4. Informed Consent, Waiver of Liability and Release
You agree to sign (execute) the following Informed Consent, Waiver of Liability and Release Form before receiving any services at Prenatal Imaging Centers and certify that you have read and understand the content of that Form:
INFORMED CONSENT, WAIVER OF LIABILITY AND RELEASE
Prenatal Care: I acknowledge that I have been informed by Prenatal Imaging Centers that prenatal care is important to a healthy pregnancy. Prenatal Imaging Centers’ services do not constitute prenatal care, and any image produced in my sonography session cannot substitute for a physician’s medical sonogram. I am currently receiving prenatal care, and my doctor has been informed and has no objections to my attending this sonography session.
Concerns Should Be Referred to Physician: I have also been informed that use of Prenatal Imaging Centers’ services can not substitute for care of a physician. I further understand that no diagnosis will be made during this session regarding normal development or abnormalities of the fetus. If I have any concerns regarding my pregnancy, I will contact my doctor. I will in no way rely upon PrenatalImagingCenters or its services for medical advice.
No Professional Negligence Claims: I am purchasing Prenatal Imaging Centers’ services and products for keepsake, non-medical purposes only. The sonographer providing services at Prenatal Imaging Centers is not providing medical care. I agree that I have no right to recourse against Prenatal Imaging Centers in any medical malpractice, professional negligence, or any medical related claim arising out of or in any way related to my pregnancy or the birth of my child. This includes any claim for error in sex determination.
Assumption of Risks: I acknowledge that there is inherent risk in any activity involving a fetus and there are potential risks in these sonography sessions. I understand Prenatal Imaging Centers follows FDA recommendations for length of scan and frequency of ultrasound sound waves. I acknowledge that it is my responsibility to inform myself of the possible risks and decide whether to participate in this sonography session. I hereby voluntarily assume all risk of harm or injury to me or my fetus resulting from the services provided by Prenatal Imaging Centers.
Waiver and Release of Claims: I hereby waive, release, acquit and forever discharge Prenatal Imaging Centers from any and all claims, expenses, demands, costs, causes of action, and other actions and liabilities, of any nature whatsoever, whether known or unknown, whether in law or equity, that I or my baby may have arising out of or in any way related to my visit to Prenatal Imaging Centers. This includes claims of negligence. I agree that I shall have no right whatsoever to file any lawsuit or institute any other action or legal proceedings of any type arising out of or in any way related to my visit to Prenatal Imaging Centers.
I hereby expressly waive the benefits and rights of California Civil Code section 1542, and agree that this agreement is intended to include in its effect, without limitation, all claims and causes of action related to my visit with Prenatal Imaging Centers that I do not know or suspect to exist in my favor and that this release contemplates the extinguishment of all such claims and causes of action.
Prenatal Imaging Centers: As defined in this document, Prenatal Imaging Centers shall include Sonotech, Inc. D.B.A. Prenatal Imaging Centers, its owners, officers, agents, employees, independent contractors, attorneys, and affiliated related entities.
Picture Quality and Sex of Fetus: I understand picture quality is dependent on many factors, and that Prenatal Imaging Centers is not always able to obtain clear or quality pictures of every fetus. I further understand that when the sex of the fetus is observed by the sonographer, it is important to know that the observation is never 100% accurate, and, therefore, I should not rely on this information for making significant decisions, purchases or otherwise. I understand no refunds are available if Prenatal Imaging Centers is unable to obtain pictures or sex of the fetus.
Binding Effect: I understand and acknowledge that this Waiver and Release is a binding legal document that affects my legal rights and remedies. I further understand and acknowledge that this Waiver and Release binds not only me, but also my spouse, children, heirs, representatives, distributes, guardians, and assigns.
Minors: I understand that to participate in this elective sonography session, I must be 18 years or older, and that if I am a minor, I must provide a parent or guardian consent, and I must be accompanied by the consenting party. /end of form/

The deposit is applied towards the purchase price of your session and is fully refundable if you cancel your appointment with at least 24 hours notice. If the notice is less than 24 hours of in case of no-show, you will forfeit the deposit.
Please Note: It is the client’s responsibility to be ready for their service at the allocated time. Prenatal Imaging Centers can not be held responsible for any delays the client experiences in getting to our facility and if a client misses their appointment due to arriving late and after their specified check-in time, then PIC can not guarantee being able to re-schedule their appointment within any requested times for any future dates. Where possible, we will always try to re-schedule any missed appointments, however, this will depend on the capacity on the day and the client may face losing their appointment without a refund.
We offer a flexible and fair cancellation policy. Should you need to cancel or reschedule your appointment for any reason, we ask that you please call 48 hours ahead of your scheduled time. Also, please be sure to arrive on time for your appointment. If you are more than 15 minutes late, we may have to reschedule your appointment in order to ensure minimal wait times for our clients.

You may call or email us if you need to reschedule your appointment at any time. There is no charge for rescheduling.

9. Free Come Back Policy
We promise to make every effort to obtain the best possible images of your baby. We cannot ensure that the images will be similar to those you might have seen elsewhere, or even from our office, or that we can always meet everyone’s expectations. Every baby scans differently, depending on its gestational age, position, amount of amniotic fluid, and mother’s body type. Sometimes if the baby is persistently looking face down, i.e. towards your spine, it may be difficult to see the baby’s face. If this happens, a repeat scan might succeed if the baby has turned to a better position for imaging.For our clients’ satisfaction we have designed the following Free Come Back Policy: If your baby was not in a favorable position for 3d/4d ultrasound imaging, we will do a second 15 min scan free of charge, considering that the duration of your purchased session wasn’t exceeded (15 min for Sneak Peek Session, 25 min for Basic Session and 35 min for Premium Session). You will also be offered an option to extend your purchased ultrasound session for 15 min at no charge instead of coming back at another date. Of course, this option will only be available if our appointment schedule will allow us to extend your session. This Free Come Back Policy is valid within 30 days of the initial appointment, Tuesday to Fridays only.
Please be sure to arrive on time for your appointment. If you are more than 15 minutes late or do not show, your Free 15 minutes re-scan will be forfeited.
10. Using our Skype Station
During your visit, we can provide you with a use of our Skype Station. You can show your ultrasound session to anyone in the world.
