Can you explain what 3D/4D ultrasound imaging involves?

3D imaging refers to the process of converting a two-dimensional ultrasound image into a three-dimensional representation. The addition of motion or time to a 3D image creates 4D imaging. At MY LITTLE MIRACLE, we offer elective 3D/4D ultrasound imaging of your baby during your pregnancy to provide a memorable bonding experience for you and your loved ones. It is essential to understand that this imaging is not a replacement for the medical diagnostic scans that are necessary throughout your pregnancy.

Is it necessary to have a full bladder before the scan?

No, it is not necessary to have a full bladder for the scan. However, we do advise staying well hydrated throughout the day before your appointment. 

Are ultrasounds considered safe during pregnancy?

Ultrasound technology employs sound waves to capture images, and extensive research has been conducted to assess its safety for both the mother and the baby. These studies have consistently shown no harmful effects associated with ultrasound. Additionally, at MY LITTLE MIRACLE, our skilled sonographers prioritize safety by utilizing their expertise to minimize the amount of sound energy used during the scan while still achieving the desired images.

What does 3D/4D ultrasound imaging entail?

The process of transforming a two-dimensional ultrasound image into a three-dimensional representation is referred to as 3D imaging. When movement or time is added, it becomes 4D. Our aim at MY LITTLE MIRACLE is to offer elective 3D/4D imaging of your baby throughout your pregnancy, providing you and your loved ones with a unique bonding experience. It is important to note that this type of imaging is not a substitute for the medical diagnostic scans that you will undergo throughout your pregnancy.

What happens if the ultrasound images of my baby are unclear?

We take great pride in maintaining high standards at MY LITTLE MIRACLE. Although it is rare, there may be instances where we encounter challenges in obtaining clear images. In such cases, we may recommend taking a brief walk or consuming something to encourage the baby to shift positions. If these efforts are unsuccessful, we will offer you a free complimentary rescan at a time that is convenient for you. Our ultimate goal is to ensure that you have a positive and satisfactory experience with us.
