How to choose the perfect 3D/4D facility:
When choosing a facility for just about any service, there are a lot of common factors you look into when making your choice. You might consider the pricing, quality, customer service and location. In the case of ultrasound imaging, however, you should keep in mind that you are receiving a service with prescription medical equipment, so simply having the lowest prices and a few online reviews shouldn’t do it for you.
Particularly, when choosing a facility for prenatal imaging, make sure that it has a medical oversight, the staff is properly certified and trained, and that it’s not just another “prenatal photography studio”.
Some other things you might want to consider are: the types of of packages offered and the items included, the facility’s policy for return visits if you are unable to see your baby’s face, and policies regarding family members and friends in the viewing room.
But most importantly, find a place that makes you feel comfortable with a staff that understands your specific needs and concerns, and employs sonographers that are experienced in ultrasound procedures for medical purposes, not simply limited to elective prenatal imaging.
Preparing for a 3D & 4D ultrasound session:
We recommend that you wear comfortable clothing, preferably two-piece. Remember, our sonographer will need to access your abdomen during the 3D/4D ultrasound session. To help you obtain the best pictures, be sure to drink plenty of water and other fluids 4 to 5 days before your appointment. Hydration can increase the amniotic fluid and improve the clarity of your ultrasound. You don’t need to have a full bladder.
The nine months of pregnancy can be really stressful – each day is full of anticipation and mystery. A 3D/4D ultrasound helps you capture some of that excitement and alleviate some of your stress. This technology produces a recognizable face of the baby that lives in the heart of every mother and father, that’s why so many parents are choosing 3D/4D baby ultrasound imaging. It’s more affordable than you might think, and every bit is as wonderful as you have heard!
