How long are your ultrasound sessions?
We do not know how long it will take to get your baby in a good position for the best images, therefore we do not quote session times. However, you can plan on being at our facility for an average of 45 minutes for most packages.
What happens if you are not able to obtain images of my baby?
We will do our very best to obtain great images of your baby. There are a few things that affect image quality like fetal position, cord location, and placental location. If we are not able to obtain images, we will have you walk around to see if that helps get the baby is a better position. If that does not work we do not charge you for the session and you are welcome to schedule another appointment.
Can I bring friends or family with me to my appointment?
The decision is yours to make. You may want a small quiet experience or you may want to invite family and friends to celebrate with you. We can accommodate 30 people comfortably. We have a 60 inch large screen TV and two additional monitors for everyone to enjoy the experience. Please feel free to bring children with you. This is a great way for them to bond with their little brother or sister.
Is ultrasound safe?
Extensive studies have been performed over the last 30 years to determine if ultrasound is safe. None of these studies have found any harmful effects to mother or baby. Ultrasounds are routinely performed as part of prenatal care. 3D/4D ultrasounds are the same type and intensity as traditional 2d ultrasound.
Does insurance cover the ultrasounds that you perform at your studio?
Insurance does not cover the elective ultrasounds that we perform at our studio. We accept cash, Visa, American Express, Discover, and Mastercard as forms of payment.

When is the best time to schedule my appointment?
Gender determination ultrasounds can be scheduled any time after 14 weeks with an accuracy rate of 99%. 4d ultrasounds can be performed anytime in your pregnancy after 12 weeks. We obtain the best images between 27 and 32 weeks. This is the time when the baby’s facial features are well defined and there is still enough room around the baby to obtain clear images. After 32 weeks we are usually still able to obtain great images if your baby is in a good position. If we are unable to obtain images we do not charge you for the session.
