4D bonding experience (26-32 weeks)

 

Purpose and background

 

3D and 4D obstetric ultrasound scanning is not available on the NHS and delivered as part of your obstetric care.  This is where BabyConnections can offer you and your family an inspirational treat.

3D scans show your baby literally in three dimensions! 4D scans show baby moving in 3D, you can have the opportunity to capture this amazing glimpse of your baby’s world on video for you to take home to treasure and share with family and friends.  We actively encourage you to bring your family in with you to share this potentially once in a lifetime experience.

Unlike the 2D scans which show baby’s internal organs, 3D and 4D scans show baby’s skin and face.  You can see baby’s nose, mouth, catch a smile or even capture baby yawning or sucking their hand.   With revolutionary imaging technology, our aim is to ensure your scan experience is of the highest quality.  Our qualified Sonographers will do their upmost to provide a relaxed, friendly, reassuring bonding experience for you and your guests.

Of course, if you are having a surprise, we will not reveal baby’s gender.  The secret is safe with our Sonographers.  If you would like us to check your baby’s gender, please ask, however remember it is not 100% accurate.

During the course of the scan if factors such as the baby’s position affect the Sonographer’s ability to obtain fantastic images, we will advise you to take a short, gentle walk to try and move the baby.  Sometimes having water, tea or a surgery drink can help.  If the baby hasn’t moved after your walk and drink, we will offer you another opportunity to return for a complimentary scan.

 

Preparation for scans

 

You may find it beneficial to wear a loose fitting top and either trousers or a skirt.  We will protect tour clothes with tissue during your scan.

A full bladder is not needed for your 3D/4D scan, however like all baby scans, the amount of fluid around the baby can assist with clearer pictures.  Research does show that hydration increases the amount of amniotic fluid surrounding the baby.  Clarity is also dependent on factors such as the baby’s position, fluid around baby, the placental location and also the mother’s weight.
