HOW MANY IMAGES AND VIDEO WILL I GET?

WHAT IS 2D, 3D 4D & 5D ULTRASOUND?
2D- 2D is a regular ultrasound in 2 Dimensional format which means it takes pictures from one angle at a time (flat image). 2D sees through everything including the skeletal structure to the organs hence it is the main choice for Medical Diagnostic Ultrasound. The image is black and white and often grainy in appearance but it is still absolutely beautiful to watch, many parents still prefer this method.
3D- In 3 Dimensional format everything becomes solid in appearance. The 3D image is projected from 3 different angles, software merges these together to create the 3D image. 3D still images show the curves and rounded shape of the baby's body and limbs.
Some businesses will offer 3D imaging with movement, this is multiple 3D images re-played to give the appearance of movement and there is a time delay.
4D- 4 Dimensional Ultrasound creates a whole new and exciting dimension to this service and represents the difference between video and still photography. Through this revolutionary technology, 4D adds the element of REAL TIME!...The result is live action images of your unborn baby similar to the process of taking direct video footage and playing it instantly through your TV. With this technology our machine offers Speckle Reduction Technology which also gives a higher quality image.
5D i-Live- Is an Auto Populated Image of Bubs in the womb. The Mindray Ultrasound generates a Realistic I-Live View and uses the Virtual Light Source Capability allowing a variety of shading and imagery that shows bubs in the best natural form.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF ULTRASOUND SCANS?
2D, 3D and 4D ultrasound is a wonderful early bonding experience for the people in your baby's life as it encourages curiosity, support and increased excitement for the pregnancy and the mother.
5D imaging gives viewers an increased feeling of baby reality which is especially wonderful for the father and the baby's siblings as it also makes them feel more involved in the pregnancy. Viewers usually feel a strong sense of closeness and connection with the baby as they watch his or her beautiful real time movements come to life.
Each beautiful baby is an individual so each scan will be uniquely different in his or her own special way.
Throughout various stages babies have been see sucking their thumbs, grabbing their noses and ears, sucking on umbilical cord, rolling over & doing little salsa dances it is truly is a wonderful experience!
We encourage loved ones to relax and enjoy baby's adorable show without having a high expectation of what you want to see, this will help you to thoroughly enjoy your viewing.
Some Parents choose to showcase their Babyview Images and Videos at their GENDER REVEAL or Babyshower which is a wonderful bonding experience for guests!
CAN I HAVE MORE THAN ONE SCAN?
Some parents choose to have multiple scans at selected dates throughout their whole pregnancy. This is a great option if you want a full Pregnancy Ultrasound Diary to keep and show your baby/child years later.
After your 3rd Babyview visit we give our clients an exclusive Babyview VIDEO capturing the best of your 3 scans combined and edited to music.
ARE SCANS SAFE?
Ultrasound has been used for over a decade. With extensive research there is nothing to suggest any harm to the pregnancy, mother or baby.
WHAT IS NON-DIAGNOSTIC ULTRASOUND?
NON-DIAGNOSTIC ULTRASOUND does not replace your recommended DIAGNOSTIC ULTRASOUNDS as advised by your physician. We do not give you any diagnostic measurements that your physician will need.
WHAT HAPPENS AT A BABYVIEW APPOINTMENT?
Our friendly all female team will welcome you upon arriving. The mother remains fully clothed in her own comfortable clothing that can easily show the tummy. (Dresses are not recommended but we have a soft blanket if you forget :)
Mum lays in a comfortable position and she is given a towel to tuck into her clothing.
There is no need to push on probes (transducers) so the only uncomfortable feeling you might get is that of the ultrasound gel on the belly however we have a gel warmer to make it more comfortable.
Now you will start your amazing Baby Viewing Experience!
Quality and quantity of images and video depend on the pregnancy week, the mothers hydration and baby's position at the time of scanning.
For optimal results drink 2 to 3 litres of water for 5 days leading up to your scan to ensure there is plenty of amniotic fluid surrounding the baby. HOW MUCH WATER SHOULD I DRINK THROUGH PREGNANCY?
* You do not need to drink excess water directly before your appointment *
WHEN SHOULD I BOOK MY SCAN?
You can book in any time without a Physician/Doctor Refferal.
Some like to have their first scan from 6 weeks.
Gender Determination is offered from 15 Weeks..
From 24 weeks the facial features are more prominent as bubs puts on approximately 250 grams of body fat each week after this time, fingers and toes look more distinctive and can be seen wriggling or being sucked on.
Most clients book between 28 to 34 weeks for facial features. The longer you are in gestation the more squished they will appear.
Keep in mind that the further along you are in your pregnancy, the less room your baby has to move.
GENDER DETERMINATION, IS IT A BOY OR GIRL?
We offer EARLY GENDER DETERMINATION from 15 weeks.
WHAT ARE THE PAYMENT METHODS?
Payments can be made via EFTPOS or CASH on the day after your scan is completed or via ONLINE TRANSFER before the date of your scan.
(Sorry no refunds are offered)
CAN I HAVE A 4D SCAN WITH AN ANTERIOR OR POSTERIOR PLACENTA?
YES! Our new technology can be used with any placenta position!
The Mindray ultrasound tools allow us to auto populate baby's face beyond the placenta and simply remove an anterior obstruction.
