3D/4D Ultrasounds

Coastal OB/GYN now offers 3D/4D ultrasound. 4D Ultrasound allows you to see your baby move, stretch, yawn, sleep and smile. You simply won’t want to miss this opportunity to “photograph” your baby for Grandma, Big Sister or Daddy – before delivery!

Our Ultrasound sonographer will make every effort to get you the best possible pictures and the absolute most fun for you during your “Fancy Features ©” session. Sometimes though, even on the best of days, the outcome is just a little less than perfect. We understand, and hope you will too.

It is important to note that a “Fancy Features ©” session is not a diagnostic session. It’s a time for you to enjoy your baby; it’s a time for you and your baby to play together. We concentrate on your care all week long. You need to keep all of your regular appointments, take care of yourself, and be prepared for “playtime” at your “Fancy Features ©” session.


  • The optimal gestational age for “Fancy Features ©” is between 28 and 32 weeks.
  • Your “Photo Session” will last about 30 minutes.
  • Seeing your baby for the first time will warm your heart. We welcome your family to share the experience; but please, no more than three (3) guests or family members.
  • You will receive 5-6 black & white ultrasound pictures, a CD-R of 50-60 “sepia tone” photographs for you to print, and a DVD movie of the whole 30 minute session for $175.00.
  • Plus, we will do gender determination, if requested.
  • For the BEST 3D/4D ultrasound, please drink plenty of water the week leading up to your appointment. We don’t need a full bladder for your scan, but we do need for you to be hydrated!
  • “Fancy Features ©” appointments are not covered by insurance and pre-payment is required at the time the appointment is scheduled. For your convenience we accept cash, check and VISA or MASTERCARD.
  • There is a “No Show” fee of $100.00 for appointments missed. We are happy to reschedule, provided you give us a minimum of 24 hours notice; but, if you don’t show we can only refund or apply 50% of the fee to your next appointment.
