I’ve rounded up 5 of the most amazing 3D & 4D Ultrasound Centers in Columbus, below!
Seeing your baby’s face for the first time is such an amazing experience. A 4D ultrasound will show you, in real-time, your baby’s movement! You’ll get to see them wiggle, yawn, kick around, open and close their eyes, and maybe even suck their thumb. It’s such a beautiful experience to get a glimpse of your baby while they are still in the womb. And I personally think it’s a wonderful way to bond with your baby even further!
While my job is to capture your newborn’s photos, I know that some parents simply cannot wait that long to have a photo of their cherished baby. Welcoming a new baby is such an exciting time in any family’s life. I personally believe that it’s so important to honor your baby while they are still snug inside the womb. Planning a 3D or 4D ultrasound is a perfect way to do that!
A quick note before you scroll through the list below! The best time to book or plan for a 3D or 4D ultrasound is from 24 to 32 weeks. If you wait until the 33-week mark or beyond, your baby has already begun their descent. This can make the imaging process quite difficult. With that, here are 5 amazing 3D & 4D ultrasound centers in or around Columbus!
The first stop on my list of 5 amazing 3D & 4D ultrasound centers in Columbus is Ultrasona. Ultrasona’s sonographers have over 75 years of combined experience. Additionally, they are the first facility in the Columbus area to offer 5D-HD live ultrasounds!
Ultrasona offers a military discount and they switch out their affordable deals on a monthly basis. Ultrasona also provides a money-back guarantee on their accuracy in determining the gender of your baby! Isn’t that crazy good? It’s the perfect ultrasound center to book a visit with in Columbus if you’re planning on having a gender reveal party!
It’s always recommended to drink plenty of water prior to your 3D or 4D ultrasound appointment in order to increase the visibility of your amniotic fluid. However, if for some reason your baby is not cooperating on the day of your appointment, Ultrasona will provide you with a free return visit. Which will be booked at the discretion of their sonographer.
Lastly, Ultrasona is the only 4D ultrasound provider in Columbus that includes a medical review with their appointments. If for some reason, anything is found during your session, Ultrasona will contact your physician or midwife, to give you the peace of mind needed to ensure a bright healthy future for your baby.

Little Bellies Ultrasound & Pregnancy Spa was founded in 2015 in the state of Florida and now serves multiple locations nationwide, including Columbus! Little Bellies is comprised of a team of OB/GYN doctors & professionals who are dedicated to caring for women, before, during, and after pregnancy. Which is so rare to find!
Under Little Bellies list of services, you’ll find 2D, 3D, 4D, and 5D ultrasounds. They also offer DNA gender testing and an 8k realistic view. Let me be the first to tell you that the 8k realistic view is amazing! It’s an add-on service that shows you a hyper-realistic image of what your baby will look like, once they make it earthside. They submit your ultrasound pictures to a group of artists in order to create portrait renderings of your baby. You can expect to have your 8k realistic view portrait within 3 business days of your appointment. However, something to note if you do plan on booking an 8k appointment with Little Bellies, in order to complete the service they do need a frontal capture of your baby. So baby will have to cooperate, just a tad, in order to get it done!
In addition to the services they provide of getting a glimpse of your beautiful baby, they also offer the mamas pre and post-natal massage and stretch mark therapy. Little Bellies has its own line of stretch mark therapy products which you can pick up on their website, or through Amazon Prime. Pretty amazing right?
