3D & 4D Ultrasound


Seeing your unborn baby in the womb by high-definition ultrasound is a fascinating experience, and for many parents-to-be it is one of most treasured experiences of pregnancy. The Monterey Birth & Wellness Center provides the highest quality 3D ultrasound images and 4D ultrasound video available. These types of ultrasounds are safe for mother and baby when conducted by our expert sonographer, Lance Dursi. Book at appointment by emailing us at info@montereybirthcenter.com or book online 24/7

3D & 4D ultrasound for the health of the baby

Our ultrasound expert will perform a fetal sonogram abdominally.

A 3D image or 4D video always includes:

  • Thorough fetal anatomy screening

  • Fetal measurements

  • Placenta location

  • Amniotic fluid volume assessment

  • Scan for birth defects

In addition to an amazing visual keepsake, the report of all findings is forwarded to the midwife, physician, or clinic monitoring your pregnancy.

Note that we respect those choosing not to know the gender of their baby, and if that is your choice, we will keep gender information strictly confidential.

3D & 4D ultrasound out of pure curiosity

While traditional 2D ultrasounds are medically useful, many expectant parents find the blurry, grey photo marked by striations to be deflating at best. By contrast, a 3D image of your baby can reveal the face, open eyes, body position, a yawn and so much more. Call us corny but you might just feel love at first sight!  

3D ultrasound and 4D video ultrasound (the 4th dimension being time) can provide a positive image of your baby and can be an incredibly bonding experience between the baby and its mother, father, and extended family members. Something special happens that transcends words when expecting parents see the baby in high definition for the first time. It’s simply a magical technology. While you hold the baby inside your womb it is the closest you can get to seeing it before you hold it in your arms.
