BUNBURY, Australia – Expecting parents love to see those first ultrasound images of their baby.

But in Bunbury, Australia, a woman who runs a 4-D ultrasound business faces charges of faking the ultrasounds she’s sent to parents.

Rawinia Hayes pleaded not guilty to nine charges in the case.  A trial date is expected to be set in April.

An investigation began when more than 100 people complained on social media that the ultrasounds they bought looked identical to images online or given to other parents.

The FDA recently warned parents to skip any unnecessary scans to help keep the baby safe.   It also cautions parents to make sure they have any ultrasound images done by a doctor or trained technician.
