About your 3D/4D Scan

You may choose to have you 3D/4D scan any time after 17 weeks into your pregnancy, although ideally you should have it at 24 weeks. This is so because by that time the baby will have developed certain facial characteristics, which you will see in the scan. Also, after 20 weeks, you may also find out the gender of your baby. If however you do not wish to know it, make sure you’ll let the sonographer know.

All scans take place at the clinic being conducted by professional sonographers who will use the latest scanning equipment in an appropriate and warm environment.

What to expect on the day

Our professional team will be there for you and will help you relaxed, by using warm ultrasound gel and try to make you feel as comfortable as possible. As well as high quality pictures of your bay being displayed in the large screen, the scan will also document the baby’s first moves in the womb. If by any chance the baby will be moving, you will be able to see it on the TV screen. This will truly be a magical experience both for you and the father of the baby.

You should know that the gender scan will be in 2D as standards. If however you do not wish to know it, make sure you’ll let the sonographer know. During the scan we will play meditation and relaxation music chosen specifically chosen for Baby Scan Clinic. If you wish to take this music home with you, you should know that it is available for free as part of the Harley Baby Package.

Preparing for your 3D/4D scan

During the week before you scan, try to drink at least two extra glasses of water each day. This will not only keep you well hydrated, but will also ensure the existence of enough amniotic fluid surrounding your baby to help us get a clear scan.

It will not be necessary for your bladder to be full for this scan, so feel free to use the ladies room as often as needed. You should remember that you can eat anything you wish that day but try to avoid heavy meals and caffeine in the hour before the scan. If your scan is very early in the morning, please have breakfast first.

It is often said that chocolate, sweets, fresh orange or even fizzy drinks will determine the baby to move so feel free to bring any of these with you at the appointment, in case the baby will be sleeping. 10 minutes before your scan you should have a walk around to try to wake up the baby.

Do you have male and female sonographers?

Baby Scan Clinic hires the most experienced and qualifies sonographers and does not use discriminations between women and men. If however you require a female sonographer because of religious or other personal reasons please let us know in time.
