some really exciting new things for Bumpkins Baby, including our new branding and website, all to the high standards we’re renowned for, that will offer our clients old and new even more reasons to visit us for all things pregnancy & baby.
