Will my baby look like those advertised and present in the media?

There are many factors which influence the picture but the most important factor is for the mum to be well hydrated. Other factors include baby’s position (breech or face down), placental position, structures in front of the face such as umbilical cord, hands or feet, how many weeks pregnant, size of the mum and the baby and the amount of fluid around the baby. All of these factors affect the sound transmission and all babies and mums scan differently.

The Ultrasound Nursery will endeavour to produce the highest grade images that can be achieved on the day. Those images that are seen in much of the media are produced in the most optimal of circumstances however all images on our Website, brochures and Facebook are from scans performed at The Ultrasound Nursery.
