Ultrasound preparation for 3D/4D/HD scans:
To come prepared for the scan, we suggest drinking plenty of water before the appointment. If possible, drinking 6-8 cups of water a day at least 1 - 2 weeks before your appointment. Keeping yourself well hydrated is good for you and your baby it can also improve the amniotic fluid level around your baby. This means that if there is more fluid (space) around your baby the clearer the images will be. No fasting is required, in fact, eating plenty of food such as fruit or sweet can make your baby a little more active and this can help baby move into more favourable position.
Your baby is unique:
Every women and their baby is unique, some bubs love their hands, feet or snuggling into the wall. Others are shy and some love to pose.
Always prepare your mindset for realistic expectations. We can only capture what your baby wants to show us on the day. Try not to compare your baby with other parent’s images but to cherish the uniqueness about your baby
Please keep in mind and prepare for any setbacks as we cannot guarantee perfect images every time. There are many factors that can limit the views of the baby's face; such as amniotic fluid, placental position and mother's body type. However, we will always endeavour to get the best images possible.
Medical ultrasound scans:
Please ensure that all referrals contains all the correct details and are legible (such as doctor's name, provider number, your details and service request).
We accept all referrals, as long as they have all the details as mentioned above. Referral must be submitted at least 2 days before the appointment.
