Though doesn’t show the exact 100% facial features, it gives you a clear enough face to let you know what to expect. But you don't need to worry because all of these face mapping techniques are harmless and are proven to be safe for your baby.

The only thing you need to consider when it comes to Ultrasound scanning is that your baby’s facial features are still changing at a rapid pace. If you have seen the scanned 4D model of your baby’s face today, most probably, the features would have changed in the next three to five days.

2. Computer Software

There are a lot of computer software available that you can try out to know how your baby will look like. These computer software might be offline or online. You can simply search them up on Google. Examples of these online apps you can try are Baby Picture Maker, Future Baby, and Pro Profs. To use Baby Picture Maker and Future Baby, you simply upload a picture of yourself and your spouse.

The online app then automatically uses your facial features and merges it one another. This then creates the possible face of your soon-to-be-born baby. Meanwhile, Pro Profs is a quiz-type kind of app that asks you questions regarding you and your spouse’s physical features. It then uses the information to describe in deep detail the face of your baby. Meanwhile, Baby Maker and Make a Baby are a few of the most popular apps you can download on your mobile device.

Using these computer software or apps are the easiest way that you can do to determine the possible face of your baby. However, the only downside to using these is that they're not that accurate. They are just designed for entertainment purposes only. They do not have any real medical or scientific basis when it comes to determining your baby's face or physical features.

This is the reason why you don’t need to take the information that these software or apps will give you, because most of the time, it doesn’t work that way. The way your baby looks is determined by how your genes and DNA mix up with your partner’s. It’s not a perfect 50 to 50 ratio of you and your partner’s features that will result to how your baby will look.

3. You and Your Partner's Face

The next thing or factor you need to consider to know how your baby will look like is by simply observing your face and your partner’s face. As simple and as obvious as it sounds, this is very effective because the physical features of your baby will surely come from the both of you because both of you are the parents of the child.

By simply observing your facial features, such as the shape of your face, the size of your eyes, the way your nose is pointed, or your skin color, you can come up with the possible look of your baby. You can also observe your partner’s face and see if you have any similarities with each other.

4. Venn Diagram

Venn Diagrams are a popular way to determine the similarities and differences of multiple parties, be it object, persons, animals, or ideologies. Well, when it comes to determining the face of your baby, you can also try out this one. Using a Venn Diagram is very important because this is where you list down all of the similar physical features as well as the differences between you and your partner’s face.

By simply observing each other’s face and critically describing each other’s physical features, you can easily determine what physical traits might be passed on to your child. Once you have listed all of the similarities and differences on the Venn Diagram, you can then see the traits which have a high chance of being passed onto. These are the ones that are found in the part where the circle merges.

5. Your Relatives

How your baby will look like is not only determined by the look of their parents, but also by how their relatives look like. This is because of the way genes work. Each family tree has their similarities that give them an identity. You might have observed a family or a clan that have circular faces, or might share similar skin colors or nose shapes. This is caused by the family's genealogy where the common traits are passed from one person to another.

With this, it makes perfect sense for you also to consider how your other relatives look like. You can observe the physical features of your mother or father, as well as the parents of your partner. Or perhaps you can also check out the physical characteristics of your siblings as well as your partner's. Your child is a product of two family trees, which is why the traits between your family and your partner's family have a high probability of being passed to your child.

Knowing the Process

Step #1: Visit a Doctor

The first thing you need to do to know how your baby will look like is to visit a doctor. You need to put the medical and scientific processes first because these are the ones that are more precise and accurate in giving you the possible physical characteristics of your baby. Before visiting a doctor, you should first do research on which doctor you're going to choose. You can do this by simply hitting up Google and searching a reputable doctor there.

It's very important that you do not just consider any doctor because the doctor you should get should either be a gynecologist or a pediatrician. If you want to make sure that you have the best medical treatment possible, then you can have both of them. When you've chosen a doctor, you can then setup an appointment with them. They will then examine your health, give you the needed medicines and supplements to ensure a healthy and pregnancy. You can then ask them anything about your conception as well as what to expect from your baby.

Step #2: Have a 4D Ultrasound Checkup

Once you’ve already visited a gynecologist, you’re most likely have been recommended to undergo a 4D Ultrasound Checkup. This medical process is the one which determines the gender of your baby. It does this by using Ultrasound waves to catch frequencies that are then translated into a 4D model of your baby’s body features. Though not all Ultrasound scans have a 4D facial recognition feature, it’s best if you choose a doctor or a clinic that has this specific kind of Ultrasound scanner.

Step #3: Use an App

The world that we are living in now is surrounded by devices of all sorts. Information flows through every aspect of our daily life. It's because of this that even the medical world or more precisely the aspect of pregnancy or childbirth can also now be controlled by our very own devices. What we're talking about here are the apps that you can use to determine the face of your baby. You can search the internet, and you'll find a lot of "How would my baby look like?" apps.

They take the form of online apps, to offline software, and even to mobile apps. Some of the online baby face apps can try out are Baby Picture Maker, Future Baby, and Pro Profs. You can use all the three apps to come up with the possible facial look of your baby. If you’re always on the go, you can also opt for mobile apps such as Baby Maker and Make a Baby. You can download them either in Google Play or the App Store.

Step #4: Compare You and Your Partner’s Face

The last thing you want to do is to compare your face with your partner’s face. You can do this by simply talking it out with your partner or with someone else. This is one of the most enjoyable ways to know how your baby will look like because you are interacting with another person. It’ll also help in preparing you to give birth to your child because you get moral support by simply talking it out with someone else.

This is also the time when you can use a Venn Diagram in comparing you and your partner's face. Be critical about it and honestly write down your similar features as well as both of your differences. It's through this that you can know what physical features you can expect from your child. If the "merger" box or part in the Venn Diagram is already filled up, you can check out those similarities from both of your faces. Those are the ones that are most likely going to be passed to your child.


With all of these being said, you can see how important it is to know how your baby will look like before they get born. This is because it lets you know what to expect from them. Will they look like you or look like your husband? Or will your child be a combination of both your faces?

We will love our baby no matter what they look like, but it's just exciting to make guesses as to how our baby will look like. This is the reason why we want to know their facial features even if they’re not yet born.
