What is a 2D ultrasound?
2D scans are for viewing heartbeat, real-time fetal activity, hair (after 27 weeks) and gender. We perform regular ultrasounds any time after 10 weeks. We always include a regular ultrasound with 3D/4D as they work together to show a full picture of the baby’s features and activity.
2D imagery solely displays height and width, generally appearing as an outline of the baby. The benefit of regular ultrasound is its ability to look “through” obstacles, such as hands on the face.
What is 3D Ultrasound?
3D scans show still pictures of your baby in three dimensions. You can see your baby’s skin rather than the insides. You can see the shape of your baby’s mouth and nose and body.
What is 4D Ultrasound?
4D scans are viewing 3D images of your baby in motion, like a video. You might even be able to spot your baby yawning or sticking their tongue out!
What is a HD Ultrasound?
A unique and moveable light source that not only provides both 3D and 4D imaging but lights up the baby, making it possible for soon-to-be-parents to see the facial expressions of their child. HD Live is an extraordinary new way to capture amazingly realistic images of your baby while he or she is still in the womb. The images are saved in high definition to provide you with superior clarity and image quality unsurpassed in the industry.
Do you take medical insurance?
We do not accept insurance as we are a supplemental service that does not replace your doctor’s care. Please contact your physician if you have questions about insurance and ultrasound scans.
What type of payments do you accept?
Cash, credit, or debit card.
Do I need an appointment?
Yes. An appointment is required. Please call us to schedule an appointment or visit our Book Now option on our site. We do have a 48-hour cancelation or reschedule policy. We ask that you give us at least 48 hours if you need to reschedule or cancel your appointment, if not we will have a $50 charge.
What is your cancellation policy?
Due to popular demand, especially on Friday and Saturday’s, we have a 48 reschedule or cancelation policy. We ask that you give us at least 48 hours from the time of your appointment if you need to reschedule or cancel your appointment so we will have time to fill your spot. If you do not give us at least 48 hours will we will have a $50 charge toward your card.
Can I bring my friends and family?
YES, Absolutely! Anyone you want may join you for your experience. Our rooms accommodate about 8-10 additional people in a warm, inviting environment. Children are welcome.
When is the best time to do a 3D/4D Ultrasound?
We recommend at least 27-32 weeks of gestation (26-28 weeks for twins!). At around 30 weeks, as babies are building more fat, more facial features can be seen. We do see women up to full term, but with variable results. More fat creates pudgy baby images, but the baby gets increasingly crowded at the end of term and may hide. 4D imaging depends upon the baby’s position, size and movement, so we cannot guarantee image quality due to those factors. If the baby is uncooperative and we cannot acquire images of your baby, you do pay at the time services are rendered and invited back for another visit FREE of charge.
What is SneakPeek® Clinical?
SneakPeek® Clinical is an early gender DNA detection test offered to women starting at 9 weeks into pregnancy. The genetic test is designed to work in conjunction with an ultrasound scan for expecting mothers. An on-site phlebotomist draws a blood sample in the comfort of the ultrasound studio, and then returns the sample to SneakPeek® labs for processing. The laboratories offer the fastest turnaround times in the industry, with a choice of receiving your result the same day the sample reaches the SneakPeek® lab.
How does SneakPeek® work?
SneakPeek® utilizes the natural process of shared fetal DNA circulating inside the mother’s bloodstream. Our PCR technology has the ability to detect the presence or absence of male Y chromosome in the blood.
Sample provided starting at 9 weeks into pregnancy. If it is detected then the baby’s gender is male and if it is not detected then the baby’s gender is female.
