Who are Hey Baby 4D Franchises?
Hey Baby 4D is a network of private ultrasound clinics. Our original clinic opened in Derby in 2015 and we began to franchise the business in 2018. We specialise in non-diagnostic pregnancy scans and screening tests which are carried out by a qualified sonographer. Hey Baby 4D are now one of the largest and most experienced ultrasound brands in the UK.
At Hey Baby 4D, we believe every expectant parent deserves safe and high-quality care during their pregnancy and beyond. Our mission is to provide expectant parents with a caring and safe service where they can take their time to bond with their baby, all for a fair price.
By joining the Hey Baby 4D franchise, you can experience the daily joy of families celebrating a gender reveal, a couple reassured about their pregnancy and the treasured support offered when pregnancy issues arise.
Why become part of Hey Baby 4D’s network of franchisees?

Our tried and tested business model and years of expertise in the ultrasound sector give you a head start, while our ongoing support and training will help you grow your business efficiently.
How much does a Hey Baby 4D franchise cost?
The Hey Baby 4D franchise fee is £15,000-plus VAT. This secures the franchisee’s chosen territory for 5 years and covers the use of the Hey Baby 4D brand name along with assistance setting up the new clinic. New franchise owners will also require another £15,000-£35,000 of working capital to cover additional setup costs. The start-up and ongoing monthly costs will vary depending on location (due to local costs for builders and rent prices for example), but the Hey Baby franchise team will assist with creating a clear, personalised business plan prior to launch.
