When can I learn the gender of my baby?
We start Gender scans and reveals at 13 weeks.
What can I expect during my appointment?
The sonographer will arrive at the location 10-15 min ahead of the appointment to set up. Everything needs to be ready for the session to begin on-time at the scheduled appointment. After the ultrasound is over the sonographer will take on average another 10 mins to pack-up and leave.
When do I get the photos/videos of my baby?
The sonographer will save the images on a flash-drive and leave it with mom before leaving.
Does ultrasound use radiation and can it harm my baby?
No. Ultrasound does not use any radiation. A fetal ultrasound is a safe imaging technique that uses sound waves to produce images of a fetus in the uterus.
Do I need to drink water prior to my exam?
For ultrasounds 10-14 weeks please drink 16 oz of water 30 min before appointment. For 15 - 39 weeks drinking water is not necessary, but please do not empty 15 min before the ultrasound.
Do I need to eat prior to my exam?
Eating a piece of fruit or small meal helps give the baby energy prior to the ultrasound. We want baby awake for the exam, this allows us to get the highest quality of images for you.
Why do I have to sign a Release-of-Liability?
We have our clients sign a release-of-liability because we are performing a non-diagnostic ultrasound for entertainment-purpose only. We require all clients to sign our release to acknowledge this is not a medical exam.
Can this ultrasound replace my 20 week appointment?
No. This ultrasound does not replace your 20-week survey. This is a non-diagnostic exam and is not meant to replace a medical exam.
Why do you want my doctor's information?
If anything unexpected is seen during the exam, the sonographer will notify your physician directly immediately following the exam.
Can I record or take photos of the exam?
Yes! You are welcome to used your personal recording devices during the exam; however, please be respectful of our sonographer's space, while they attend to the expecting mother.
