This experience is best achieved between 26-30 weeks, so you need to secure your appointment early so that you don't miss this golden window of opportunity. Optimal time to attend this scan is 28 weeks.
Please note, this is a non-medical scan. We therefore require you have had your 21 week anomaly scan. If you had your scan with another provider, please bring your report with you. Your sonographer is masters qualified and brings years of experience in ultrasound.
30 minutes of 4D scanning time.
A specially branded USB memory stick with recorded live clips and the best still images to upload to Facebook or print for family and friends at your leisure!
A link to Tricefy™ direct to your mobile phone to upload the images for you to store, print or share with family, friends and social media.
Gender determination if requested
Gender determination scan
This is designed for those who require a gender determination or confirmation and have already had their 21-week scan. Please note, we do not offer this service before the 18-20 weeks scan.
We also offer specially printed gift certificates of the above packages that make an ideal gift for any expectant mother!
Does this replace my 20-week anomaly scan?
No, this is a non medical scan. We therefore require you have had your 20 weeks anomaly scan. If you had your scan with another provider, please bring your report with you.
Do I need a doctor’s referral?
You do not need a referral from your doctor. We will simply be showing the baby’s features and expressions and for your enjoyment and we will not be carrying out any medical or diagnostic scans of the baby.
Can you tell the sex of the baby?
Yes, if baby is in the right position and you wish to find out we can let you know!
What is the preparation for my scan?
No special preparation is required for your scan – other than deciding who you would like to attend with you and which package you would like!
Is this scan covered by Medicare?
No, unfortunately there is no Medicare rebate for this procedure. We have EFTPOS facilities and payment can be made on the day. If the sonographer is unhappy with your baby’s position and are unable to obtain satisfactory imaging then we might rebook you for another time at no additional charge to you, depending on how advanced your pregnancy is.
Can I come back again?
Yes, if you wish to have a follow up visit within the 26-30 week window that can happily be arranged for an additional bonding experience with your baby. However, this will incur additional costs.
