Ultimate4D&Growth™ Overview

Our bespoke Ultimate4D&Growth™ ultrasound package provides a truly unbeatable experience for expectant parents. You and up to six guests can watch your unborn baby in 4D HDLive motion on a large HD screen in our spacious clinic environment. Far more than just a wellbeing scan, the Ultimate4D&Growth™ package is a unique bonding experience, giving you the opportunity to see what your baby looks like inside the womb. All of this will be captured in the form of MP4 video and jpeg scan photos supplied on a branded USB stick – you might even see your child waving back at you! This package is enhanced with our bespoke selection of souvenirs, including the First Encounters Heartbeat Bear and photocloud™. Our experienced, fully qualified sonographer will perform growth measurements and weight calculations, establish placenta position and fluid volume, provide an audible heartbeat trace, identify the position of your baby, all of which will be documented on a growthAssure™ Report. We can also provide gender confirmation during the wellbeing scan (but only if you request this).
Please note
If required, we can confirm the sex of your baby as part of your 4D ultrasound package. However, please bear in mind that no scan can 100% guarantee the gender of an unborn baby – our experienced sonographers can only give their professional opinion based on the imagery obtained.

Scan Time & Baby’s Safety
Your Ultimate4D&Growth scan will last for approximately 5 minutes. As an ethical and regulated provider we comply with the British Medical Ultrasound Society (BMUS) guidelines, only scanning for as long as it necessitates to achieve the required diagnostic evaluation. Whilst we appreciate longer scan times promoted by other scan companies may seem appealing, the safety and wellbeing of your baby is paramount and should not be compromised.
Re-scan Guarantee
If, on the day of the 4D ultrasound scan, your baby is in a position that makes quality imaging difficult to achieve, we will recommend that you take a short walk to encourage movement. If this fails to have the desired effect, we will offer you a complimentary re-scan visit on another date. T&Cs apply.
Multiple Pregnancy Surcharge
A multiple pregnancy will require further scan time in order to conduct the detailed assessment required to obtain growth measurements of both babies, achieve gender depiction and to obtain 4D imagery; as such we charge an additional £60 to account for the extended appointment time allocated, and for the double quantity of souvenirs included in the package. It is recommended that this scan is performed between 22-26 weeks gestation for optimum results.
Sonographers & Regulation
All ultrasound scans are performed by qualified and experienced obstetric Sonographers registered with the Health Professions Council (HPC). First Encounters Ultrasound Ltd is registered and regulated by the Care Quality Commission (CQC)
Guest Policy
We have seating for up 6 guests and children are most welcome.
The diagnostic evaluations obtained whilst conducting the Growth&Reassure™ and Growth&Presentation™ scans provide valuable insight into baby’s continual development and wellbeing, designed to compliment but not replace your NHS Dating/NT (12-14wks) and Anomaly scans (20 wks). Whilst each scan type has a specific purpose, gestation age criteria and defined reporting protocols, our qualified Sonographers have an ethical obligation to highlight, report and refer matters of concern which may be outside the scope/protocols of the performed scan. In some circumstances further NHS evaluation and screening may be required; however the gestation age criteria for such evaluations will be determined by your NHS Antenatal provider.
Pre-scan preparation
Arrive with a full bladder as this will assist with magnification of scan imagery. Please do NOT empty bladder prior to scan. Sugar in the blood stream will assist with baby’s movement. Remove any belly piercings in advance of your appointment. We will need to expose your abdomen during the scan, as such please consider wearing a two piece outfit in order that we may respect your dignity.
Optimum Gestation Age
The best 4D imagery is obtained when baby has plenty of room for movement and when there is ample fluid to project imagery; as such we recommend having your 4D scan between 26-29 weeks for optimum results.
