Baby’s Bungalow – 3D/4D Ultrasounds Buffalo, NY 716-692-3D4D (3343)

The questions listed below are the most frequently asked questions about our Elective Ultimate 3D/4D Ultrasound Experience at Babys Bungalow. Should you have any questions that are not answered below, please call Bridget at (716) 692-3D4D (3343) or email Bridget at info@babysbungalow.org

Do I need an appointment? Yes, appointments are necessary for all of our services.  Call (716) 692-3D4D (3343) to schedule an appointment. We do offer same day appointments as well (if we are not already booked that day).

Who will be performing my 3D/4D Ultrasound? Is she qualified to perform this ultrasound?
The most important thing to remember is to ask who is performing your ultrasound!  At Baby’s Bungalow, we are ADAMANT on ONLY employing Certified & Registered Ultrasonographer’s to perform ALL of our Ultrasound Packages (not just the Gender Determination Package). Baby’s Bungalow does not recommend leaving your 3D/4D Ultrasound Experience in the “hands” of a non-certified, non-registered ultrasonographer or a “faux ultrasonographer” (A “faux-sonographer” is someone who has NO official ultrasound schooling, training or experience in the ultrasound profession).   Ask us! We will gladly show you our Certifications and Registrations that we have worked so hard to achieve!

Are you able to tell the gender/sex of the baby?
Yes, as early as 14 weeks gestation. Sometimes fetal presentation, fetal gestational age and/or maternal body tissue content affect visualization of the fetal gender. However, if we are unable to determine the sex of the baby, we will reschedule a quick peek return visit one week later or at the earliest convenience to the patient and within scheduling guidelines of Babys Bungalow. **We will continue to offer this return visit until we can obtain an optimum view**

What if I dont want to know the gender/sex of the baby? Can I keep it a secret?
Dont worry your secret is SAFE with me! I will however recommend less scanning of the fetal genital region, just in case you have an overzealous friend, in-law, aunt or Hubby who just cant wait and tries to steal a peak.

What is the difference between 3D and 4D ultrasound?
In essence, 4D is 3D in motion. 4D imaging was so named when it became possible to use ultrasound to obtain 3-Dimensional images in motion, as real time live-action videos. The 4th dimension is time.  3D ultrasound uses the same technology as basic 2D ultrasound except that multiple angles are used, rendering a 3D image. 4D rendering occurs many times per second, giving a video effect.

How much does it cost?
Please refer to our Ultrasound Pricing tab for available packages. ** Ultrasound Packages are subject to NYS sales tax at 8% (Niagara County)**
We accept Cash, Visa, MasterCard, Debit Cards and Flexible Spending Account Cards for our Licensed Massage Therapy.

Is Babys Bungalow Ultrasounds covered by Insurance?
No.  Elective ultrasound procedures are currently not covered by health insurance companies.

Does this take the place of an Ultrasound at my doctor’s office?
No.  Babys Bungalow adheres to strict policies that correlate with the AIUM and FDA standards of practice, and it is not appropriate to do a limited elective scan if an early or complete diagnostic scan has not already taken place.

***A woman seeking an elective prenatal 3D 4D ultrasound with Babys Bungalow must already be receiving treatment with a healthcare provider for prenatal care and have already undergone a medical, diagnostic Ultrasound ordered by their provider to confirm their due date, screen for early fetal anomalies, and to look for any other pregnancy related issues. Baby’s Bungalow requires that all clients have documentation of their medical diagnostic ultrasound and/ or first trimester NT/NB Screening results. We DO NOT perform medical ultrasounds. However if we are suspicious of a possible abnormality your doctor will be notified.***

How far along should I be before I have a 4D Ultrasound?
If you plan on having only one 3D/4D Ultrasound examination, we would recommend having the examination performed between the 28th and 32nd week of the pregnancy. We schedule sessions up thru the end of the 36th week.

We can never guarantee the quality or number of images obtained. The ability to produce higher quality 3D images tends to go down past the 36th week due to the fetal head presentation engaging into the lower pelvic canal, the large size of the baby, amniotic fluid volume going down, and other factors, such as the placenta, create a difficult canvas to work with. I will say though, if the conditions are right, the pictures will be spectacular!

Can I bring my family and friends?
YES, absolutely! Please bring whomever you would like to share this wonderful experience with. Babies and children are also always welcome at our facility, after all this is meant to be a family experience. We can comfortably accommodate 8 people on our luxurious leather sofas. More than 8 guests may come with you but this gives you a general idea of the amount of seating in the room. We can work to accommodate others. Our seating is specifically arranged so that everyone in your party will have an excellent view of our large 50″ flat screen TV and the 4D images of the baby.

Will I always get a beautiful picture of my baby?
Usually, however if the baby is persistently facing down (towards your spine), or snuggling into the placenta it may be difficult to see the baby’s face. Amniotic fluid volume (Amount of amniotic fluid surrounding the baby) also greatly affects visualization and quality of the images.
First, we will try repositioning the Mom, ask her to walk around, etc. to see if we can obtain a better position. If we are unable to obtain images during the session, we will schedule a repeat scan on a weekday at the earliest convenience to the patient and within scheduling guidelines of Babys Bungalow to try and obtain an optimal image.
At Babys Bungalow we cannot guarantee that the images will be similar to those you might have seen elsewhere or even look similar to other images produced at our facility. Remember that we are at the babys “mercy”. We will always try to meet your expectations but we cannot guarantee that the baby or the conditions surrounding the baby will allow us. Every baby and every mother-to-be scans differently.  I can say though, that I promise to make every effort to obtain the best possible images of whatever parts of the baby that can be seen!

What can I do to help Babys Bungalow achieve the Ultimate 3D/4D Experience for me?
1. Please make sure you have had an early diagnostic or complete diagnostic ultrasound through the guidance of your healthcare provider before coming to an appointment with Babys Bungalow.

2. Bring a copy of your diagnostic ultrasound picture and/or report from your early or complete diagnostic scan that we will place in your file.

3. Drink plenty of fluids throughout your pregnancy and especially 2 days leading up to your scheduled Ultrasound Session. This allows the baby and Mom-To-Be effectively produce more amniotic fluid, which in turn increases the likelihood of better quality images.

4. Arrive 10-15 minutes before your scheduled session to complete our forms.

How long does the 4D Ultrasound take?
Depending on the session you choose, the 4D Ultrasound session will last between 15 minutes to an hour.  Please allow extra time for you to complete forms and for us to finalize your DVD and print your photos. (What a great time to browse through our boutique)

What kind of Ultrasound equipment do you use to perform the 4D Ultrasounds?  We use the GE Voluson 730 Expert to complete all Ultrasound examinations.  Our equipment has been seen in GE television commercials and many printed articles from around the world. This machine is the best 2D, 3D and 4D Ultrasound machine available.Only the GE equipment generates 3D images with amazing clarity and gives you the same clarity with 4D imagery of your baby in motion.


Is 2D, 3D & 4D ultrasound safe? Are there any risks to my baby or myself?
Routine scanning of all pregnancies is not only the norm in the United States; it is considered the Standard of Care. Studies extending over 30 years have found that ultrasound has NOT been shown to cause any harm to mother or baby.
