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 on 3D/4D ultrasound 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 often scan mums as late as 38 weeks with great facial photos.


Will I get to see my baby's face very clearly on 3D/4D ultrasound?

For babies younger than 23 weeks the face won't be clear on 3D/4D ultrasound. For older babies we absolutely do our best to get the best photos, just look at our gallery and FB page, however 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 3D/4D ultrasound 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 get health fund rebates?

No referrals needed or health fund rebate is applicable as our 3D/4D ultrasound service and images are NOT for medical or diagnostic purposes. It is the patient's responsibility to ensure all medical scans are carried out.
