This scan includes viewing of your baby in live 4D from available views and thermal B&W 3D scan prints at no extra charge. Please note that 4D preview is a free option and if your baby’s position is not favorable for a picture on the day, we cannot offer a free rescan for this reason
What are 3D/4D scans
- 3D scans are still pictures of your baby in three dimensions. 4D scans show moving 3D images of your baby, with time being the fourth dimension.
- It’s natural to be really excited by the prospect of your first scan. But some mums find the standard 2D scans disappointing when all they see is a grey, blurry outline. This is because the scan sees right through your baby, so the photos show her internal organs.
- With 3D and 4D scans, you see how your baby look like . You may see the shape of your baby’s mouth and nose, or be able to spot her yawning or sticking the tongue out.
- 3D and 4D scans are considered as safe as 2D scans, because the images are made up of sections of two-dimensional images converted into a picture. Our private ultrasound scans do not exceed recommended ALARA (as-low-as-reasonably-achievable) safety limits.
