Contact Us Please phone us on if you cannot find an appointment on the website, as there are sometimes appointments available that aren't shown A 4D Baby is a family run CQC registered business that has been established since and has built up a reputation for providing quality scans at a price people can afford.
A 4D Baby not only offers the most competitive prices but also a high standard of service which sees our customers return to us year after year and recommend us to their friends, we were very proud to receive the most family friendly award from The Best Of Ipswich. Family members are welcome to attend the scan to see the new addition to the family. If you use moisturising creams please stop using them for a couple of weeks before the scan as the build up of moisturiser can interfere with the sound waves and cause less clear pictures.
A high BMI will also affect the quality of the pictures as will an anterior placenta, to varying degrees, as again it diminishes the strength of the soundwaves which causes less sharp pictures.
The principles of A 4D Baby are to provide the best possible service to our clients at the lowest price possible which is why we receive so many recommendations from our clients and have so many people return to us again and again.
Over the past 10 years we have become the most recommended baby scanning studio in East Anglia by providing our clients with the best service we can at the best prices. We have the best record on our sexing scans with only 6 wrong in 11 years, whereas one of our competitors has recently got at least 3 wrong in the space of a month! We also have a unique and personal way of letting you know what you are having. At A 4D Baby we appreciate that sometimes things happen on the day of your appointment, for example your car breaks down or one of your children suddenly becomes sick.
All our staff will do their best to get good pictures for you on the day. No matter which scan you choose to have please be prepared to be with us for a while as some babies take over 2 hours before they will move into a good position for pictures, most appointments take about mins.
All our HD and 4D scans include sexing of the baby and four thermal images. No matter which scan you choose you will be afforded the same time and patience in order to get the best results we can. In we won "Most Family Friendly Business of " by The Best Of Ipswich because "It provides a professional baby scanning service in an informal and relaxed atmosphere.
The staff are friendly and helpful and the prices are very reasonable. We are very honest about our accuracy with our sexing scans, we are running at From 15 weeks we have had just one wrong one of the very first at 15 weeks we did very, very occasionally you may need a free re-scan two weeks later just so we can check we are correct, of all the ones we have checked they have all been correct.
In the past 10 years we have also had five wrong over 16 weeks, we are very careful as we don't want to get any wrong but we aren't infallible but 6 wrong since isn't a bad record. We recommend a 4D scan is best weeks and for twins from 23 weeks. Our free re-scans are only available to those 2D scans over 15 weeks who bring their notes and 4D scans over 24 weeks or 23 weeks for twins.
All our Sexing scans you for a half price HD scan later on in the pregnancy, it's our new Platinum Package, please contact us for details or view on our services page. We take the physical and emotional well being of our clients very seriously which is why we strongly advise not to have a 2D scan under 20 weeks at the weekend. This is because if you have not had your 20 week anomaly scan you might not be aware of a problem and it is much harder to contact your medical provider at the weekend if any problems show up during the scan.
Ultrasound technology has been the subject of hundreds of clinical studies over the past 30 years and has not been shown to cause any harm to mother or baby, for your peace of mind please feel free to talk to your midwife or doctor about the safety of ultrasound.
It is not x ray and does not use radiation. Our equipment is fitted with a second electrical isolator for added safety.
