FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Do I need a note from my doctor?

 

Yes. Little Miracles is an elective 3D/4D ultrasound imaging facility. We require that all mothers bring documentation of their most recent prenatal care. We do not perform medical ultrasounds, however, if we are suspicious of a possible abnormality your health care provider will be notified.

When is the best time for a 3D/4D Ultrasound?

That is completely up to the mom to be but we recommend somewhere between 26 and 32 weeks. 

Can you guarantee that I will get specific images? 

No, unfortunately, we cannot guarantee “perfect” images. There are a lot of factors that go in to getting a great picture like drinking enough water, your amniotic fluid, and the amount of tissue between mom and baby. However, the most important factor is what position baby is at the time of your scan. If we can not get good images of baby you will be invited back in 2 weeks for a re-scan only costing $20.

 

How many people are allowed with me while performing the session?

We have room for about 4-5 comfortably, if you would like to bring more that is okay, just know they will have to stand. We have a big projector board so everyone will be able to see comfortably. However, if you choose a home session you can have as many family and friends as you would like.

 

Does the location of the placenta effect the quality of images I will get?

I have scanned many mothers with all different places of the placentas, the main key is which position the babies face is. I will do my part to try and get baby to move if the placenta is blocking baby’s face. 

WHAT STAGE OR STAGES DO YOU WANT TO CAPTURE?

IMAGE

EXAMPLE

You can see the full body in the shots and a great upgrade from just plain 2D.

GIVE

The baby is smaller and images may not be as vivid because of early stage of development.

TAKE

Images usually are from the mid-section and up so you get some body with the face.

Great happy medium, not too early or too fully developed stages.

The baby is larger with facial features and fat layers showing fuller development.

The baby is big now so all you are going to get is just the face or sections of the body.
