Our Frequently Asked Questions

Why should I choose Baby Glimpse?

With over 7000 FB likes and countless fantastic reviews, we are Sydney's most popular and trusted expert in 3D/4D ultraound. Our fully qualified sonographers' expertise is unparalleled, using our exclusive Toshiba technology, our photos are second to none.


When can I have a 3D/4D ultrasound?

We do gender scans from 14 weeks and the best time to see your baby's face is around 30 weeks. If you're anxious to see your baby, we can scan you much earlier than 14 weeks for reassurance. We also scan mums as late as 39 weeks with great facial photos.


Am I guaranteed to see my baby's face very clearly?

For babies younger than 23 weeks the face won't be clear. For older babies we absolutely do our best to get the best photos, but the clarity depends on baby size and position, placenta location and amniotic fluid level, these are out of our control therefore individual results will vary. Your photos are as unique as you and your baby!


What if I cannot see my baby's face at all?

If bub is stubborn, you'll be asked to walk around have a cold drink, you will be rescanned or rebooked depending on the sonographer's assessment. On extremely rare occasions, despite all our endeavours, we cannot see baby's face at all. In these cases no payment is required.


Is 3D/4D ultrasound safe?

3D/4D ultrasound uses the same machine as a normal ultrasound, but a special computer program allows us to see the baby differently. Ultrasound has been in use for decades with no known side effects.


Do I need a Doctor's referral or can I gethealth fund rebates?
