About Us - BB 3D Ultrasound Studio
Beautiful Beginnings 3D/4D Ultrasound Studio was created by a Registered Certified Sonographer in Maternal-Fetal Medicine, who wanted to offer expectant parents a bonding experience in our private, soothing and spa like atmosphere.
Our unique facility encourages prenatal bonding by providing a non-diagnostic ultrasound viewing with 3D/4D technology, focusing on creating memories that will last a lifetime. Invite family and friends to share this magical moment with you, as everyone watches the “Newest Star” on the large flat screen T.V. Bring far away families and friends closer, by sharing real time streaming of your session on the internet, live actions DVD’s and photos.
Our goal is to provide you with the greatest experience possible during this most memorable time of your life!
Melody Jurlina, owner of Beautiful Beginnings has been a Registered Diagnostic Ob/Gyn Sonographer since 2001, specializing in high risk Maternal Fetal Medicine. Her career in Ultrasound became a reality after her own high risk pregnancy and now a mother of two children; it continues to be a blessing for her to share the experience of life with new mothers, fathers and their families. When she had her own 3D/4D Ultrasound for her second son, she realized that her imaging skills and her excitement as an expectant parent would be a perfect fit for a new center. This experience drove her decision to open Beautiful Beginnings in 2009.
Melody graduated with a 4.0 GPA from Ultrasound Diagnostic School. She went on to work for an OB/Gyn practice in which she had the opportunity to work directly with world known Perinatologists in the NYC and Westchester areas. During that time, she also taught Ultrasound at a well known Ultrasound School. Melody has been an Ultrasound Manager for a high volume Imaging Center for the past several years, overseeing over 25 Ultrasound Sonographers. During her career, she has been given the opportunity to train and mentor over 100 techs. In 2008, Melody was the recipient of the Journal News sponsored, “Rockland County's Forty Under Forty” program, which recognizes forty individuals under the age of 40 who made a positive impact in their community.
Gianna Mercurio - Since receiving her Associates of Applied Sciences in Diagnostic Medical Sonography in 2009, Gianna Mercurio has had a passion & drive for the medical field. With experience in all areas of ultrasound, & side by side training with a Sonographer of OB/GYN, she became fascinated by 3d ultrasound & always stays on top of learning more about it each day.

She believes that pregnancy is such a miracle & gift of life that everyone should be able to get as much out of it as they can, being that it is such a memorable & joyful experience. Her love for the field will hopefully inspire others to witness the amazing journey that begins in the womb.
