Pregnancy Follow-Up Scan

A pregnancy follow-up scan is performed after pregnancy or miscarriage, it is also known as a post-partum scan. The scan detects if there is any fetal tissue remaining in the womb and is recommended if you’ve had any bleeding in the weeks after your baby is born or after a miscarriage. The bleeding may be caused if your placenta has not been delivered completely or if you’ve had an incomplete miscarriage and some tissues remain in your womb.

The sonographer or consultant will normally perform the scan internally and will check for any remaining tissue left in your womb. There are no risks associated with having a pregnancy follow up scan and it is not painful. If any fetal tissue is revealed during the scan the sonographer or consultant may suggest one of the following options:

  • Expectant management – letting nature take its course and allowing the pregnancy to leave the body naturally without intervention.
  • Dilation and curettage (D&C) – a procedure to remove the remaining tissue. Your GP can refer you for this procedure or we can recommend a private practitioner.
