Oh, hey baby! understands the importance of proper prenatal medical care for both the expectant mother and the fetus.

Therefore, in order to provide our patients with an appropriate, meaningful ultrasound screening, Oh, hey baby! Requires that you: (i) certify that you are under the care of a physician or other health care provider, and that you are not obtaining this ultrasound as a replacement for, or in lieu of, standard prenatal medical care.

As a further condition to receiving ultrasound services from Oh, hey baby! you hereby acknowledge, understand and agree to the following statements:

  • This ultrasound: (i) is an elective procedure that I have voluntarily requested, and (ii) is not intended to take the place of a diagnostic ultrasound or any other test or treatment that has been or may be recommended by your healthcare provider.
  • Because of its elective nature, this ultrasound is not covered by medicare or any private health cover. You acknowledge payment is required in full for the ultrasound on the day. 
  • The technician who performs this ultrasound, while trained to provide such ultrasound services, is not a doctor, nurse or healthcare provider, and cannot interpret, diagnose medical conditions from, or otherwise offer medical conclusions regarding the images produced.
  • As used by Oh, hey baby! this ultrasound is intended to provide enhanced images for the purpose of viewing fetal movement in utero. The technician will make no attempt to guarantee a medically inclusive ultrasound or fetal well being.
  • You understand that you are responsible for contacting your own healthcare provider if you have any questions concerning this ultrasound or any other aspect of your pregnancy.
  • You understand that the quality of the ultrasound and visual media, depends upon many factors including; the mothers body tissue content and weight, the developmental stage and fetal position. You understand that Oh, hey baby! does not guarantee the quality of photos or any audio visual media, or the ability to visualize any characteristics of the fetus.
  • You understand that publication, presentation or distribution of any video taken during the ultrasound session, not provided by Oh, hey baby! is strictly prohibited unless agreed upon prior consent
  • You understand that while we make every effort to capture a good image of your baby, we cannot guarantee the cooperation nor the position of the baby. Sometimes if the baby’s position is face down, e., towards your spine, it may be difficult to see the baby’s face. In this case, a one-time complimentary rescan will be scheduled but payment is required upfront in full and a scheduled appointment will be booked. Every baby scans differently, depending on the gestational age, position, amount of fluid, placental location and mother’s body weight. However, we promise to make every effort to obtain the best images. If we are unable to get a good image of your baby on the second free of charge scan, we have still provided the service of the 3D/4D Ultrasound thus we will not provide a refund if you are unhappy with the results.
  • You agree to images captured being used on websites, social media and in Oh, hey baby advertising. You must advise us in writing if you do not want us to use any photos, please email hello@ohheybaby.com.au prior to your appointment.  

You understand that factors beyond our control may also affect the ability to accurately determine the gender of the fetus, and that Oh, hey baby! can provide no warranty or guarantee as to the accuracy of any such determination.
