Please note that it can take some time to obtain an optimal 4D scan movie. Some clinics are offering 10, 15 and 20 minutes for these scans (please check the small print). This is an unrealistic time frame to achieve an adequate 4D scan movie and finalise the DVD. So please ensure that you check the appointment lengths before you book as it is inevitable that majority of patients are likely to have a very disappointing experience. We have to allocate 30 minutes for our 4D scans movies to avoid disappointment for our patients. However, we are aware that patients may want a smaller and cheaper package. Within a 15 minute time frame we are confident that we can provide still 3D scan facial images both on a CD Rom and provide 2 A4 sized pictures. Also within this time we can check the gender of the baby. Baby Scanning has from the outset not been an add on “Extras” company. If we are able and we think it is possible we will try and throw in a few extras for free which will not cause a strain on our service and provide you with the product that you want. You may therefore feel that the following package meets your requirements.

Our company has never taken a booking fee since its inception in 2005 and we always endeavour to provide a high level of service. You should be careful before purchase a voucher. You should not be expected to pay a booking fee for any clinic. If a company thrives on delivering a high level of service they will not ask for any money up front, as there would be no need to.

Our Reasoning Behind Introducing a Discounted Package

We have been on various forums and many patients have expressed concerns about their purchase of vouchers which are too good to be true. The offers are very attractive with £99 3D and 4D scans. Who wouldn’t find these offers irresistible?! The reality is that voucher companies take up to 50% of the price which equates to about £50. The scanning company then has to provide a 45 minute appointment for £49.

Now, you have to ask yourself.

1) Are these companies able to accommodate 200+ customers who have also purchased the vouchers? Many of the complaints on the forums are that their telephone calls are not taken despite repeated attempts and that they have difficulty making appointments despite having already parted with their money. They have expressed difficulties in choosing their appointment times.

2) Can these companies afford to pay qualified staff (Sonographers/Radiographers) who charge £30 to £40 hour?

3) Do they have maintenance and service contracts in place for their ultrasound machines which costs in the region of £7000 to £8000 per year?

4) How can these companies pay their rent/rates and google charges and the above expenses for £49/hour?

It is dangerous for this medical equipment to be operated by unqualified staff and not be serviced and maintained on annual basis.

There are various settings on these machines which have to be monitored and controlled carefully. An example of these are the mechanical and the thermal indices. These have to be kept at low levels to ensure no harm to the foetus. If an unqualified person operates these machines they can potentially be causing harm to the foetus. Collectively with other reputable baby scanning companies we cannot be involved with voucher companies as it is obviously financially impossible to provide the service using qualified staff, at the rates set and commissions taken by the voucher companies.

Our clinic is owned by a General Medical Practitioner, so we have a duty of care to the patient. Our 3D and 4D scans are carried out by qualified sonographers and radiographers. We have maintenance and service contracts in place for our equipment.

Given the above expenses we believe that we can provide the above discounted packages without compromising level of service or compromising patient safety.

In the current climate we understand that patients don’t want to pay more than they have to, so we have discounted our main 4D baby scans package which we feel is very good value for money given the cost of providing medical services.

3D Scans

At Baby Scanning, we are able to offer you the most technologically advanced 3D scanning service currently available. These cutting edge imaging techniques allow you to see your unborn baby in extraordinarily high detail.

4D Scans

Many expecting parents have been amazed by how the foetus moves in ways very similar to a newborn baby. With our 4D scans, you can see the foetus smile, yawn, suck on his or her fingers, scratch his or her nose and exhibit many other behaviours of a newborn baby.

2D ultrasound technology has been used for the past 30 years in Obstetrics as it is regarded as the only safe method of viewing the foetus within the mother´s womb. For our 4D scan, we use state of the art 4D ultrasound technology allowing the parents to see their baby a lot more clearly using the same type and intensity of ultrasound. Visit our 4D Scans page for more information.

Our Guiding Principal:

3D Ultrasound

All 3D ultrasound scans should offer medical benefits and not be solely for aesthetic purposes. Our 3D ultrasound baby scans are primarily intended to enhance parental bonding. Over the past few years there have been

reports in various medical journals that 3D ultrasound baby scans have both psychological and other health benefits.

4D Ultrasound

We believe that following 4D Ultrasound scanning the mother´s care of herself and therefore the care of her baby may improve. She may be more inclined to eat healthier, be more careful in her day-to-day activities and reduce her

alcohol and tobacco intake. Visit our 4D Ultrasound page for more information.
