Making Memories

At Your Baby Scan we believe that pregnancy is an amazing and special experience, and that your 4D Bonding Scan shouldn't be any different.

We believe that you and your partner, family and friends should share in a special experience meeting your baby in 3D & 4D and HD, and that it shouldn't cost the earth.

What do we do?

We are a private pregnancy ultrasound scan centre. We offer a range of reassurance scans from as early as 5 weeks, Gender confirmation from 16 weeks and 3D/4D from 21 weeks, with HD scanning as standard for all of our scans.

We pride ourselves on offering a caring and conscientious, comfortable and relaxing experience. You will not be rushed at any stage of your visit, before your scan, during your scan or afterwards. We ensure that you get the full scan time that is included with your package, so that's plenty of time for you to bond with your little one, and take in their amazing development and growth. After your scan, we ensure you have lots of time and privacy to view your images, and select 2 large glossy printstake home with you, whilst providing you with immediate online access to all of your pictures anywhere and anytime via our photo locker, making sharing your special experience with friends and family easy. 

Our pricing is deliberately simple and makes it easy to select your scan. All of our scans include ample scan time, and include 2 large printed pictures, access to all of your pictures online and HD as standard. We don’t hide any extras or gotchas in our pricing, but if you want to purchase a DVD or CD we do still sell these too.  

A wide range of extras are available including gender reveal products such as balloons, cannons and fireworks, as well as keepsake bears containing baby's heartbeat, photo frames and even a small selection of baby wear.

Simple pricing

At Your Baby Scan we try our best to keep everything clear, simple and fair. We don't offer a confusing combinations of packages, but instead let you choose what you want as you want it.

Start your booking with the type of scan that you would like, and if there is anything else that you would like, simply add them you arrive on the day.

Whilst other scan centres may include a plethora of combinations of extras in a takeaway menu of confusing scan packages, we take away the pain by including all of these extras as standard!

Every one of our scans include at no extra charge:

  • 2 large full gloss photo quality coloured prints (more than twice the size of most scan centres, and four times bigger than those offered during most NHS scans)
  • Full access to all of your photos in our secure online photo locker where you can download your images, print more at home, or share them with friends on facebook and twitter.
  • HD iLive (where the scan is in 3D/4D)
  • Complimentary chilled water, tea and coffee for you and your guests on arrival
  • Complimentary soft drinks and sweets to help baby to move if they're in an awkward position

Whilst we do offer a number of different types of scan, but these are largely based on when you are in your pregnancy rather than what you want to include in your scan package.

Scan timeline

Whilst we have an extensive range of extras available, and they're very reasonably priced, you are under no obligation to buy any of these, and you won't find our staff pushing you to buy anything extra. If you do want something, just ask on the day.

Extras

Whilst you're at Your Baby Scan for your scan, you won't find our staff pressuring you into buying any extras, and we think that everything that you would expect to get from your scan is already included as standard including access to all of you images, your scan in HD and some prints to take home. It's all part of the service.

You will only be asked if you would like a DVD or a keepsake bear before your scan as we need to record these during your scan, and this is discreetly kept to a checkbox on your consent form. These are priced as follows:

DVD with a video of your scan only £15

Take home a DVD of everything that you saw on our large screen to view over and over again from the comfort of your own home with friends and family. This great keepsake can be played on your home DVD Player and even includes the sound of your baby's heart beat (if this was listened to during your scan).

Keepsake bear £24.99 

Our keepsake bears are available in pink, blue or brown, or alternatively select from one of our themed bears, including Christmas Elves, Rainbow Unicorns and Peter Rabbit, our selection is regularly updated; each includes a 30 second recording of your baby's heartbeat in an electronic module.

That said, we know our customers love to take home extras to remember their experience and so we do have these available. Simply let us know after your scan and we'll be more than happy to get these for you. A full price list is available in the scan centre:

Extra prints £3 each

For the same price as an NHS thermal print, take home some extra large coloured prints of your little one as a keepsake of your scan, or to give to friends & family. All scans include 2 large prints, however extras can be ordered after your scan, or can be re-ordered later.

All of your images will also be available in our secure online photo locker allowing you to download and print additional prints at home.

Keyrings & Fridge Magnets £3 each

Pregnancy is an exciting time, knowing that your little one is growing an will be born soon. Like parents keeping photos of their children in their wallet to show off proudly, we know that you often want to keep a scan image nearby to show off, or remind you what your little one looks like whilst you wait excitedly for them to arrive. We offer a selection of keyrings and fridge magnets, simply select the image that you would like after your scan and our receptionist will take care of the rest. 

CD-ROM with all images £10 each

All of your images from your scan will be available online to access via our Photo Locker App for iOS, or via our website here within seconds of your scan completing. If, however, you would like a copy of your images on CD-ROM, we would be more than happy to accommodate you.

USB with all images £10 each

All of your images from your scan will be available online to access via our Photo Locker App for iOS, or via our website here within seconds of your scan completing. If, however, you would like a copy of your images on a USB flash drive, we would be more than happy to accommodate you.

 

Is it harmful?

There is currently no evidence to suggest that 4D Bonding Scans are harmful, however, it is important that you have all of the facts about the risks associated with the procedure before coming to your decision on the matter.

In general, it's recommended for good measure to keep your scan times to a minimum, and that this is particularly during the early stages of pregnancy
