FAQs

Yes. The 4D scanning process employs the same ultrasound technology used in normal 2D pregnancy scanning. The difference is that powerful computing within the ultrasound machine enables the image of your baby to be viewed in three dimensions. Therefore 4D scanning is just as safe as the 2D process by which millions of babies have been scanned over the past 30 years. Miracle Inside practice the A.L.A.R.A principle, which stands for As Low As Reasonably Achievable, meaning that the ultrasound settings are very low, but it is still possible to achieve incredible images. In addition, Miracle Inside follow the scanner settings recommended by BMUS, British Medical Ultrasound Society. We recommend that you follow the link to help you to make an informed decision.
All Miracle Insides Scan are a non-medical ,non-diagnostic or screening scan. We do not provide anomaly reports and all mothers should attend their routine hospital scan(s). However, if a problem is detected by one of our sonographers, they do have a duty of care to discuss these findings with you in a sensitive manner. If necessary, and with your permission, they may contact you caregiver so that a medical follow up can be made through them.
Twins tend to have less space around them so we usually advise having a 3D/4D baby scan slightly earlier than usual, at around 22 weeks – 25 weeks.
We understand that you may be running a couple of minutes late, however anyone that arrives later than 10 mins for their appointment may not be able to be seen by our sonographer and you may have to rebook your appointment. There may also be a 50% charge as this will be classed as a missed appointment. (This is at the managements discretion). This is to make it fair on people who have appointments booked in for the rest of the day, in order to ensure that their appointments run on time.

Unfortunately no, not always. Every baby scans differently, depending on its gestational age, position, amount of fluid, and mother’s condition. If the baby is persistently looking down towards your spine or is lying up against the placenta wall it may be difficult to see the baby’s face. Occasionally, the baby may lie in a difficult position or there may not be a pocket of fluid in the correct place to outline the areas of interest of your baby. When this happens a satisfactory scan may not be achievable. In these cases we will send Mum off for a walk or give her a drink and this may cause the baby to move to a more favorable position. Should this not occur then we would reschedule the scan for another day at no extra charge. We make no promises that the images will be similar to those you might have seen elsewhere, or that we can always meet everyone’s expectations. We promise to make every effort to obtain the best possible images of whatever parts of the baby that can be seen.
No ! Any mum-to-be wishing to undergo a private scan are not intended to replace the routine dating and anomaly scans offered by the NHS. Not Under any circumstances do we recommend getting a private scan instead of a standard hospital scan; instead, scan that we offer are intended for extra reassurnace & complement the crucial medical & diagnostic ultrasound NHS scans, allowing them to monitor the vital signs , screen for fetal anomalies, and to look for any other pregnancy related issues across a longer period and enhancing the pregnancy experience for you and those closest to you.
A 4D ultrasound represents the difference between still photography (3D) and video. Through this revolutionary technology your baby’s 3D image is continuously updated providing you with live action. In reality this means that, for the first time, you can watch your baby smiling, sucking its thumb, yawning and stretching as it happens and in color.
Gender determination can be made anytime after the 15wks & 2 days . However, due to the position of the umbilical cord, placenta or fetus, it can sometimes be difficult to get a clear view of the genital area. If this happens we will send you for a walk to move the baby so we can see clearly. If we still can’t see we will bring you back and re-scan you at the next available day for free . All early gender determination scans (before 20 weeks) carry a small margin for error and we suggest that you confirm our determination with your sonographer at your 20 week scan. Should they tell you anything different call us straight away and we will schedule you in for a re-scan on our next available day free of charge.
That is no problem and we do that all the time with NO mistakes. We have large screens in the room for viewing. When people don’t want gender, the sonographer will start with the scan with the screens off then map out the position of the baby. Once that is done, the screens are turned on and you get to see your bundle of joy and gender will not be shown.
You are able to amend your reservation so long as you give us at least 72 hrs notice before the appointment time. The first amendment is free, and further changes are charged at £10.
