Lethbridge Ultrasound 3D Baby Scan YQL

Appointment Info

Booking the Appointment

We recommend you book your appointment for two to three weeks in advance to reserve a convenient time that works with your schedule.

There is no inappropriate time to come in. Ultrasound imaging, at any stage of pregnancy, offers exciting opportunities. Before the mother-to-be can even feel the unborn child move, she can watch movement during the ultrasound scan. The later stages provide an opportunity to view the soft tissue details of the unborn child. It’s a special treat when the unborn child’s face can be seen while yawning, swallowing, or sucking.

Please refer to our photo gallery for examples of what you can expect at each trimester. Feel free to bring friends and family to your appointment, and if you have other children, we encourage you to get them as well.

Preparing for the Appointment

Please refer to our photo gallery for examples of what you can expect at each trimester. Feel free to bring friends and family to your appointment, and if you have other children, we encourage you to get them as well.

Empty your bladder then drink only one glass of water within the hour before your appointment.
Try not to drink too much during that hour as we really want you to be comfortable and enjoy your ultrasound; and
Feel free to eat normally.

During the Appointment

There is no need to arrive early to your appointment, but please do try to be on time. You will begin by completing a form and watching a short informational video that explains the paperwork and what you will experience during your scan.

Your technician will introduce herself and answer any questions you may have. She will gather some information and escort you into the scan room. In preparation for the scan, “mom” will be draped with a towel, and warm gel will be applied to her tummy.

The video will start before the ultrasound probe touches mom’s skin. We don’t miss a thing on your video!

At Ultrasound Preview, we start by looking at your baby in 2D. Your technician will help you identify different parts of the baby’s anatomy, such as limbs, spine, head, etc. We’ll also measure the baby’s heartbeat and let you listen to the beating of its heart.

At this point, the technician will determine if your baby is lying in the correct position for the 3D machine to obtain a 3D/4D image. When an opportunity for a 3D image presents itself, the technician will switch to the machine’s 3D mode. In about 15 percent of cases, the baby’s position does not allow us to get a 3D/4D image. However, if your baby is lying correctly, we will use the 3D/4D machine to show you your baby. Hopefully, the little one will move so you can experience the 4D difference.

In any case, we will record your scanning session from beginning to end. We will include all of the 2D, 3D, and 4D images taken, the room’s voices, and the baby’s heartbeat on a video. You will receive the video in DVD format and printouts of any photos we have captured.
