One of the most blissful moments of a pregnancy has got to be the day you finally get to see your baby's precious face in the ultrasound photo. And some parents even splurge for a 3D picture, because seeing your little one in all his or her glory is priceless. But for one group of parents in Canada--who paid $115 for the privilege--that happy moment didn't last very long, thanks to a 3D ultrasound clinic in Ontario called BabyView Prenatal Imaging.
The Canadian parents' nightmare started when the moms-to-be in Jenn Cusimano's baby group--all due in September--were sharing their 3D pictures and Cusimano and another woman noticed their photos looked exactly alike.

When they compared notes, they both realized they'd gone to the same clinic, about a month apart. When Cusimano and the other mom called the clinic they got the runaround.Then Cusimano posted the photos to Facebook along with her complaint. And other parents began to post the same identical photo--soon she was up to 11 parents who'd gotten the same exact photo!
Eventually, 30 parents came forward to say they'd gotten the identical ultrasound pic. When the clinic was contacted by the Canadian news media, the owner blamed the mistake on a computer glitch/virus and promised to make good with a free session for all the parents involved. But since Cusimano is still hearing from the clinic's other clients--and feels that the number of parents who got those generic photos is growing--she's banding together with them and contemplating legal action.
