Babybond® 4D scans are the original and most popular in the UK; we've successfully performed hundreds of thousands since 2003. New parents deserve the confidence that their 4D scan is carried out by a qualified person, that's why our simply4D scan includes a Babybond wellbeing check performed by a health care professional. This 4D baby scan is optimized for fast results and includes printed souvenir images and complimentary sexing if you want to know (we'll keep things hidden if you don't). You'll also have the option to buy your images on USB or CD; see simply4D scan media extras below.

Your choice of a free rescan is included if your baby’s position is not favourable on the day for the primary purpose of this scan.

All scans are performed by a qualified Sonographer with diagnostic obstetric scanning experience.

Frequently asked questions

4d scan appointment length
Why choose to have a 15 minute simply4D scan appointment?
As our simply4D option name suggests, this is for clients who simply want pictures of their baby to take home from a short 4D scan, but also feel reassured they are being scanned by a skilled health care professional performing a reliable wellbeing check during the appointment.

Your baby's position, gestational age and maternal BMI are just some of the key factors for obtaining aesthetically pleasing images during your appointment. Compared to our 30 minute 4D bonding scans, this shorter 15 minute 4D scan is only available during the "fast yield" 25 to 28 weeks gestation range. During this stage, your baby's size and position are very likely ideal for aesthetically pleasing 4D imaging in a shorter time, making it an affordable option for new mums and dads wanting "simply 4D"
Are 4D baby scans considered safe?

The HPA published a report in February 2010 and considers that parents-to-be should be aware of "uncertainties regarding ultrasound imaging....." when thinking about 4D scans. You can see the article here.

All of our 4D scans are professional guideline compliant as reported in our news item from January 2013.

What is the difference between diagnostic and non-diagnostic scans?

Any pregnancy scans referred to as "non-diagnostic" should be avoided.

It implies that the (diagnostic) ultrasound equipment is not being used in accordance with manufacturer's guidelines, that the person operating it may not be a health care professional or following their duty of care requirements (i.e. ignoring any incidental findings), may not be professionally insured and are ignoring the fundamental safety guideline set out by the DoH in the UK.

All of our pregnancy scans include a minimum of a well-being check, are carried out by health care professionals who will act upon their duty of care with incidental findings and who can write clinical reports.

Our ultrasound systems are sourced through official channels and are set-up and operated to the manufacturer's guidelines.

What if my scan shows something is wrong or I need help after my appointment?

Very rarely, there may be a problem that is totally unexpected and we are the bearers of bad news.

Never easy to hear, we will ensure you have the time, support and a plan of care arranged. We will continue our course of support for as long as you need us.

If you become concerned about any aspect of your scan, the images and recordings you have taken home or you wish to make a complaint, you can contact the clinic where you had your scan and our staff will discuss any concerns that you may have.
