Getting To Know Your Baby
In the past, expectant parents in the Boston area were not able to see their baby’s facial features or expressions before he or she was born. With today’s 3D/4D/HD technology, parents are able to see their babies yawn, cry and even perform intricate finger movements. Instead of the traditional 2D baby ultrasound scans that most parents are used to seeing at their doctor’s office, these realistic 3 and 4 dimensional scans provide a connection between parents and child that are beneficial for the whole family to enjoy.
3D ultrasound and 4D ultrasound are essentially the same technology with the only difference being 4D adds the dimension of time, thus creating a video scan.
We offer 3D and 4D ultrasound packages that make wonderful keepsakes from you pregnancy. Throughout your life you will enjoy having your 3d ultrasound video and photos.
As many people don’t know where to go to get elective pregnancy ultrasound scans, one of the driving forces behind opening our clinic was to make 3D ultrasound easily accessible in MA. We wanted to offer a convenient, easy to park, welcoming and affordable way to have a truly special experience “meeting” your baby in utero.
Although these scans can be performed as early as 14 weeks, B.B. Precious recommends that scans be taken after week 20 for the best results in seeing your baby. Every mother’s experience in carrying a child is different. Some feel that seeing their baby in 3D / 4D even once is already precious enough. However some mothers wish to monitor their baby’s growth more closely, they may choose to see their baby more than once; having the 1st scan between 21 weeks and 27 weeks and then again between 28 weeks and 34 weeks. During these two periods, your baby’s facial definition will be more developed giving you a more realistic look at how your baby is developing.
