UC Baby 3D Ultrasound 27 WEEKS

The experience of a 3d ultrasound session is something that is much anticipated not only by the expecting mother, but by the whole family as well. As for anyone who has not done this before, there are a few questions that one wonders about.

When is the best time for a 3D / 4D ultrasound session?

One can see clear and realistic pictures throughout the pregnancy. If one chooses to get the appointment in early stages of pregnancy (18 to 26 weeks), one can see more of baby movements. Later in the pregnancy when the baby is more developed, one may be able to see more details of the face and less activities of the baby.

*If you are carrying twins, we recommend you to have your 3D session between 23-26 weeks of pregnancy.

Can 3D Ultrasound always guarantee good images of the baby’s face?
A good picture of baby’s face is often obtained, but not always. There are several factors that play a role in determining the clarity of the photos: the baby’s position, the amount of fluid, location of placenta, hands/cord around the face and maternal size can interfere with images of the face.

At UC BABY, we book our clients in one-hour time slots (for the popular Silver Package) to ensure that we spend enough time to satisfy the expectations of our clients and to allow them a good experience of  witnessing their baby in 3D/4D.  In circumstances when the baby’s face is completely hidden throughout the session, we will offer to do a repeat scan at no additional charge.

Motherhood is our most critical responsibility. We need to frequently recharge our resources so that we feel balanced, energized, and able to support our children’s and family’s demands.

10 Stressbusters for Moms

“The best time to rest and relax is when you do not have the time for it.” – UC Baby

Choose a life of less stress by identifying your Stress Points. You can start by following the list below:

  1. Identify both personal and professional reasons for your stress. If you discover that the choice you’ve made isn’t the right one, outline the changes you need to make.
  2. Determine your priorities, rank the importance of your family, your personal needs and your professional identity. Consider the ranking when you’re called to make choices and compromises. Decide when you have to put your identity, your plans, and your self-nurturing on hold while you take care of others.
  3. Schedule at least 15 to 30 minutes for yourself every day. And don’t feel guilty! You deserve it, and you’ll be a better mom because of it.
  4. Remind yourself that the level of stress you experience is directly related to the way you internalize it and the importance you place on your own dramatization.
  5. Look for the hidden factors in your lifestyle that may be robbing your energy off. Make a plan to change or eliminate those influences. Log the times each day when you feel beat or burned out.
  6. Try to schedule your workout for the time of day when you need an energy boost. The hardest part is just starting the workout. But once you do, you’ll be amazed at how much more energy you have — and how much better you feel.
  7. How easy is it for you to say “No”? Respect yourself and your time enough to delegate tasks and refuse to take on more than you can handle.
  8. Don’t multi-task yourself into more stress. When we try to do too much at once, we are raising, not lowering, our stress level. Multi-task only when you can realistically fulfill all tasks adequately. Decide which tasks deserve your full attention. Then give it.
  9. Do you have the support network you need? Ask family members or friends for help. Join other moms or groups that share your hobbies, interests and lifestyle.
  10. Be prepared for the unpredictable. Realize that there will be days when you feel overwhelmed, and days when it feels like you’re not getting anything done. Know that it’s just fine.

To put it simply, “The best time to rest and relax is when you do not have the time for it.”
