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.
