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.

Baby Within is a licensed, insured and registered business. 
Having a home business means that we have the ability to offer you a level of comfort and personalized treatment you will not get from a large business. 
As a small business we support other local small businesses. 
This is not a hobby or an extra income, or something we do on weekends. This is our full time job, the way we provide for our family. 

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 equipped with state of the art, hospital grade, FDA approved GE ultrasound machine on which we perform your scan. By seeing our gallery you can see for yourself we offer the BEST quality imaging in Calgary. 
Unlike other businesses offering similar services, we offer the newest technology available. The HD (5D) Ultrasound which provides the BEST view of your baby. 

Absolutely! You can share your special experience with your family members! Just let us know who will be joining you when booking your appointment. 

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 NOT be charged twice (or more depending on how many babies we are watching). For 3D/4D/5D appointments we recommend booking the Regular package if you are expecting twins or more to make sure we get enough time to check in on all babies.

At Baby Within we make every effort and it is a priority for us to obtain the best possible images for you. However, 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 of 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 13-15 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 40 weeks! 
Keep your water volume intake high throughout the pregnancy and especially after 30 weeks and the chances of seeing baby’s face after 35 weeks are quite good.

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 FREE  rescan. There are NO additional charges for a rescan. The rescan must take place within 2 weeks of the initial appointment date. The appointment will focus solely on gender determination. Clients may add extra services at an extra cost.
