A 3D/4D scan is a special type of ultrasound that enables you to see clear, realistic pictures of your baby’s face before he or she is born. You will be able to see detailed 3D ultrasound images that move in real time. We recommend having this scan between 26 and 32 weeks to get the best pictures.
The main reason to have a 3D or 4D scan is simply because you want to see these beautiful, high definition images of your baby in the womb. We can perform a 4D ultrasound any time between 26 and 32 weeks.
A 4D ultrasound will look very different to the routine 2D scans that you have as part of your antenatal care. The term 4D refers to the fact that the images are in 3D but will also move in the fourth dimension of time. You may also hear the term 3D ultrasound used to refer to this type of scan. We perform 4D scans using HD Live technology to provide the clearest high definition pictures.
The 4D ultrasound isn’t performed for medical reasons, but we will still perform some basic checks during the scan. We’ll measure your baby’s growth, check the major organs, and make sure that the placenta, umbilical cord and amniotic fluid all look healthy. We can also tell your baby’s gender during this scan if you don’t already know.
If you would like to have a 3D/4D scan in Cheshire, just book your appointment through our simple online system. All our 4D baby scans are performed using the latest 'HD live' technology by one of our experienced sonographers. You can be sure that you are getting the best possible pictures of your baby in the womb.
We had received possible worrying news from our NHS anomaly scan, without much information provided or confirmation. I am so pleased that we came to The Birth Company for reassurance, as we are now extremely happy that everything is fine. Shahrzad was fantastic and went through the whole anomaly scan thoroughly, explaining everything and looking in detail at each area. Nothing was rushed and she took her time to make sure baby was in the correct position to get the best results. We can’t thank her and Dr Gibb enough for the confidence they have given us. Would highly recommend The Birth Company for all scans.
' Professional and reassuring 'Helen Campbell
The sonographer was ready as soon as I arrived, and she was extremely calming, personable and professional. The scan and blood test where efficient without feeling rushed and all very easy. These appointments can feel uneasy and make you feel anxious but I felt reassured and in professional hands the whole time
I saw Kate throughout my first pregnancy and am now doing so again with my second. She is absolutely amazing, she explains everything really clearly, and has answered all sorts of bizarre questions and worries I have had. On top of being clinically excellent she is also just the loveliest person and always a pleasure to see.Sarah Elliott
We had the harmony test with the Birth Company and had a reassurance scan with sonographer Kirsty McGarry who was absolutely lovely and really put our minds at rest. We had been scared by our NHS dating scan and left feeling like there was something wrong. We explained the situation and was treated very professionally and with good care. Also speedy appointments also as I had phone in the morning and got an appointment by afternoon. So thankful.Ashley and Tom
Really friendly, efficient service. Great experience overall. Had the Panorama. My appointment was with Kate who was absolutely fantastic. The results came really quickly. Have a comparison with private healthcare elsewhere and must say that The Birth Company was just how I would like to be treated when I pay for medical services - attentively, calmly, friendly, in a pleasant environment that doesn't look like hospital. Top marks!Anna

The Birth Company has been excellent, providing timely scans and blood tests during my IVF treatment abroad. Staff are always friendly and extremely efficient. I would highly recommend coming here.
' Professional and friendly 'Lyndsey Dilla
When I first contacted the Birth Company I spoke to Danielle. She was fantastic. She went above & beyond to put me at easy & make the journey from Kent as stress free as possible. Every staff member that myself and my husband have come into contact with have been approachable, professional and friendly. Kate scanned me the first time and put me completely at easy. Lisa on reception is professional and very approachable. Highly recommended
' Highly recommended 'Emelie
Donald was so lovely! I was so nervous as I have a bad history and he was super quick and confirmed my baby's heartbeat as quickly as he could. He spent time showing me the baby and the anatomy and it was the best money I have ever spent! The reception girls were lovely too - considering they deal with babies day in day out they were super excited for me! Thank you so much one and all! If only I lived in London and could have all my scans with you!
