How Many Weeks Do You Have To Be For A My First Baby Picture Ultrasound Session?
My First baby Pictures offers different packages.

The amount of weeks pregnant you are depends on how you can view your baby. Early scans after 6 weeks and up to 12 weeks shows the whole baby in the womb. Babies have a more skeletal appearance from 16 to 24 weeks with the 3d and 4d images & your are able to view more of your baby on the ultrasound monitor and witness the amazing development already underway because the baby is smaller at this time. From 23 weeks your baby starts developing a fat layer that fills in their features so you will see more facial details. Many soon-to-be parents choose to come in twice or more to see their baby at various stages.

My first baby pictures believes the best time to visit us is 6-36 weeks into your pregnancy after you have had your antenatal scan requested by the Dr. We do see women up to full term, but with variable results. An ultrasound image depends upon the baby’s position, size and, so we cannot guarantee images quality due to those factors.
