Hi Donna and Liz,

Just to let you know that we now have a very lovely daughter, Caitlin Lily born 13th March weighing in at 7lb 1 oz.

We would just like to say a very big thank you to both yourselves and Anthony for everything you did for us during the scans. Even if the weather was against us, you were always welcoming and did everything you could to get us the best pictures of our little one!

Please find attached two photos. The first taken very shortly after the birth, the second, taken a few weeks later. She is the spitting image of the 4D scan, thank you!!

Pregnancy Ultrasound

Ultrasound scans use sound waves to build up a picture of the inside of the body. The ultrasound scanner has a microphone which gives off sound waves which are then reflected back and converted into an image by the ultrasound machine.

genderscanpicWith a 2D ultrasound, the Sonographer can view different layers of the baby, from the outer extremities to the internal organs. A 3D or 4D ultrasound scan differs where only the outside of the baby can be seen; it forms a topographical image of the baby so that the contours of the face and limbs can be more defined.

Is Ultrasound safe for my baby?

Yes. After years of careful research, no side effects from medical ultrasound have ever been found. As fully qualified sonographers we work to an agreed protocol suggested by the professional governing bodies. We are confident that we offer a safe and professional service to our customers. Will you tell me if you see any abnormality?

Our Private scans are not medical or diagnostic and they are meant to be for reassurance and bonding purposes. If however as medically trained Sonographers if we were to see any adverse features we would of course report on them to your chosen NHS hospital.
