What is a 3D/4D ultrasound scan?

A 3D/4D ultrasound scan produces life like images so that you can actually see what your baby looks like, unlike the standard 2D black and white ultrasound scan which you may have seen at the hospital. With a 3D/4D scan you can see your babies skin rather than the structures underneath. The best time to have a 3D/4D scan is 26-30 weeks pregnant. Before this your baby has little fat underneath its skin so its face will look more like a skeleton. If you schedule your 3D/4D scan your babies head may have dropped too low in the pelvis squashing and distorting the features. During the optimum 3D/4D scanning weeks beautiful lifelike images and video can be captured, creating memorise that will be treasured forever!!
