Prenatal Imaging Frequently Asked Questions 

What happens If we don’t get our photos or gender during the appointment?2022-05-09T11:13:45+00:00

We have a rescan policy that if the baby is uncooperative or low amniotic fluid levels, we get you another appointment for free.We do our best to guarantee the best service and photos we can provide. 

How early can I find out the gender of my baby?2022-05-09T11:12:55+00:00

We can determine gender via Ultrasound as early as 14 weeks 

Is the Ultrasound Harmful to my baby?2022-05-09T11:12:25+00:00

No, there has been no evidence or harm caused by the sound waves generated by the machine. You may get as many scans as you want!

What equipment do you use for the ultrasound?2022-05-09T11:12:00+00:00

We use a Voluson S8 HD Ultrasound machine to get the best photos possible.

How many guests can I bring?2022-05-09T11:11:11+00:00

We can comfortably fit up to 6 plus mother to be to make a total of seven (7) people

Can I bring Children?2022-05-09T11:10:48+00:00

You are free to bring any member of your family regarding age. The only thing we ask is if the little one gets wild or loud it makes it difficult for the tech to get the desired photos. If it happens you may be asked to have the little one wait in the lobby with the parents or the guardian until the appointment is finished.

Do you take measurements and weight?2022-05-09T11:10:29+00:00

Unfortunately due to the state of California there are laws that prevent us from telling you any medical answers regarding your little one as we need a practitioners license to do so. We are an Elective Ultrasound, we only take fun photos!

Can I record on my phone?2022-05-09T11:09:41+00:00

Yes, we understand that this is a special moment and any personal electronics can be used to record the session.

How do I prepare for the appointment?2022-05-09T11:09:15+00:00

Wear something comfortable. A dress is not recommended for the appointment, something that exposes the belly easiest, loose fit clothing works best. Drink plenty of water, we recommend around a gallon a day for 3-5 days before your appointment time to rejuvenate the amniotic fluid and to ensure the best photos possible.

How soon can my first Ultrasound be?2022-05-09T11:08:45+00:00

Your first Ultrasound can be as early as 7 gestational weeks.

What is your facility like?2022-04-27T20:48:54+00:00

Our center’s main focus is family, from before birth on up. We offer a comfortable and relaxing space for you and yours. We even have an interactive children’s area to keep little ones happy and entertained.

What is the difference between 2D, 3D and 4D ultrasound?2022-04-27T20:46:33+00:00

A 2D image is the familiar, one-dimensional, black-and-white picture used for diagnostic scans and gender reveals. 3D adds dimension, color and the ability to print off scans or save them to a CD. With this scan, you’re able to see more of what your baby looks like, from its tiny fingers to its cute, button nose. 4D imaging is the most cutting-edge of all ultrasound technology and involves seeing your baby’s movements and personality through 3D video captured on a keepsake DVD.


What is the process? What should I expect at my appointment?2022-04-27T20:46:58+00:00

You remain dressed throughout the ultrasound, so it’s best to wear a comfortable pair of pants and top that are easy to move up and down (a dress with shorts underneath is also fine). Plan on arriving 10-15 minutes early; you’ll be greeted by our friendly reception team and given forms to fill out. Once your room is ready, you will be taken back to see your baby on screen for the first time.

How many people are allowed in the room?2022-04-27T20:47:41+00:00

Our rooms comfortably seats up to 3 people, but accomodations can be made if your party is larger.

Do you offer any discounts?2022-04-27T15:32:36+00:00

We offer many discounts to make seeing your little one easier financially. Contact us for more information. Some of the discounts that we offer are:

$25 discount on any return visit during the same pregnancy

$25 off repeat clients’ 3D/4D package choice for future pregnancy

$15 off any package for military, Law enforcement, and firefighters

What type of ultrasound machine is used?2022-04-27T20:48:06+00:00

Our state-of-the-art facility uses the best equipment, including our innovative GE Voluson 730 for premium 2D, 3D and 4D/HD imaging.

What should I do prior to the 3D/4D appointment to get the best images possible?2022-04-27T15:33:38+00:00

Drink 3+ extra litres of water a day starting 3-5 days before your appointment. This will increase the volume and clarity of your amniotic fluid.  Please follow all doctor’s orders if they vary from anything listed here.

When is the best time to have a 3D/4D ultrasound?2022-04-27T20:48:31+00:00

For a gender reveal, the best time for quality imaging is 17 weeks or beyond. They can, however, be performed anytime after 15 weeks. When you want good shots of your baby’s facial expressions, 28 to 32 weeks is ideal.
