Are family and friends welcome to come to the session?

Are ultrasounds safe?
Yes. Ultrasounds have been used safely in obstetrics for over 35 years. In the many years of ultrasound use in medicine, there has never been a harmful effect shown by its use. According to the FDA, when ultrasound enters the body, it heats the tissue slightly, and the long-term effects of tissue heating are not known.” We feel your health and the health of you and your baby are of the utmost importance. We only use and own machines that meet FDA guidelines.
Do I need a note from my doctor?
No, we do not require a doctor’s note.
However, we do like that you are receiving prenatal care and will ask for your provider’s name and phone number.
Again, this is an elective, non-diagnostic ultrasound and CANNOT be substituted for a medically indicated ultrasound through your provider’s office.
We do not take measurements, screen for malformations, or determine due dates.
Do you sell gift cards?
Yes. Gift cards make a wonderful present for any mother (or father) to be.
Does insurance cover the cost of my elective ultrasound?
No. Insurance does not cover elective ultrasounds. We do accept most major credit cards, cash, and debit cards.
