Drinking plenty of water (typically 40- 60oz per day) THROUGHOUT your pregnancy can greatly impact the quality of your images. Also, you can consume a food or drink that you know will make your baby active. If you know of a food, drink or activity that gets your baby moving, by all means feel free to do them just before your travels to our office.

Unfortunately we cannot guarantee “perfect” images, nor can anyone. What you see on our website are images taken directly from our clients and exemplary of what most mothers receive. However, the most important factor is the position of the baby. Other critical factors include the amount of amniotic fluid (drink plenty of water throughout your pregnancy) and the amount of maternal tissue between the probe and the baby. Each mother and baby are unique and so is each session. We truly want to get good images of each baby we see, but sometimes babies are just camera shy.
All customers are required to be under the care of a doctor or midwife. We encourage you speak with your healthcare provider (doctor, midwife, etc.) about your intentions to visit Baby Impressions. Customers are also required to have completed their first diagnostic ultrasound to evaluate for a healthy pregnancy and determine the due date. Upon arriving for your appointment you will need to provide the following information: Healthcare providers address and phone number, due date and date of last diagnostic ultrasound. Ultrasound services provided by Baby Impressions are purely elective and cannot be substituted for a diagnostic or medically indicated ultrasound. We do not take measurements or determine due dates.
We accept Cash, Visa, Master Card, Discover and debit cards. Please note, we do not accept or process insurance claims of any kind.
Our GE Voluson 730 ultrasound system is the same equipment used by many of the world’s finest prenatal clinics and is as safe as the ultrasound machine used at your doctor’s office. Ultrasound technology has been the subject of hundreds of clinical studies over the past 30 years and has not been shown to cause any harm to the mother or baby. We urge you to speak with your doctor about the safety of ultrasound.

Gender determination is done any time after 14 weeks. Heavier set or full figured moms should wait until 16 weeks for gender determination.
We would recommend having the 3D/4D ultrasound performed between the 26th and 34th week of the pregnancy for a single visit. However, excellent images of your baby can be obtained anytime after about 24 weeks of pregnancy. Expectant mothers that are full-figured should consider scheduling their 3D/4D ultrasound between 28 and 32 weeks of pregnancy. If you are expecting twins or multiples, the best time for 3D/4D ultrasound is between 22-27 weeks. See our best time calendar.
