Early Pregnancy Scan
Early Pregnancy Scans will enable you to see your baby from 10 weeks into your pregnancy and are conducted in 2D.
We recommend our 'EARLY REASSURANCE SCAN' or our ‘PEEK-A-BOO!’ package for early pregnancy scans.
During your scan, our Ultrasound Technician will capture images of your baby for you to choose from*. (Please refer to our individual Packages for more information.)
We use a trans-abdominal probe not a trans-vaginal probe. We must stress that it is very important that you attend your routine NHS scan appointments.
* Please Note: We are a non-diagnostic clinic. Should we notice something unusual we will refer you back to your appropriate Health Professional for further medical investigation.
Gender Scans are as the name suggests, a scan to determine the sex of your baby.
These scans can take place from 16 weeks and can be performed as part of your bonding scan experience.
Our sexing scan is a combination of 2D and 3D/4D to identify the sex of your baby and is generally 99% accurate**.
Gender Identification can be added to any package for an additional cost of £10.
** Please Note: We require a clear image of ‘baby’ to determine the sex. If we are unable to obtain this at the appointment due to the positioning of ‘baby' – we will of course advise you and the £10 Gender Identification fee will not apply.
3D/4D Bonding Scan
A 3D scan provides you with a three dimensional image of your baby, whereas a 4D scan is a moving version of a 3D scan.
As our state of the art machine incorporates the HD-Live technology, you can see your precious little one doing things that cannot otherwise be seen in 2D – such as sucking their thumb, opening their eyes, blowing bubbles or smiling in real-time via our 40 inch TV screen. This allows you to have an insight into their activity within the womb in full high-definition, capturing the clearest possible images of your baby!
As we want you to remember your visit to My Baby Company and your 3D/4D scanning experience for the rest of your life – we have a variety of bespoke merchandise available to purchase***.
The best time for 4D is 24-31 weeks. However we have had amazing images from 16-36 weeks (this is dependent on the placenta position in later pregnancy).
If the placenta is anterior (front) it is recommended that you come no later than 27 weeks, however we are happy to try outside of this time frame, but due to the cost of our Ultrasound Technicians’ time we are not able to offer a refund, should we be unable to get a clear image of your baby.
*** Please Note: Depending on which package you choose, some merchandise items may be included.
