4D baby scans give you more of a detailed view of your baby moving around in real time, while 3D scan offer lifelike images of your baby. Neither type of scan is harmful for you or your baby. They’re a similar intensity to a 2D ultrasound scan, only they open up a new way to experience and cherish the joy of your baby’s growth and development.

All of our 4D baby scans are performed by professional sonographers who have extensive obstetric scanning experience. We recommend that you pass any notes made during your scan on to your GP/healthcare provider to ensure a healthy pregnancy all round.

What is the purpose of a 4D scan?

Our 4D scans provide real-time videos of your unborn baby, while our 3D scans show you lifelike images. We’ll measure baby’s growth and compare this to the expectations to determine their gestational age. We can also measure the baby’s foetal weight. We’ll also identify the position of the baby and confirm whether you’re having a boy or girl if you like.

4D Scan FAQs

How accurate are the weights determined during 4D scans?

We strive to be as accurate as we can at the Ultrasound Plus clinics. Our foetal weight analysis is an estimate that’s based on a variety of measurements taken during your 4D scan. They should be taken as a guideline for your baby’s weight.

Should I have a 4D scan at 33 weeks +?

We recommend having a 4D ultrasound between 24 & 36 weeks. So, you can have a 4D scan if you’re over 33 weeks. Note: the best pictures are taken between 27 and 32 weeks.

How much should I drink before my appointment?

To obtain the clearest 4D footage of your baby, it’s important that you have plenty of fluids in your system. Double your usual water intake before you visit us for your scan.

Who will perform my 4D ultrasound?

We have a team of specialist Sonographers and Consultants with years of experience who will conduct your 4D scan. Feel free to ask them questions at any time.

Do I need to bring anything to my appointment?

If you have hospital notes from previous appointments, please bring them to your 4D ultrasound scan. This will help our Sonographers decide whether a referral is necessary.

Do I still need to attend my NHS scans if I’ve had a scan with Ultrasound Plus?

Yes, you do. Our private 4D ultrasound scans are designed to complement your NHS scans, not replace them.

What happens if I need to be referred?

If the Sonographer/Consultant conducting your scan determines that you need to be referred for further treatment, you will be responsible for notifying your GP/Healthcare provider.

How many guests/children can accompany me to my 4D scan?

We can accommodate up to 5 guests during your 4D ultrasound scan. Seeing your baby is a special moment that you want to share, so don’t worry. Please let us know if you plan to bring guests or children with you so we can prepare.
