Do you accept insurance?

Will my Doctor be notified of my Ultrasound?

We do not contact your doctor prior to the scan since this is an elective procedure. We do require however that you currently are under prenatal care and if you have any concerns, you should ask your doctor. Ultrasound technicians in general cannot make a diagnosis.

Does this take the place of an ultrasound performed at my doctor’s office?

ABSOLUTELY NOT! Women seeking an elective prenatal ultrasound with Bitsy & Me Ultrasound must already be receiving treatment with a healthcare provider for prenatal care and may only rely on a diagnostic ultrasound ordered by their provider to confirm their due date, screen for fetal anomalies, and to look for any other pregnancy related issues. Please note, at no time is this exam to be used in place of a complete diagnostic ultrasound.

How is this different from an ultrasound performed at my doctor’s office?

Many women have a diagnostic ultrasound performed at 18-20 weeks. In some cases, your doctor or sonographer may even take some pictures and videos of your baby in 3D/4D but this is a VERY different experience than an elective ultrasound at Bitsy & Me. A diagnostic ultrasound is focused on looking for abnormalities and performing diagnostic measurements. While it is necessary to assess the health and growth of your baby, we provide a totally different experience with an ambiance that you will never get at your doctor’s office. We provide a relaxed home-like atmosphere and the interactive bonding between baby and family sets us miles apart from anyone else.

Is this safe? Are there any risks to me, or my baby?

3D and 4D ultrasound use the same frequency as your doctor uses in the normal 2D ultrasound. Ultrasounds have been used for over 35 years and there have been no proven side effects from its proper use. We strictly adhere to the FDA’s standards.

How can I be sure to get the best 3D/HD Live images of my baby and is there anything I can do prior to my appointment?

Most doctors recommend maintaining a healthy fluid intake, especially while you are pregnant. This will help to ensure your amniotic fluid is clear as well as full. There are many things out of the sonographer’s control like the baby’s position, the mother’s skin type and build, amount of amniotic fluid, etc. Drink plenty of water even several days before your appointment to ensure your amniotic fluid is clear. About a half hour before your 3D/4D ultrasound scan, try to drink cold water or a fruit juice so that your baby will be awake during your session (unless you are told not to by your physician).
