While we often place a great deal of emphasis on the unique and moving experience our scans provide for expectant parents, our ultrasound packages are designed to offer a unique insight into your baby’s world for all the family, including children.

If you’ve already started a family, you’ll no doubt want your child to be able to experience the excitement of your pregnancy, allowing them to form a close bond with their little brother or sister before they arrive! Luckily, our ultrasound scans give you the perfect opportunity to share this beautiful bonding memory with your child, either during or following the scan.

Here’s why First Encounters Ultrasound is the perfect choice for expectant parents and their children:
  • Give your child a detailed glimpse of their unborn sibling. Your child will naturally be rather curious about their new sibling, and a 3D/4D scan gives them an incredible opportunity to see their future brother or sister for the first time, in strikingly clear imagery. If you would prefer not to have your child with you when the scan itself takes place, we offer a variety of souvenirs that will allow you to share this important memory with them in the comfort of your own home.

  • Enjoy our comfortable, spacious surroundings. Our scan rooms are able to accommodate up to six guests, which means that there will be more than enough room for you and your child(ren) during the procedure. The spacious size and relaxing atmosphere of our clinics are ideal for small children, who may find themselves becoming bored or impatient in a small, stuffy space.

  • Take home our child-friendly gifts. As well as having a detailed image of your little one to share with your child, you will also have the opportunity to present them with one of our adorable scan gifts! For £20 you can record your baby’s heartbeat onto one of our cute and cuddly Heartbeat Bears, providing a sentimental keepsake and a treasured companion for your child.

  • Find out whether it’s a brother or a sister! Many of our scan packages offer you the opportunity to discover your unborn baby’s gender, which means that your child will also be able to find out whether they are having a little brother or sister. Again, this will give them a unique glimpse into the baby’s world, and will allow them to share in your excitement as you discover the happy news.

In this age of instant uploads and social media sharing, we realise that many of our customers wish to access and share their scan images quickly and efficiently via their mobile devices.


In order to give expectant parents both a physical keepsake and an easy-to-access digital copy of their scan images, we have decided to introduce a brand new Photo2Fone™ service for First Encounters customers. Photo2Fone™ allows you to access the scan images that come with your chosen package directly from your phone via our Photocloud™ service, enabling you to instantly view, download, and share your precious imagery.

You will be able to access your scan images via Photo2Fone™ for up to 7 days after the date of your scan. This service is available with selected scan packages at both our Cardiff and Bristol clinics.

We are very pleased to announce that First Encounters customers will now have access to a brand new scan package: the Classic3D™!

This package will combine the amazing experience of 3D imagery with the benefits of our reAssure™ scan, providing you with fabulous souvenir imagery while also allowing you to track the health, growth, and wellbeing of your little one. During your scan, you will be given the opportunity to discover the sex of your baby; however, this will be your choice, and you can rest assured that we will never spoil the surprise if you'd rather not know!

Classic3D™ scan will allow you to view your unborn baby in stunning 3D imagery; you will also receive a set of high-resolution images to commemorate your experience. This brand new package is available in both our Bristol and Cardiff clinics, which can be found here:
