Ultrasound technologies have been used for more than 35 years. So far, there have been no negative effects on the baby when used by a trained and registered sonographer. In addition, our 3D and 4D ultrasounds use the same frequencies your OB/GYN would use in a diagnostic ultrasound. They are safe for both mom and baby.
No. Many things are out of the sonographer’s control, for instance, the baby’s position, the amount of amniotic fluid and the mother’s physical build or skin type. To help ensure your pictures are as clear as possible, many physicians recommend maintaining a healthy fluid intake (water). This helps the amniotic fluid be full and clear.
Be sure to drink a sufficient amount of water in the days prior to your appointment. This will help the amniotic fluid become clear. It is recommended that you drink fruit juice within the hour before your ultrasound to keep the baby awake during your session. (Please follow your doctor’s orders if you have been instructed otherwise. Always follow your doctor’s instructions first).
On occasion, we may not be able to obtain a perfect image of your baby. The mother’s physical body type and low amniotic fluid levels around the baby can affect or limit our abilities. You will be provided with the best possible images. Because our service is mobile, we cannot offer refunds.
Your physician will not be contacted prior to the scan. This is an elective procedure. However, you are required to be under prenatal care. If you have any concerns, contact your physician. As information, ultrasound technicians cannot make a diagnosis.
