3d/4d ultrasound is a non-invasive procedure that does not require injections and is not painful. Extensive studies over 30 years have found that ultrasound have not shown to cause any harm to mother or baby. 3D/4D scanning use exactly the same type and intensity of ultrasound that is used in your conventional 2D scanning at your medical ultrasound appointments. 2D, 3D and 4D Ultrasound all utilize sound waves to look inside the body and the images are transmitted by the sound waves.
Baby Within uses the latest, state of the art technology for 3D/4D and 5D

Baby Within works by appointment only. Appointments are necessary for all clients as we want to give you our undivided time and attention during your visit.

Since this procedure is elective, Alberta healthcare does not cover this procedure. Very rarely, an insurance company will provide coverage for an elective ultrasound but you will still need to make the full payment on appointment day and submit a claim with your insurance company later on.

Since the services we are offering are non diagnostic and non medical in nature and are solely for entertainment and bonding experience with the baby, you do not need a doctor’s referral for this procedure.

Baby Within accepts cash, debit and credit. The full payment is due on appointment day.

Baby Within is a small studio and thus can not accommodate a large amount of people to join you. Especially nowadays with covid19 around we request to limit the people present to immediate family and only family members that reside in 1 household. Contact us if you are expecting to have more than 3 support people with you in session day.

Please notify us you are expecting more than 1 baby when booking an appointment. We will need to book enough time to make sure we get each baby the coverage needed. Please note, you will be charged twice (or more depending on how many babies we are watching).

At Baby Within we make every effort to obtain the best possible images but things like baby’s position, placental location, volume of amniotic fluid, maternal size, and whether there are structures obscuring visibility of areas being imaged (hands/legs over the face) can sometimes prevent us from getting a perfect shot if baby’s face. However, you will still get plenty of other adorable shots!

Baby Within offers non medical, non diagnostic services only. This means that no medical information regarding the baby/pregnancy can be obtained during your appointment with Baby Within. Our services are not a substitute for a medical diagnostic ultrasound examination ordered by your health care provider.

Since our business is meant for entertainment purposes only, Baby Within is legally not permitted to disclose any information regarding baby’s health or well being.

We recommend scheduling your gender determination appointment at or after 16 weeks. Clients requesting gender determination between 14-16 weeks will not be eligible for a free re-scan if we can not confirm baby’s gender at that early stage. We cannot guarantee with 100% assurance the gender of your baby, nor can we be held liable in any way for an incorrect gender determination.

Many mothers like coming in at least  twice (and often more!), early on, 14-25 weeks, when they can see the baby as a whole, and then again at 25-34 weeks to see a more detailed face. Between 28 and 32 weeks, your baby develops more fat and gets a more defined face. After 34 weeks, it becomes more and more difficult to obtain good pictures since the baby is running out of room. However all babies are different and we have been successful in obtaining great images all the way up to 36 weeks.

Baby Within offers baby gender determination sessions on or after the 16th week of pregnancy. If we can not determine baby’s gender during your appointment, we will have you come back for a rescan. There are NO additional charges for a rescan. The rescan must take place within 2 weeks of the initial appointment date and must be during weekday day time slots (Mon-Fri 10 AM-4 PM). The appointment will focus solely on gender termination. Clients may add extra services at an extra cost.
