What is the difference between the 3D & 4D ultrasound?
The 3D scan produces a frozen image while the 4D scan adds the dimension of movement so that you can see your baby moving in 3D.
- We have a spacious studio with seating for 5. We do not put a limit on the number of guests you may bring. Children are welcome.
- A big screen TV allows everyone to have a great view.
- Our Millbrook Rd location in the North Hills area of Raleigh is just minutes from both the I-440 Beltline and I-540.
We accept Visa, Mastercard, debit cards and cash. A valid credit card or debit card is required to schedule your appointment. If you'll be using the same card to book and to pay for your session you must bring it with you on the day of your appointment.
- No. Insurance does not cover elective ultrasounds.
- We do not accept HSA's as payment.
No. Babygram is an elective, non-diagnostic ultrasound and will in no way replace a diagnostic scan done at the OB office. We do not measure or evaluate the well-being of your baby in any way.
Ultrasound has been researched extensively for over 35 years. No known harmful effects have been found for the mother or the fetus. Your 3D/4D ultrasound session uses the very same type of ultrasound as a routine 2D scan performed in your doctor's office.
Although we try to get the very best images possible, certain things are out of the sonographer's control :
- the stage of pregnancy
- your baby's position
- the mother's body type and build
- and the amount of amniotic fluid surrounding the baby
Your baby is the director of the show! The most frequent type of picture we see shows 1/2 to 2/3 of baby’s face (mostly due to your baby’s position.) For instance, your baby may be facing toward your spine or have one arm on his/her face. Some families do see 100% of their baby’s face while others see more of a profile. Your baby will determine how much of his/her face you get to see. Many of our families schedule multiple sessions, so they can watch their baby grow throughout the pregnancy.
Will my doctor be contacted about the 3d/4d ultrasound?
No. This is an elective procedure & we do not contact your doctor prior to or following the session. We do require all of our clients to be under the care of a healthcare provider. A medical Ultrasound with your provider should have been performed prior to seeking an elective Ultrasound.
