What Is A 3D/4D Scan?
A 3D/4D is carried out between weeks 24 and 32 of pregnancy, optimally between 25 and 29 weeks. For a multiple pregnancy this is best performed between 22-24 weeks as we cannot scan after 25 weeks. This scan is suitable to those who would like an extra look at baby, in addition to their routine hospital scans. This scan is performed in a combination of 2D and 3D/4D ultrasound.
What Is Included The 3D/4D Scan?
- 15 minute appointment
- Confirm and hear baby’s heartbeat
- See baby in 2D and 3D on large flat screen TV.
- You will see the baby in 2D and 4D and receive 15-20 images in 2D and 3D, several short 4D video clips
- One adult guest is welcome to attend the scan with you
- A short 2D visual clip of baby’s heart beating
3D/4D scans are performed externally using a scan probe on the abdomen. Up to 32 weeks these scans are typically performed in order to
- Show the presence of a foetal heartbeat
- Show baby’s position and fluid level
- Provide reassurance and a bonding experience
*3D = Still images, 4D = Motion
Please note that this is not a diagnostic scan and does not replace a scan from your doctor/hospital
Hear From Our Customers
We had our 3D scan here and got some lovely pics of our baby boy! The Sonographer was so lovely and really made the whole appointment so special! It was a lovely calm experience and I would definitely 100% recommend BabyScan Swords.
We went for our 3D/4D scan in Derry and it was amazing. This is my fourth pregnancy and first time to have a scan like this. My 3 kids and hubby all were in awe.The first time we went baby was hiding so we had to go the following week but it was so worth it. The staff are friendly and welcoming and so patient, taking lots of time for you to enjoy watching your little miracle on the big flat screen. We got lots of photos and the DVD recording of the whole scan. I couldn't recommend this wonderful experience enough. Thanks from me and mine
