Frequently Asked Questions

What is 3D/4D Ultrasound and how does it work?

  • Using the same type of sound waves as your Physician does in a 2D ultrasound, a 3D ultrasound shows a 3-dimensional image of your baby in the womb. The 4D part of the ultrasound has the effect of a live video.


Is 3D/4D Ultrasound safe?

  • Yes. Ultrasounds have been used as a routine part of prenatal care for decades and there is no evidence to show that they are harmful for you or your baby. 

  • We always follow all ultrasound guidelines to keep you and your baby safe.


How early in my pregnancy can I book a 3D/4D Ultrasound with you?

  • As long as you are under the prenatal care of a Physician, you can book with Peekaboo2U Inc. starting at 18 weeks


How late in my pregnancy can I book a 3D/4D Ultrasound with you?

  • You may book a 3D/4D Ultrasound with Peekaboo2U Inc. right up to 40 weeks, however, after 35 weeks things get a little squished in there so it may be difficult to get good pictures.


Will you tell me the gender of my baby?

  • Gender determination is best done between 18-22 weeks

  • If you want to know, we will look.

  • If you don't want to know, we will avoid the area. 


What if you can't see the gender of my baby at my appointment?

  • If the baby isn't "cooperating" and the gender can not be seen, we can arrange one Free re-scan within 14 days to try to find the gender. *Free re-scan does not apply when initial Ultrasound is done after 24 weeks. Travel fee may apply for re-scan** 

Do I need a referral from my Physician?

  • No. 3D/4D Ultrasounds are fun elective procedures and are not diagnostic in nature.

  • If you have any concerns with your pregnancy please contact your Physician as we can not make a diagnosis.


Is this covered by Alberta Health or my insurance?

  • No we do not take any insurance as this is an elective procedure. 


Do I need a full bladder for my 3D/4D Ultrasound?

  • No. We want you to be as comfortable as possible.

  • Please drink plenty of water in the days leading up to your appointment so the amniotic fluid is clear to help get better photos


Can you guarantee high quality pictures every time?

  • ​The quality of pictures and gender determination has many factors: the position of your baby, placenta location, clarity of fluid and the physique/body build of the mother.

  • Image quality can not be guaranteed, and is beyond the control of Peekaboo2U Inc., due to these reasons



Can my family and friends join me for my appointment?

  • Yes! As we perform the 3D/4D Ultrasound in the comfort of your own home, you are welcome to invite your loved ones to enjoy this moment with you.


How long after my appointment do I receive my photos and/or videos?

  • Most items are available at the end of your session.

What areas do you serve?

  • Edmonton and surrounding areas

  • Travel fee may apply for locations outside of Edmonton area
