Is this ultrasound the same as a diagnostic sonogram?
No. This elective ultrasound should never be used in place of a complete diagnostic ultrasound. Women seeking an ultrasound with Precious Previews must already be receiving prenatal care from a physician, midwife or other healthcare provider and have already undergone a diagnostic sonogram.
When is the ideal time to have a 3D/4D ultrasound performed?
The “best time” depends on several factors, including gestational age, positions of the baby and placenta, and amniotic fluid level. Ultrasound images can be obtained throughout your pregnancy, however, if your goal is to obtain the most vivid facial images possible, we recommend having your 3D/4D ultrasound performed after 30 weeks. Fuller- figured women are encouraged to wait until at least 32 weeks. Women with multiple gestations (twins) should come in around 25-26 weeks.
What if the baby is not in an ideal position?
We recognize that expectant parents want the best images of their baby and we do too! We will do everything to ensure this. If we are unable to capture images of your little one, we will always invite you back at no additional charge.
Can I bring guests?
Currently, only the significant other is permitted to attend the ultrasound appointment with the expectant mother. At this time unfortunately, no children are allowed.
Does insurance cover the 3D/4D ultrasound?
Unfortunately, we are not aware of any health insurance which covers the costs of elective 3d/4d ultrasounds, although some employer-funded Flex Spending Accounts will consider reimbursement.
What forms of payment do you accept?
We accept cash, Visa, MasterCard, and debit cards. We do not accept checks.
Are appointments necessary?
Yes, but we do our best to accommodate same day requests, so don’t hesitate to ask. Our hours are Monday & Wednesday 10-7, Tuesday 8-5, and Friday and Saturday from 8-2. We are closed every Thursday and Sunday.
