Why do some Facilities advertise they will get me better pictures if we did not get good pictures elsewhere?

We cannot speak for other facilities or their advertisements, but we can tell you that Pink-A-Blue customers are always overwhelmingly satisfied, and return to Pink-A-Blue for each subsequent pregnancy.

While scheduling your appointment, we always provide detailed instructions during our phone conversation about what you can do to achieve great pictures. When all instructions are followed we see incomparable results. However not everyone chooses to follow instructions and they may not get the best images of their baby.

Every 3 years Pink-A-Blue upgrades equipment to the latest brand new State of the art ultrasound machine, so we will ALWAYS obtain the best possible images of your baby! Pink-A-Blue also only staffs MEDICALLY CERTIFIED ultrasound technicians to perform your ultrasound, and that is why we can offer you much more than other facilities of our kind. At Pink-A-Blue you will not only see what your baby looks like, but you will also find out how much he/she weighs, if the baby has hair, what the heart rate is, and what position your baby is in…These are only a few examples of what you can expect from us! Don’t be fooled by false advertisement and promises, Pink-A-Blue remains to be the best in the industry since 2007…just ask thousands of our satisfied customers!

What if I am unable to make it to my appointment? What is the cancellation policy?

We understand life is busy, and plans change…if you are unable to attend your Pink-A-Blue for any reason please call 48 hours in advance to either cancel or reschedule prior to your appointment. There are other moms just like you who would like to have your appointment spot if you can’t make it. If you miss your appointment without prior notice you will receive a bill for a portion of the ultrasound due to the fact that a technician will be present for your appointment.

Also, if your were required to pay a deposit for a Friday or Saturday appointment this is non-refundable. Therefore if you miss your appointment you will not receive any money back and it will not count toward another appointment. The deposit will be for that appointment only.

Do I need to have a full bladder for my ultrasound? How long should I hold it?

Yes, we do require that all moms have a least a semi full bladder for their Pink-A-Blue. This helps hold the baby outside your pelvis, and makes it easier to visualize. It is best to empty your bladder NO LESS THAN 15 minutes prior to your Pink-A-Blue appointment time. (For example, if your Pink-A-Blue is at 2:00pm, then you can use the restroom at 1:45pm….but not any time after that) If you need to arrive 15 minutes early so you can empty your bladder, or stop somewhere on your way to empty. It’s always best to begin your ultrasound with a full bladder and the technician will let you empty it if she sees it’s necessary.

How early should I arrive to Pink-A-Blue? What happens if I am late?

You should arrive to Pink-A-Blue five to ten minutes before your scheduled appointment. The appointment time we give you is the start time of your Pink-A-Blue, therefore all paperwork and payments should take place a few minutes before this time. Your ultrasound will begin at the time your appointment is scheduled, so please arrive on time to ensure maximum viewing time allotted.

If you are late this will most likely result in your Pink-A-Blue being cut short, and if you miss the entire appointment time we have allotted for your Pink-A-Blue you will most likely have to reschedule. As we schedule all appointments back to back, and we promise each mom that her appointment will begin on time. Pink-A-Blue is very generous with how much time you receive for your appointment so please make every attempt to not be late.

What should I wear to my ultrasound? What if I have piercings on my belly?

You may wear whatever you like, however Pink-A-Blue recommends that you NOT wear your regular jeans that button and zip. Not only do regular jeans make it harder to visualize the pelvic area because they are tight, but the button and zipper on regular jeans may pose a threat to the special 4D probe. Maternity Pants with a belly band are perfect, or you are welcome to wear a dress or skirt and we will be happy to provide you with a sheet to cover your legs and bottom.

If you have a belly ring, you will have to remove it prior to your Pink-A-Blue; 4D/HD ultrasound probes are specially designed with crystals and should never come into contact with metal. If you have dermal piercings that cannot be removed Pink-A-Blue will NOT be able to perform your ultrasound until you have them removed surgically.

What is the Digital Album?

The digital album is actually an App for your smart phone or tablet with all of the images from your Pink-A-Blue!

What is the difference between the CD and the DVD you get with some of the packages?

The CD will have all of the still images taken during your Pink-A-Blue. The pictures are saved in JPEG format so you can use the CD to print more pictures, email, or post to FACEBOOK.

The DVD will record your entire Pink-A-Blue from start to finish. You can view your DVD on a DVD player or in most computers. If your package does not come with a DVD, feel free to add one or add extra copies for grandparents.

What is the difference between 2D, 3D and 4D & HDLive ultrasound? What will I view at my Pink-A-Blue?

2D or 2 Dimensional ultrasound is standard black and white ultrasound like they use at your Dr’s office. With 2D ultrasound you will see the baby’s organs and skeletal system. This is very useful for measurements, heart beat, and to detect abnormalities.

3D or 3 Dimensional ultrasound redirects the sound waves as to show the surface of an object, in our case the surface of your baby! So you will be able to see the baby from the outside instead of its bones.

4D or 4 Dimensional ultrasound is when you are using 3D in Real Time, meaning you are viewing the baby live as they are occurring in the womb. So you will be able to visualize facial expressions, yawns, crying, sucking the thumb or toe, and much more.

HDLive is High Definition 4d!!!! HDLive is unlike anything you have seen in the prenatal imaging industry, and Pink-A-Blue is proud to be the first to make this amazing technology available to you at no additional cost!

At Pink-A-Blue we use both 2D and 4D & HD ultrasound. Our gender determinations will be done primarily in 2D with a Quick Peek of 4D/HD; and our 4D/HD ultrasound will only use 2D briefly to position the 4D/HD and measure your baby, therefore your Pink-A-Blue will be primarily in 4D/HD Real Time.

What if my baby is breech?

Breech position simply means that the baby’s head is positioned at the top of your uterus. If you know that your baby is breech prior to your Pink-A-Blue we do advise you reschedule you appointment a few weeks to allow more time for the baby to turn into the vertex or head down position. Good pictures can be obtained with breech babies but are much more likely if the baby is head down. However, some babies remain breech until very late in the pregnancy or never turn. If this is the case, you can still have a Pink-A-Blue and we should be able to get good images as long as you have plenty of amniotic fluid.
