Keepsake Ultrasound

What it is and what you receive

Our keepsake ultrasounds are a 3D/4D ultrasound experience for pregnant women — a combination of 3D ultrasounds that are still photos and 4D ultrasounds that show your baby’s movement, with the additional dimension of time. This is a non-medical scan that is intended to enhance your bond with your baby. Brothers, sisters and grandparents may also enjoy being able to share in this special bonding experience.

What you get:

  • 30 minute 3D 4D ultrasound session
  • 4 black and white thermal prints of 3D images
  • CD with 3D and 4D ultrasound images
  • 2 tinted photo images

Will I always get a beautiful picture of my baby?

Most of the time, you will get beautiful 3D and 4D ultrasound pictures of your baby. Sometimes the baby’s position, the gestational age, the amount of fluid, and the amount of maternal tissue may affect the quality of your pictures.

What it costs

Our Prenatal Portrait Scan costs $150. Twins are an additional $50. Insurance does not cover this non-diagnostic ultrasound. We accept cash, Discover, Visa or MasterCard. Payment is due the day of your appointment.

Preparation and procedure

Be sure and drink plenty of water in the days prior to your scan. You don’t need a full bladder for your scan. Eat a meal right before your scan to make sure the baby is awake. We don’t recommend scheduling your fetal portrait and your glucose test on the same day.
We encourage you to include family and friends in this special event. You may bring up to 3 guests to your session.


It is usually best to have your sitting between 26 and 30 weeks.

Once you have had your diagnostic ultrasound to screen for any anomalies, our front desk staff will be happy to set up your appointment for your keepsake ultrasound in our Ultrasound Center. You can contact us at 573-443-8796.
