What type of machine do you use for 2D/3D/4D/HD ultrasounds?
Will Pregnancy Treasures & Boutique contact my doctor about my 2d/3d/4d/HD ultrsound?
Your keepsake ultrasound is an elective (non-diagnostic) keepsake scan, therefore it is not required to contact your doctor before or after the scan. We require that you are currently under the care of a physician and if you have questions or concerns, it is your responsibility to contact your doctor. Ultrasound technicians, in general, are not permitted to make diagnosis, regardless of the setting. We may, however, contact your doctor if we see something of concern during your scan, but remember we are not looking for anything diagnostic.
Will you be able to see if anything is wrong with my baby?
Absolutely Not! We do not look for anything diagnostic; as this is an elective keepsake educational ultrasound. We have an American Registered Diagnostic Medical Sonographer (ARDMS) trained in Ob/Gyn & Abdomen. However, Sonographers are not permitted to diagnosis according to Florida practice acts. Therefore, no, we will not be able to determine if anything is wrong with your baby. We will not perform a medical diagnostic scan nor an evaluation during your voluntarily requested 2D/3D/4D/HD ultrasound. This service is purely for family bonding and enjoyment. This ultrasound will not take the place of your medical ultrasound performed by your ob/gyn physician. Pregnancy Treasures & Boutique requires you to be under the care of a physician for your prenatal health. It is highly recommended to read our “terms & conditions”
Will my pictures be great like the ones you see on the internet?
The pictures on our site have been taken by our ultrasound technicians using our equipment. Although we cannot guarantee your images will be like the ones on our website, our Facebook, our social media sites, our Visit our YouTube Channell we strive to get you the best possible image. Several factors determine the quality of the ultrasound photos: -Maternal body tissue While the DC 8 Mindray ultrasound machine does allow us to make adjustments, maternal size may be a factor. Therefore, we make the following recommendations: Small framed clients, 5’2″ and under: We want your little one to have room to move so we suggest 25-30 weeks for 3D/4D imaging. Fuller figured clients: If the mother is full figured, the sound waves have more tissue to travel through which causes grainier photos therefore 30-34 weeks is best 3D/4D imaging. -Amount of amniotic fluid is critical as Sound waves require fluid to travel through to create the images. The more amniotic fluid you have, the more clear your photos will be. So we recommend you drink the recommended 6 to 8 glasses of water a day for at least 5 days prior to your keepsake elective ultrasound. Another factor is the location of placenta. The location of the placenta is one factor that we cannot change. The placenta can be in front of the uterus, to the back or the side. If the placenta is in the front, it can block the baby’s face. -Position of baby If the baby is facing your spine, we will probably only be able to get pictures of the back of the head or possibly a profile. Our technicians will try to reposition you as an attempt to get the baby to move. Having more amniotic fluid will be helpful if this is the case. If you have any questions as to what time may be best for your appointment don’t hesitate to call. We’re happy to answer any questions you have.
Will insurance cover my 3D4D scan?
No. Because 3D ultrasounds provided by Pregnancy Treasures & Boutique are not medical procedures and are not medically necessary, medical insurance does not pay for this service. We accept all major credit cards, debit cards, and cash.
What stage of development is the best for having a 3D/4D session?
Great question and every mother has her own opinion. We encourage you to check out the 3d4d calendar for guidelines and recommendations. There is always “give and take” at each stage of development, but they are all beautiful. That’s why many families come more than once.

When is the best time for a 3D4D ultrasound?
Check out our 3d4d calendar to help you decide, it will give you all the info you need.
In our experience, the ideal time to get the best images on 3D ultrasound is between 23 and 34 weeks. We have obtained great photos at 39 and 40 weeks but this is not recommended as the larger the baby obtaining good photos is unpredictable. Typically, but not always, after 33 or 34 weeks viewing can be unpredictable. Please note that sometimes after 32 weeks, the baby may have already begun his or her descent to the outside world, and in that case, images may not be obtainable at all. Please check out our Visit our YouTube Channel “Pregnancy Treasures & Boutique” to view our 3d4d paparazzi video. We think it is adorable.
Does the position of my placenta matter as to how clear the 2d/3d/4d/HD photos may be?
If you have a posterior placenta, your placenta is on the back side of the womb and in back of your baby and typically does not interfere with the photos but this is not always the case. We are only concerned about the placenta position for keepsake photos and we are not evaluating nor implying that the placenta position is positive nor negative. We are not saying that Neither an anterior nor posterior placenta does not have any health implications, but typically it does not, so it is not frequently something your healthcare provider will tell you unless you specifically ask. As always, ask your medical provider with any concerns.
How accurate is Pregnancy Treasures & Boutique at determining gender?
Our DNA GENDER DETERMINATION is 99.6% accurate. If you are at least 9 weeks into pregnancy, we will draw a small sample of blood from your arm and off to the baby gender lab it goes. We can tell you the gender as early as next day, in most cases. CLICK HERE for more info about DNA GENDER DETERMINATION. and CLICK HERE to BOOK a DNA APPOINTMENT
