Life Meant to Live was started by Tammy Cowen, in 2010. She noticed that there wasn't a place for people to go for an ultrasound after 12 weeks gestation if they were contemplating abortion. Seeing a need, she created her own solution by personally purchasing an ultrasound machine and leasing a location. Tammy worked full-time during the day as an ultrasound technician, and used those skills in the evenings to pursue her mission. After some time she realize that she needed to be available for these people in need at all times, and took a leap of faith. She left her current career at a hospital and opened Imaging Miracles in order to help fund Life Meant to Live.
We've consistently grown since then, all thanks to the helping hands of this amazing community!
Each of our technicians are hand-picked for this opportunity. They are selected based off of their skill set and their level of compassion. We believe that in our office, anyone should have the ability to show love and compassion to everyone they come into contact with regardless of race, gender, social background or life situation. We really take our No Judgement Policy to heart. Our goal is to create an environment, where those that we have the privilege of assisting, are comfortable enough to open up and ask difficult questions about their pregnancy, so that we can better assist them.
At Life Meant to Live, we hope that through the idea of “seeing is believing” we can show women the life they are creating within their uterus, and give them accurate information on fetal development, the gestational age of their fetus and their options for their pregnancy.
If our sonographers are unable to answer questions or aid in assistance, outside of ultrasound, we work with many other wonderful organizations who are eagerly awaiting a chance to help those who are pregnant and unsure, unprepared, or just wanting additional education and information on their options during their pregnancy.
What we can see via ultrasound is determined by gestational age.
We strive to provide a welcoming, clean, and safe environment.
Our goal is to be a judgement-free, safe space where questions are encouraged, and women feel safe and uplifted.
Upon arrival, paperwork explaining our mission statement, the services we provide, and which section of the non-profit they qualify for, are provided.
We begin each appointment with an introduction of the ultrasound technician, the goals we hope to reach during this appointment (i.e. gestational dating, fetal development, etc) and any questions they may have regarding the process.
Our main goal through this appointment is to provide education to help women make the choices that best suit their wants and needs.
Your support and contributions will enable us to meet our goals and improve conditions. Your generous donation will fund our mission.
