    well... I want to book a 3d scan and the place ive found is only £120 for 5 pics and a dvd (so quite a bit cheaper than babybond) But ive asked on here and no one has heard of this place 'See Your Baby' In leicester. Now my OH said its all probably a big con and they will just play a video of a 3d scan on the screen. :(

    This wouldnt happen right? Now im doubting if its worth the money as £120 is quite a lot of money to us. :cry:

    Dont know what to do now as i wanted to book for christmas eve so i could show all my family the pics over christmas.

    Help!! x

    Well Babybond do a 4D Solo which includes stills and dvd for £139.00 so not much more....can you stretch that little bit more for peave of mind?

    I don't know about the place you talk of because I'm in London but I'm sure they wouldn't just show you a scan of just any baby..

    I have been to Babybond for a gender scan and will be going back for our 4d scan at the end of Jan and I really can't rate them enough :hugs:

    I'm sure it's not scam, you would be able to tell! I had a 4d scan done with my DD and you can tell it's not a scam.. I don't think 120£ is that cheap so why should it be a scam? I would go for it! xxx

    As you know Im in Hereford and I went to 'MUMS' in Birmingham, I had my neucal (spelt wrong prob) there and there were really good. Im going to have a 4d scan done there too but im not sure how much it is.. they will have a website.

    Although 'Babybond' sounds good too.. not sure where they are though.. brum or cardiff i can imagine!

    Hope your well lovey xxx

    Does your hospital not do it? Mine does and it only cost £50 for a 20 min scan,8 pics and a cd of pics (got 27 on it) and it was brilliant :)

    Hospital? Ive never heard that you can have it done at the hospital so im guessing that its not offered here. But that sounds like a very good deal that you got! Ive had a PM from another lady that knows of the place i mentioned and the reviews were not good so im going to have to fork out a bit more cash and go somewhere else :) x

    I really dont think they would set up a place like that to scam you. £120 is not that cheap, it's not as if it's too good to be true.

    I'd go for it and if it wasn't what I expected I wouldn't pay.

    Babybond are expensive, there are two places around here much cheaper than them and thy are genuine places x

    If you are in leicester I can highly recommend Baby bond in rutland..I had a scan there with my 5 year old dd and it was fab, lovely atmosphere, nice surroundings etc

    Window to the womb in Nottingham charge £70 for a 4d scan, 20 minute dvd and i think its 6 pictures.
    I went there 3 times with my son.. if you go more than once they also discount it. I think I only paid £50 after the first visit.

    It was only £9 more (£139) for our one at babybond and we got around 6 black and white pics and a 12 min dvd so paying just £9 more really is worth it and they were really nice and the scan was really clear too.
