What if my baby is not co operating?
If baby doesn’t cooperate on the day our offer to you is one free rescan this covers all our 4D baby scan packages.
4D ultrasound depends on the position of baby and the amount of fluid around babies face. Sometimes baby is lying in such a position that it is impossible to obtain good images, We’ll try all of the tricks that we know but ultimately if we just can’t get any images, we will automatically rebook you for one complimentary rescan.
Our free rescan is offered on the understanding that you acknowledge that we are unable to guarantee that baby’s position will be ideal for a 4D scan. Free rescans do not have any monitory value and are not transferable.
What if I am late for my appointment?
We understand that life happens and sometimes you may struggle to get here on time.however anyone that arrives later than 10 mins for their appointment may not be able to be seen by our sonographer and you may have to rebook your appointment. There may also be a 50% charge as this will be classed as a missed appointment. (This is at the managements discretion). This is to make it fair on people who have appointments booked in for the rest of the day, in order to ensure that their appointments run on time.
