Frequently Asked Questions

Please contact us if you have any other questions that are not listed here.

What is the difference between 2D, 3D, 4D and HD?

2D ultrasound is the black and white photos of the baby that you are used to seeing on the ultrasound machine in your doctor's office.


3D ultrasounds are sepia toned 3-dimensional renderings of baby in a still image. This gives a more realistic idea of what baby looks like.


4D ultrasound is the 3D image seen in real time. You will get the very realistic 3D view of baby, all while seeing the movements baby makes. This is how we capture smiles, yawns, thumb sucking and more!


HD imaging is a high-definition view of baby including all of the above, with a clearer, more realistic view.

How does it work?

Ultrasound imaging, also called ultrasound scanning or sonography, involves the use of a small transducer and ultrasound gel that gets placed directly on the skin. Sound waves are transmitted from the transducer, through the gel, and into the body. The transducer collects the sound waves that bounced back and a computer then uses those sound waves to generate an image

Is it safe?

Ultrasound does not use ionizing radiation, so there is no radiation exposure to the patient or baby. Over 30 years of extensive studies have proven that ultrasound does not cause any harm to the mother or baby.

Does this take place of my ultrasound at my OB/GYN office?

Absolutely not. 3D imaging is a non-diagnostic elective. Our HD technology will capture images of your baby that are unbelievably detailed, however, this exam is not to be in place of a complete diagnostic ultrasound. We recommend that all our soon to be moms be under the care of an OB/GYN. Our services are meant to be a bonding experience between the mother and their baby.

How far along should I be for a 3D ultrasound?

We are able to do 2D scanning as early as 6 weeks! For 3D imaging we recommend weeks 24-32 for optimal imaging. 

Are you able to tell the sex of the baby?

Yes, in most cases, as early as 14 weeks, we can provide an indication of the sex of the baby. However, we can’t guarantee that the baby will cooperate during your session. Certain factors such as body tissue content, developmental stage and fetal position all affect the ability to determine sex.

Will I always get a perfect image of my baby?

Usually, but not always. Sometimes if the baby is looking face down or sleeping during the ultrasound it may be difficult to see the baby’s face. We make no guarantee that the images will be similar to those you might have seen elsewhere or even from us. Every baby scans differently, depending on its gestational age, position, amount of fluid, and mother’s condition. Our team will always make every effort to obtain the best possible images.

Is 3D ultrasound covered by insurance?

No. Since 3D is an elective service and is not intended to be a replacement for your doctor ordered ultrasound, insurance does not cover any of the cost. We accept cash, Visa, MasterCard, AMEX and debit cards.

What should I do to prepare for my appointment?

Hydration is key! Be sure to drink plenty of fluids and eat 30 minutes prior to your appointment. The best results are obtained when the baby is most active.

Where are you located?

We are located right next to Solara Boutique & Tanning. Our address is 3460 Wetumpka Hwy Montgomery AL 36110

Can I bring my family and friends?

Yes, of course! The more the merrier! This is a beautiful experience we hope you will share with your loved ones. Children are welcome also!

What is the refund policy?

We do not have a refund policy, as we will always do our very best in the time allotted to get you wonderful images and memories. We do have a re-scan policy. If baby had a shy day and did not allow us to get images in the time allowed, we will set you up for one complimentary re-scan.
