Peek Before Birth

Most expectant parents eagerly wait for the first ultrasound sight of the baby to be born in six months' time//. It is often the first proof that all is well and the pregnancy is on track.

This is often the only view they get to see of their child until the day of the birth. However this is not enough for an increasing number of parents who are willing to pay hundreds of pounds for a clearer picture of their baby in the womb.

Terry says: "It's basically a nice scan for women to bond with their babies, to see the a real view of the arms, the face, the legs. It's the chance to see them opening their eyes, yawning or moving about. It also gives them reassurance.

"There are a lot of 4D scanning studios opening up throughout the country and this is what people obviou
