I'm a Registered Sonographer (ARDMS) with over 28 years of experience and I'm thrilled to be bringing First Glimpse 3D/4D Ultrasound Ltd. to Ft McMurray. Using highly advanced medical imaging technology, I provide expecting parents with the unique experience of viewing their unborn baby. This includes a live-scan session on a large monitor, pictures you take away on a CD, memory stick or DVD, and gender reveal if requested.


I invite the pregnant woman and up to three additional guests to join in the viewing experience. For those unable to attend or extra family members, an on-line video conference session for remote viewing can be included.


I look forward to sharing this First Glimpse with you!

Judy Christensen

Owner & Sonographer


I am a qualified Registered Sonographer (ARDMS) with 28 years of experience in the diagnostic field of ultrasound. During my years of scanning pregnant women and interacting with them and their families, one thing became very clear: many parents experienced and felt that the medical test was highly stressful, and they came away feeling disappointed due to a lack of bonding time with their unborn baby.


For many years I have believed that the medical ultrasound test and the parent viewing experience should be separate. The medical exam is crucial to assist with managing the pregnancy and delivery. The viewing should be in a relaxed space with time for bonding; an experience to be savored, enjoyed, shared with loved ones, and not rushed, which is exactly why First Glimpse came to be.


Plan ahead for a great and special experience and know that I’m here to provide you with an extended, high quality (non-diagnostic) viewing experience that will not disappoint. 


AND… all right here in Ft. McMurray! No long trip down to Edmonton or Calgary. I can accommodate the partner, and two additional guests in the scan room to join in the viewing together. For those unable to attend or extra family members, an on-line video conference session for remote viewing can be included. Quality images will be printed and the whole exam is recorded to a CD/Memory Stick or DVD.


One of my greatest joys has been, first to see the miracle of “life before life,” and second, to have the privilege of seeing the tears of joy on parents’ faces when they see their unborn baby for the first time. I have had the best “job” ever!
