What is an ultrasound?
What is the difference between a 2D, 3D & 4D Ultrasound?
2D ultrasound is the traditional method used for years. They provide flatter, two-dimensional, black and white images of your baby. 3D ultrasound is an advanced method which captures a true, three-dimensional image of your baby, often allowing the ability to see specific facial features and well-defined formation. 4D ultrasound is an actual moving three-dimensional image of your baby in utero. Actions such as yawning, turning and even subtle movements can be seen.
How many weeks along do you recommend a 3D or 4D Ultrsound?
May I invite my family and friends?
Yes! We have seating and television screens for eight people comfortably, in addition to Mommy!
Are there risks with ultrasounds?
Do I need to tell my OBGYN, midwife, or clinic?
What if we cannot get good images?
At La Bella Belly your satisfaction is our number one priority. We do our best, for every client, to obtain the very best images possible. However, there are some factors, outside of our control, that affect image quality. This includes the position of the baby, tissue density, position of the placenta, and amniotic fluid levels. While some of these factors change often, others stay the same throughout your pregnancy and obtaining images maybe difficult in some circumstances. Because there is no way of knowing what kind of pictures we will get before your session, we have two different options regarding Re-do sessions.
Option 1: We will reschedule your appointment for an additional $15.
You will need to pay for the full amount of the ultrasound for that day.
We will reschedule your session as many times as necessary to obtain at least one picture of the baby’s face during weekdays (not on Saturday).
The first rescheduled appointment must be done within one week.
Because of factors outside of our control, we cannot guarantee how many pictures we will ultimately get, or the quality of the pictures.
Our Sonographers will use appropriate approved procedures to try and get the baby to move.
Option 2 will not be available at Re-do visits.
Option 2: Pay only the session fee.
You will pay a $55.00 Session Fee for 2D ultrasound or $75.00 for 3D/4D ultrasound today. It covers the limited diagnostic services and the appointment time that was scheduled for you.
We will not reschedule your appointment and will not provide any images.
If you decided that you would like to try again, purchase a new package at any time.
Can I share the images/video digitally?
Yes! You have a few options. The best is to add the streaming package:
What will my session be like?
After introductions, we will complete the client intake process. Generally, this requires 15 minutes and you are not charged for this time. We want to know if you have any medical conditions to consider and for you to be comfortable with the entire massage process.
What should I wear?
You can wear whatever is comfortable. We are trained to preserve your modesty throughout your massage. You may be completely undressed under the massage covers.
May I choose the music?
Of course! We strive to have a variety of musical styles or can even turn the music completely off!
Will you massage my scalp?
Most massages will include the base of the scull, the neck, and the scalp; however, we discuss focus areas prior to each massage to meet your specific expectations. This question is usually asked by those who either do not want their hair "messed up" or by those who do want a head massage (it feels awesome!); therefore, let us know what camp you are in prior to your massage.
