Hello Baby is a baby tech startup company founded by Lethabo Motsoaledi and Matthew Westaway. Hello Baby is well known for their ultrasound 3D printing product – Hello Baby 3D Prints.
A Hello Baby 3D Print is a 3D Printed ultrasound created from a 3D/4D ultrasound. It is a highly sentimental piece that will be cherished for decades to come.
The innovation came about as a solution the inefficiency discovered when expectant mothers go or an 3D ultrasound scan. During a 3D/4D scan, a sonographer gives mothers the opportunity to glance into the womb. However, the memories are taken home on a CD which includes an ultrasound video as well as image snapshots of the scan. The 3D data is then discarded.
Hello Baby is the first company in Africa to work out the algorithm to convert 4D Ultrasounds into 3D Prints
