What is an Elective Prenatal Ultrasound?

We offer elective 2D, 3D & 4D prenatal ultrasounds to provide a proactive, positive bonding experience for the mother, father and family members with the unborn baby. Realistic surface images provide a connection between the parents and baby that can be beneficial to the whole family.

Will I Get Good Images?

Many things influence the clarity of images. Gestational age, amount of amniotic fluid, maternal obesity and position of the baby all determine the quality of the images.

Your hydration is the key to clear images. We recommend you increase the amount of water you are drinking daily to 80-100 oz. per day three days prior to your appointment. The more hydrated you are, the clearer your images will be.
