November '11 - Role Model Entrepreneur Shortlisted for NatWest Everywoman Award.

November The emotion of her first pregnancy sparked Jan Steward’s business idea. Her working experience with time-constrained NHS antenatal scans fuelled the idea to create the UK’s first affordable private scanning service, allowing new parents the time to savour the momentous news. 

The success of Babybond® scans, offered by Ultrasound Direct, has led the Rutland based businesswoman to be named today as a leading contender for this year’s NatWest everywoman Awards, one of Britain’s most revered prizes honouring British entrepreneurial success. Jan recognised that pregnancy scans are either a time for celebration or sorrow if the findings are not as hoped. Experiencing first-hand the limited service offered by the NHS, she saw an opportunity to provide private scans offering more choice and availability for mothers.

Now in their ninth year, the everywoman awards recognise and celebrate the achievements of female entrepreneurs. By raising the profile of successful business women, the awards aim to encourage others to see enterprise as a viable career choice.
