3D/4D Ultrasound – Early Bonding

3D/4D Ultrasound is an elective procedure which, like 2D Ultrasound, uses soundwaves to “peek” inside mom’s womb.  3D Ultrasound captures still images which may include distinct features and even facial expressions.  4D Ultrasound captures detailed video, so you can actually watch your baby move, see and hear his/her heartbeat, and, in some cases, even watch them suck their thumb.  The best images usually occur between 26-34 weeks.  Some women choose to come several times during this period.  Others have 3D/4D Ultrasound performed every few weeks to document the miracle their entire pregnancy. While most parents bond with their child after only one visit, many choose to return multiple times to deepen their bond even further.

Should I Get a 3D/4D Ultrasound?

Baby on the Way!

One of the most exciting experiences in life is happening to you right now!  Whether this is your first or fifth child, pregnancy is an incredible and beautiful gift.  Years ago, women only had the option of 2D Ultrasound.  This black and white thermal image was impressive at the time, offering a basic photo of baby inside mom’s womb.  Today, technology has advanced to allow us to capture much more detailed images of your baby in utero.  This gives mom, dad, grandparents and even siblings the opportunity to bond with baby well before he/she is born.

A Family Affair!

Our 3D/4D Ultrasound rooms are super comfy and cozy!  Invite family and friends to enjoy this experience with you.  Children are welcome and encouraged to come, too.  It is amazing to watch a child’s face light up when they see their sibling inside mommy’s “belly” for the very first time!

Gender Determination

If you want to know your baby’s gender, our trained sonographer will be happy to share it with you. 3D/4D Ultrasound can generally be used to determine gender as early as 15 weeks. Sometimes gender cannot be immediately determined based on your baby’s position.

Is ultrasound safe?

Yes, Ultrasound has been used safely in obstetrics for over 35 years. In the 35 years of use in medicine, there has never been a harmful effect shown by the use of ultrasound. Many women have multiple ultrasounds during their pregnancy with no negative effect on the baby. Women who are having trouble with pregnancy may have as many as two or three ultrasounds per week late in the third trimester.

Multiple Pregnancy Ultrasounds Safe for Child (www.WebMD.com)

Prenatal Peek® has a business practice of  Licensing the Prenatal Peek® Trademark out to physicians, qualified sonographers or business entrepreneur that agree by contract to only have qualified sonographers perform ultrasound scans. In historical archives more data represents the safeness of ultrasound while being performed by a qualified professional.

The International Society for Ultrasound in Obstetrics and Gynecology (ISUOG), in 2002, stated: “Acoustic outputs are [generally] not high enough to produce deleterious effects. Their use therefore appears to be safe, for all stages of pregnancy.” (Abramowicz, et al. 105)

The American Pregnancy Association, “a national health organization committed to resolving reproduction, pregnancy and sexual health concerns through education, research, advocacy, and community awareness,” states the following: “[The] ultrasound is a non-invasive exam which poses no risks to the mother or developing fetus.” (Americanpregnancy.org)

Presently, ultrasound is as safe as ever, despite the false impression that 3-D/4-D technology poses greater risks than traditional 2-D. While conventional 2-D imaging requires a precise plane with which to observe the unborn baby, new techniques allow practitioners to freely rotate 3-D images of the scanned fetus within a stored volume. (Contemporary OB/GYN 4) Utilizing 3-D technology diminishes net exposure since volumetric images are rendered quickly and adjusted off-line.

Actually, 3-D/4-D “entertainment” scans that are performed by experienced, certified technicians often result in less exposure than those for diagnostic purposes. Volume acquisition, multiple 2-D images converted by computer into a detailed 3-D picture, occurs in seconds. Since the technician can manipulate images off-line (probe not in contact with skin) with no time limitations, “three-dimensional sonography reduces tremendously the time of exposure of [fetus] to the ultrasound beam.” (Kurjak 1)

“Entertainment” scans require higher intensity levels, and subject women and their unborn children to longer exposure time, especially when the technician is poorly trained or using improperly maintained equipment.
