What is the difference between 3D ultrasound and 4D ultrasound?
3D is a still image while 4D adds the dimension of motion so it looks like a video. Or you can say 4D is real- time, spent with baby and 3D is all the pictures saved you get to go home with.
What is your facility like?
Relaxing, comfortable, and spacious environment for you and your family. Our scan room feels like a movie night with the family. Our theater room comfortably fits up to 8-10 guests. For full enjoyment and fulfillment of our exclusive Parental Connection experience especially in the 3rd Trimester we ask that you limit participants to 4 guests not including mom and dad. Believe it or not your baby can feel overwhelmed with too much attention from different directions. We pride ourselves in bonding and focused connection, big parties are very much welcome for gender reveals and our 15 Minute 4D session which does not include the Prenatal Connection Experience.
Do you accept insurance?
Our services are private and out of pocket so you will have to cover the price of any service you chose. Our diagnostic services are accompanied by a detailed receipt that may be submitted to your insurance for possible coverage.
We do accept FSA/HSA cards.
We believe that ANYTIME is a great time to spend with your baby. At every stage something is new and your baby is present and ready to connect and has been since 8 weeks (we can see them wiggle). So the question becomes, what are you hoping to see? Many mothers like coming in twice, early on, 14-25 weeks, when they can see the baby as a whole, and then again at 26-34 weeks to see a more detailed face. Between 28 and 32 weeks, your baby develops more fat and gets a more defined face.
When is the best time to have a 3d/4d ultrasound?
100% Gender Assurance and if for any reason your baby’s genitalia is not fully settled and gender cannot be determined at your session time, we will warmly invite you back in up to 2 weeks and take a look then. Return check will be determined by session ultrasound clinician based on observations made during first visit.
How good are you at determining the sex of the baby?
When booking you will be given very detailed instructions on how to properly prepare for our ultrasound sessions, but most doctors recommend maintaining a healthy fluid intake, especially while you are pregnant. This will help to ensure your amniotic fluid is clear as well as full. Ultrasound clarity is heavily dependent on amniotic fluid levels. Remember there are many things out of the ultrasound clinicians control like the baby's position, the mother's tissue thickness, type and build as well as womb structures such as the placenta and umbilical cord. Your baby loves these structures so get ready to understand them and their preferences with Womb INsight.
How can I be sure to get the best possible 3D/4D pictures?
Depending on the ultrasound package that you select, your session will last between 10 and 30 minutes. However, plan on spending at least 45 minutes to an hour at our studio so that we can send you home with memories to last a lifetime. It is best to arrive a few minutes early to fill out our paperwork, you can maximize the time you have in the scan room this way. Most babies need time to relax to give you their best.
How long is the 3D/4D ultrasound session?
3D and 4D ultrasound use the same frequency as your doctor uses in the basic 2D ultrasound view. Ultrasounds have been used for over 35 years and there have been no proven side effects from its proper use. We strictly adhere to the FDA's and ALARA standards. Beyond these basic accepted standards we have a “fetus first” approach, although the machine itself is rendered safe, the technician if unexperienced can hurt mom and baby. We only use methods that guarantee the safest ultrasound experience possible along with ultrasound clinicians who have years
How safe is this?
Yes! We encourage you to bring anyone you want to share this special experience with you. We provide plenty of toys and books to keep them entertained if our projected ultrasound picture on the wall is not enough.
Can I bring my other children?
We currently accept VISA/MC credit/debit cards and cash.
What form of payment can I use?
Just minutes after your session completion. Just give us some time to print and prepare your keepsakes and you go home with everything that day!
When do I get my 3D/4D pictures and videos?
We do not contact your doctor prior to the scan since this is an elective procedure. If we do see something anything of concern during the scan, we contact your doctor and send her the report. We do require however that you currently are under prenatal care and if you have any concerns, you should ask your doctor. Ultrasound technicians in general cannot make a diagnosis.
