3D/4D Ultrasound FAQ
What is elective ultrasound?
We offer 2D, 3D, and 4D ultrasounds to provide a Unique bonding experience for expectant families in a fun relaxing environment. This IS NOT to take place of a complete diagnostic exam performed by your doctor. Woman seeking elective ultrasound services must already be receiving prenatal care by their health care provider to confirm due date and screen for any abnormalities. Our focus is to provide an interactive unhurried session with your baby, rather than screening for abnormalities and taking diagnostic measurements.
Is it safe?
Ultrasound has been used in pregnancy since 1950. Extensive studies have found that ultrasound has not shown to cause any harm to mother or baby. 2D, 3D, and 4D ultrasound emit sound waves—no radiation—into the body listening for return echoes that generates an image.
