Q: What is an elective prenatal ultrasound?
We offer elective 2D, 3D & 4D/HD prenatal ultrasounds to provide a positive bonding experience for the mother, father and family members with the unborn baby. We feel that realistic surface images provide a connection between the parents and baby that can be beneficial to the whole family. We make no claims that 3-D as used in this examination is performed to better assess the baby for abnormalities. A routine ultrasound examination must have already been performed to assess the gestational age of the fetus and to evaluate for fetal anomalies as well as the basic components of fetal anatomy recommended for screening.
Q: Does this take the place of an ultrasound at my doctor's office?
No, women seeking an elective prenatal ultrasound with Peek at Baby 4D Ultrasound must provide proof they are receiving treatment with a healthcare provider for prenatal care and have already undergone a medical, diagnostic ultrasound ordered by their provider to confirm their due date, screen for fetal anomalies, and to look for any other pregnancy related issues. The issues that we are evaluating in the elective prenatal ultrasound session include a limited diagnostic scan to confirm heartbeat, the number of babies in the pregnancy, the position of the baby, and the placental location. Please note, at no time is this exam to be used in place of a complete diagnostic ultrasound.
Q: Is it safe? Are there any risks to me, or my baby?
Extensive studies over 40 years have found that ultrasound has not been shown to cause any harm to mother or baby. Routine scanning of all pregnancies is now normal throughout the United States. In 3D/4D scanning exactly the same type and intensity of ultrasound is used as with conventional 2D scanning. 3D and 4D Ultrasound both utilize sound waves to look inside the body. The technology is similar to radar. A probe placed on the body emits sound waves into the body, listens for the return echo and generates an image. 4D ultrasound will be similar to a conventional scan in terms of exposure.
Q: Do I need an appointment?
Yes, appointments are necessary for all of our services.
Q: How long does the 3D and 4D ultrasound take?
Depending on the package you choose, the 4D ultrasound session will last between 20 and 30 minutes.
Q: How far along should I be before I have a 2D/3D/4D ultrasound?
We perform 2D gender determination scans starting at only the 14th week of pregnancy. If you plan on having only one 3D/4D ultrasound examination, we recommend having the examination performed between the 25th and 35th week of your pregnancy. However, excellent images of your baby can be obtained anytime after about 22 weeks of pregnancy. Many mothers take advantage of our unlimited return package and obtain more than one 4D ultrasound and have images to enjoy from their second and third trimesters.
Q: Will I always get a beautiful image of my baby?
Unfortunately there are no guarantees. There are things that are beyond our control. The baby's position, the amount and clarity of amniotic fluid, and the mothers body type. We have an experienced sonographer who is innovative and this rarely becomes a problem. If it does happen we encourage you to come back another day for a complimentary rescan. We want everyone to be totally satisfied.
Q: Will I have to pay if I am not satisfied with the results?
Our best customer is a happy one. We get more business from word of mouth than anything else. In the rare event the baby is in a position that does not allow for satisfactory pictures we'll make arrangements to have you try again.
Q: Can I bring my family and friends?
Absolutely, this is a family event. Our viewing room is large and cozy to accommodate your family and friends.
Q: Are you able to tell the sex of the baby?
Yes, in most cases we can provide an indication of the sex of the baby. We can't however guarantee that the baby will cooperate during your session. Certain factors such as body tissue content, developmental stage and fetal position all affect the ability to determine sex.
Q: Is the 4D ultrasound covered by Insurance?
This is an elective procedure so they do not cover it. We do accept MasterCard, Visa, Discover and cash. We cannot accept personal checks.
Q: How much does it cost?
We have packages to fit just about anyone's budget. We continuously strive to provide the highest quality products and packages at the most affordable costs.
