Episode 43: Purusha Rivera – Courage to Follow Your Passion
Purusha Rivera is the President of My Baby’s Heartbeat Bear and My FurBaby’s Heartbeat Bear located, where else but Bear, Delaware.
A lifelong passion for children led her on a journey to a career in pregnancy sonograms and a life full of three happy children at home.
After graduating in 2000 with a degree in Diagnostic Medical Sonography, Purusha became a Registered Diagnostic Medical Sonographer specializing in OB/GYN. With a determined spirit, and a heart for the trade, she paved her way into the medical pregnancy community.
In 2009, Purusha discovered the amazing bears that record a baby’s heartbeat while in utero. She was working as a private contractor after 8 years working in a hospital and decided to go the contractor route so she could spend more time with her children and focus on my dream – providing expecting mothers with the ultrasound experience she thought they deserved. Part of that included creating a memory that would last a lifetime, one that each mother could hold near and dear to her heart – her baby’s heartbeat.
Purusha started offering the bears to her patients and they loved them! It didn’t take long before grandparents–to-be, other family members, and friends started purchasing the bears as gifts for expecting mothers. Big siblings wanted in on the bears too! Purusha began recording their sweet little voices sending messages to their soon-to-be baby sibling.
The My Baby’s Heartbeat Bear kit comes with an adorable stuffed animal and a red “heart” recorder. A second recorder can be ordered to include a voice message from someone special.
Purusha says, “This journey is still in its infancy. As we are growing and expanding each day. I will always celebrate the joy that this gift brings to expecting families. I love what I do, and that I am surrounded by family each day of work. I am blessed to have found my passion, pursued it, and am able to share it with the world. I hope that My Baby’s Heartbeat Bear can bring you as much happiness as it’s brought me and my family.”
