All About 3D Ultrasound

Every future parent wants to know what their unborn child will be like. 2D ultrasound has been used for years to give their unborn child an appearance. Doctors also use this 2D scan to monitor pregnancy to make sure the baby is developing without complications.

The latest scans in use today are 3D and 4D pregnancy ultrasound scans which work as 2D scans. Information about 6-week 3D ultrasound is also available on the Internet. You can also check for the best pregnancy ultrasound through the web.

The only difference is that 3D and 4D ultrasounds provide a three-dimensional image of the unborn child, not a flat one. This 3D scan allows you to see the baby's facial features so clearly that you will never believe that it is an unborn baby and not a live baby.

Relationship with the unborn child

3D and 4D ultrasounds allow a mother to see live video of her baby moving inside and if you are lucky you can also see your baby sucking his thumb and playing with his toes.


The equipment used for 3D and 4D ultrasound is similar to the equipment used for 2D scanning. You should lie down comfortably during the scan. 

Your doctor will then apply a small amount of cold, wet gel to your abdomen. This can be uncomfortable for a while; but as soon as it warms up, the scan starts.

The 3D and 4D ultrasound images are so detailed that once you give birth and see your baby, you've seen your baby somewhere before!
