Our 4D Scan in Ipswich is available to women of 16 years of age and over and is our most popular scan of choice for parents to be. We have successfully performed hundreds of thousands of 4D Scans since we started our company 20 years ago.
The 4D Scan is designed to not only offer reassurance during the long wait between the 20-week scan and birth, but to allow you to see your baby in 4D.
Although the primary purpose of a 4D Scan must always be a diagnostic one, to check your baby’s health, wellbeing and growth, it’s also possible to see facial characteristics quite clearly and their expressions, including smiling and frowning. You may also see them sucking their thumb or playing with their umbilical cord – it’s an amazing sneak preview of what your baby will be like when they are finally born. This is the next best thing to meeting your baby in person.

*Sexing of your baby
Your baby’s sex organs may also be visible too, so you can if you wish, find out the sex of your baby. However, if you ask for the sex of your baby not to be revealed, the sonographer will keep quiet so your secret is kept safe.
**Our mini clips
These are short clips of your baby which we collect during your scan. We endeavour to provide you with a varied number of recordings on the day where achievable. The number and length of the clips are determined by the position your baby is in during your scan appointment.
*** Our rescan policy
The quality of your 4D Scan in Ipswich is important to us and is dependent on your baby's position. Whilst obtaining the best results on the day, we may stop scanning and ask you to take a short gentle walk in the local area.
If, in our healthcare professional’s opinion, we’re not able to complete the primary purpose of your scan because your baby's position is still not favourable, we may offer you the option of a free rescan appointment. If this is not possible due to your gestation, other options will be discussed with you.
Appointment times and actual scanning time
As a professional organisation we carefully operate following the As Low as Reasonably Achievable (ALARA) principle as recommend by the British Medical Ultrasound Society (BMUS) and the World Health Organisation (WHO). This ensures that we use the minimum ultrasound scanning exposure time and system settings to fulfil the primary purpose of the 4D Scan.
We like you to feel as comfortable as possible during your 4D Scan in Ipswich. We recommend that you wear a two-piece garment to enable the Sonographer to get to your tummy. Though a full bladder is not required for this scan, we would like you to arrive for your appointment with some fluid in your bladder.
