Lollipop 4D Baby Scans - Manchester and Ashton

Welcome to Lollipop Baby Scans Manchester’s leading baby scan ultrasound centre based in the Northern Quarter in the city centre and Ashton-under-Lyne. 

At Lollipop Baby Scans we pride ourselves on providing a first class, friendly service. 

We give expectant mums the chance to see their little bundle growing. We use experienced staff with a collective 55 years experience of scanning and a state of the art Voluson S8 ultrasound machine ensuring your glimpse of baby, whether at 7 weeks for an early scan, 15 weeks for a gender scan or 24-30 weeks for a bonding scan is as special as you would expect at this precious time. We are here to make your pregnancy as special as we can. 

Early scans are only £50 and from 7 weeks.

Our early gender scans are from 14 weeks and we have an unrivalled accuracy record from this stage. These start at only £60 but can be used in our packages dependent on what you would like to take away with you.

Our 4D and HD baby scans from 24weeks onwards let you meet baby and increase the amazing bond you already have with them. HD scanning is the next level in baby scan and lets you see baby in greater detail than a regular 4D scan. You can bring family and friends too to help with that bond. At our Ashton branch there is plenty of room! 

At Lollipop, our main aim is and always has been to ensure the expectant mums enjoy their ultrasound experiences. With us, you can have the excitement of finding out the sex or seeing baby’s features in the confidence in the comfort of our scanning boutiques. 

We have been established in Manchester City centre for many years and have done over 15,000 scans for expectant mums. All scans from 7 weeks will include a check to see the heartbeat which can put your mind at ease. Furthermore, our friendly staff do gender scans from 14 weeks, so you can find out if it’s a girl or a boy that little bit earlier than other scan centres. You can also add gender confirmation to our bonding scans free of charge (as long as baby lets us!) and with our packages we have heartbeat teddy bears (£24.99), huge gender balloons (£25) and massive cannons (£20) for those special gender reveals.

With Lollipop you can be certain our experienced staff will help whichever stage of pregnancy you decide to book with us, which you can see here:

  • Early scans from 7 weeks to check the heartbeat and to get an estimated due date
  • Sexing/gender scans from 14 weeks, a fortnight earlier than most other scan centres
  • See your little one in glorious 4D/HD on our huge projector screen
  • Bring your family members along to see baby, we try not to have a limit on guests unlike the NHS

A 4D ultrasound test is a way of reproducing a moving image of your baby inside your womb. The 4D ultrasound uses sound waves to create this moving image. In a 3D ultrasound, you can see a three-dimensional image of your baby. A 4D ultrasound takes this experience to the next level. It creates an effect that is similar to watching a live video.

Using this technology, you can see what your baby is doing at that moment inside your womb. In fact, you can even see if your baby is yawning or smiling at that particular moment!

  • A device known as transducer is moved along your abdomen.
  • This will send the sound waves via your abdomen and through your uterus.
  • These sound waves will bounce off your baby in the form of echoes.
  • The monitor will pick up these echo messages and translate them on to the screen.
  • As your baby moves and kicks about, you will be able to see the images on the ultrasound screen.
