Why Ultrascan?

1 What will I see?

At 24 weeks your baby is approx 8 ½ inches and has started reacting to noises.

Using 4D baby scan medical imaging software we are able to blend thousands of 3D images to create a video of your child from within the womb, this is the time when you may get to see your child smiling, waving or sucking on their thumb. It will also be a time at which you should be able to see in great detail, the facial features of your baby.

2 When can I get a 3D/4D scan?

We recommend having a 3D/4D Baby Scan between 24-weeks and 33-weeks pregnant.

3 What are the benefits?

We believe that 3D/4D baby scans can help both parents develop an early bond with their baby, similarities of facial features between parents and child can generally be seen from 24 weeks pregnant.

The 3D/4D ultrasound imaging method allows you to see your baby like never before. You’ll see your baby’s facial features and even video of him/her moving. You might even catch them sucking their thumb, waving or smiling.

Generally, from 24 weeks pregnant onwards there is sufficient fat under the skin to allow facial features to be seen.

At 32-34 weeks pregnant the baby will begin to shift in preparation for birth and it can become more difficult to obtain clear ultrasound images.

How much you see of your baby during the 3D/4D ultrasound will really depend on the way the baby is positioned. If your baby is facing outwards and there is sufficient fluid surrounding their little face, then you will be in luck.

If at the beginning of the scan your baby is facing away from the transducer, our sonographer may suggest you have a cold drink, talk to your baby or gently massage your abdomen.

These strategies may help to encourage your baby to move into another position and allow us to get the clear images you were hoping for.

With UltraScan you can have your images and videos sent to you via Whatsapp or email. This enables you to share them easily and download them for safekeeping.

You will receive 5 glossy small photo prints and your two favourite scan pictures professionally printed in 6”x4” photos.

Two other people can attend your appointment with you.

  • No, after 33-weeks the baby will usually start to get into position for birth so the ultrasound imaging software would not be able to see them in such detail.  At 32-34 weeks pregnant the baby will begin to shift in preparation for birth and it can become more difficult to obtain clear ultrasound images.

Having a 3D ultrasound scan is a very similar process to having a 2D ultrasound. Although the procedures are similar, there are different levels of technology used to produce our 3D scan images. During a 3D scan, thousands of still images of your baby are taken at once through sound waves. They are then translated by medical software into 3-dimensional images which are almost as clear as a real-life photograph.
