We understand that you may have queries regarding our services. For that, we have made list of most frequently asked questions to help you find the information you’re looking for.
What is 4D Ultrasound?
LOOK SHE JUST WAVED! 4D Ultrasound is like a window into the womb, it allows us to see what your little one is up to now a day. If we’re lucky we can capture them sucking their thumps, sticking their tongue out or cracking a smile for the camera, with 4D Ultrasound it allows us to be in the moment with them.
What is HD Live Ultrasound?
OMG THIS LOOKS SO REAL! High definition is the #1 preferred way of watching any form of entertainment, HD live ultrasounds creates highly detailed images of your little butter cups nose, lips eyes and chubby wittle cheeks. We are one of the very few Ultrasound Studios that offer HD Live technology at No Extra Cost!
Is this service covered by insurance?
BUMMER! Unfortunately, our services are not covered by insurance. We are an elective service for entertainment purposes only. We do not replace the care of your routine OB care.
When is the best time for 4D/ HD Live Ultrasounds?
LOOK AT THEM CHUNKY LITTLE CHEEKS! The recommendation is between 26-32 weeks gestation, by this time baby has enough “Baby Fat” to enhance you little ones feature to see if HE or SHE Looks like Mommy or Daddy.
IT’S A LITTLE CRAMED IN HERE! Past 32 weeks of gestation imaging the baby face is more difficult because babies head is more likely engage in Mommy’s pelvis. Although some pretty awesome images has been captured past 32 weeks it decreases the chance to see clear images of your little ones face.
Is 4D/ HD Live Ultrasound safe?
Ultrasound has been used by Obstetricians for many years and is the most trusted and safest alternative in prenatal diagnostic imaging. A statement from the American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine States “There is no confirmed biological effects on patients caused by exposure from present diagnostic instruments”. In addition, our Sonographers are highly trained and certified in following ultrasound guidelines to ensure the safety of our Mommy’s and their precious cargo.

Can I bring my family and friends?

What can I do to prepare for my Ultrasound?
For the week leading up to your appointment we ask that you drink plenty of water. Staying hydrated may increase the amount a fluid that surrounds the baby and contribute to a more crisp, clear defined image.
Am I guaranteed good images?
I CAN’T SEE A THING! Getting great images depends on a number of factors. If the baby decides he/she is not getting payed enough for the film he/she may give us the back or cold shoulder (Just Kidding). Positioning and enough amniotic fluid surrounding your little star influence clarity of the image you see.
