What’s Included with a Keepsake Ultrasound?

The first moment you see your baby is one you never forget. When you’re pregnant, it can be difficult to imagine what the little bump inside you looks like. However, thanks to ultrasound technology, you and your family can get a sneak peek of your little one. 

At Southern Crescent Women’s HealthCare, with offices in Fayetteville, Newnan, and Stockbridge, Georgia, our experienced care team has a way for you to enjoy the image of your growing baby while you wait for their arrival. How? With keepsake ultrasounds!

Take a moment to learn more about this nondiagnostic service and what’s included with your package.  

What is a keepsake ultrasound?

Keepsake ultrasounds work like a regular ultrasound, sending high-frequency soundwaves to capture images of your baby while in utero. These nondiagnostic ultrasounds aren’t used to identify any health concerns, and they don’t take the place of your regularly scheduled fetal anatomy scan.

Instead, keepsake ultrasounds offer a way for you and your family to get a sneak peek of your growing baby. You can keep the images from your keepsake ultrasound to share with your family and friends and build a stronger sense of connection with your baby. 

What’s included with a keepsake ultrasound? 

Our team at Southern Crescent Women’s HealthCare offers two different keepsake ultrasound packages, and what’s included varies depending on which package you choose. Here’s a closer look at both: 

Option 1: Gender 2D ultrasound

If you’re excited to see whether you’re going to have a boy or girl, a gender 2D ultrasound could be the right option for you. This keepsake ultrasound takes place at 16-18 weeks, and, among other things, it reveals your baby’s gender.

The entire process only takes about 10 minutes and includes:

Talk to your provider about scheduling a gender 2D ultrasound, or call our office to learn more.

Option 2: 3D/4D ultrasound    

If you can’t wait to see your baby in more detail than a traditional ultrasound can provide, a 3D/4D keepsake ultrasound is the solution for you. Typically scheduled at 28-32 weeks, you’ll see three-dimensional images of your baby with amazing detail and have a chance to watch as they move.

A 3D/4D ultrasound takes about 20 minutes to perform, and it includes:

Note that the 3D/4D keepsake package is only available at our Fayetteville office.
