- What are 2D, 3D, 4D, and HD ultrasounds?
A 2D ultrasound is the standard black and white image which we use to look at the profile and internal structures of the baby.
A 3D ultrasound allows us to see the surface of the baby’s face in a still image.
A 4D ultrasound is a surface view that you can see in live motion. You can see the baby yawn or move their hands.
HD refers to a special software package that allows us to see baby’s features more clearly, along with special lighting features.
Our ultrasound machine, the GE Voluson E6 is the best of the best at displaying all of these types of pictures.
- Is my elective ultrasound covered by insurance?
Insurance does not pay for the ultrasound that we perform. Our ultrasounds are for your enjoyment and do not replace any diagnostic ultrasound you may have. Some FSA and HSA plans may reimburse you for your elective ultrasound. Check with your employer to be sure.
- How long will my appointment be?
Plan on arriving 10-15 minutes early, to fill out paperwork. Depending on the package that you have booked, you will be in the room for approximately 30-45 minutes from the start of your appointment time.
- What if I am unhappy with my pictures?
Most of the time, if you follow our Tips and Tricks and you are at the optimal time in your pregnancy, we can get some really awesome pictures and video!
If the quality of the picture is affected by baby’s position, we can employ several methods to encourage movement. If we run short on time, we can reschedule you for a second session for free. There are some other factors that can be beyond our control, but a great session can still happen. If your BMI is in the higher range, it will affect the quality of the image. Our GE Voluson E6 has technology that will overcome this better than any other machine on the market. Our goal is to get you the best images that ultrasound can achieve!
- Is this safe for me and my baby?
Ultrasound has been used to see into the womb for over 35 years. No adverse effects have been found. As trained sonographers, we utilize the same safety rules as we would in any medical setting.
- Can you tell the gender?
Yes, any time after 12 weeks. However sometimes baby’s position and other factors can limit the view. If you are 12 weeks or more and we cannot see the gender, we can reschedule you for a second session, on a weekday (gender determination only).
- What if I don’t want to know the gender?
Mum’s the word! We are experts at keeping the gender a secret. Please let us know your preference before we begin your session.
