We provide the complete spectrum of pregnancy scans, whether you’ve opted for private maternity care or to have your baby on the NHS. You may want to know the sex of your baby, perhaps you’ve had a previous miscarriage and need reassurance, or you require a detailed screening for a chromosomal abnormality, such as Down Syndrome. Whatever your requirement, our expert team are here to help you as your pregnancy progresses. 

Routine pregnancy scans

The early pregnancy scan is the first pregnancy scan that you can have and is not routinely available on the NHS. It is often done if you are not sure if you are pregnant or to provide reassurance in the very early stages of your pregnancy. It is particularly reassuring for women who have suffered a previous miscarriage or ectopic pregnancy.

An early pregnancy scan will:

  • Determine the presence of a pregnancy
  • Confirm the fetal heartbeat after 7 weeks
  • Check the viability of the pregnancy
  • Diagnose a multiple pregnancy
  • Calculate your estimated due date (EDD)

Following an early pregnancy scan, we would recommend that you have a Harmony Prenatal Test which can be arranged from ten weeks of pregnancy.  This non-invasive test screens for Down’s Syndrome and other genetic conditions.

A growth scan is a highly accurate way to track the progress of your baby’s growth, it is sometimes called the wellbeing scan or fetal growth scan. All measurements are indicated on a scale that shows the upper and lower limits of the normal growth range. As long as your baby’s measurements fall within this window this is considered normal growth and should be very reassuring.

A growth scan will:

  • Check your baby’s heart beat
  • Measure the circumference and diameter of your baby’s head
  • Measure the size of your baby’s waist
  • Measure the length of your baby’s femur
  • Examine your placenta
  • Check the amount of fluid around your baby
  • Check the baby’s movements

An early anatomy scan is an opportunity to examine your baby’s anatomy in detail if you have missed your 12 week nuchal scan or simply need extra reassurance. An early anatomy scan helps to monitor the development of your baby, and although it is not strictly necessary, as a full anatomical examination will be performed during the anomaly scan at 20 to 24 weeks, it can be reassuring.

An early anatomy scan will:

  • Show your baby’s heart beating and check the rate
  • Check growth by measuring the head, waist and thigh bone (femur) of your baby
  • Look at the placenta and the amount of fluid around your baby
  • Examine your baby’s organs in detail (as many as are visible)
  • Check the gender of your baby from 15 weeks – we’ll only tell you if you want to know

The anomaly scan is an important milestone in your pregnancy. It provides a detailed anatomical check with growth measurements and looks for the first signs of genetic disorders. This scan is sometimes called a level two fetal ultrasound. It is important that any abnormalities are detected at this stage so that the remainder of your pregnancy, delivery and any post natal treatment is put in place if required.

A 20-week anomaly scan will:

  • Check the baby’s anatomy
  • Determine the size of the placenta
  • Assess the amount of amniotic fluid
  • Measure the baby’s growth – including the baby’s head, brain, abdomen and legs
  • Check the heart, brain, spine, bowel, stomach, bladder, kidneys and limbs for any abnormalities
  • Assess the placenta, amniotic fluid and umbilical cord
  • Determine the sex of the baby – if you wish

Gender scans

Using 2D technology the gender scan is usually performed through your tummy, but sometimes the sonographer will ask to perform an internal scan to gain a clearer view. We can give you the results of your scan during your appointment, as long as the sonographer has obtained a clear view of your baby’s genitalia. We will also perform a growth scan to check on the health of the baby.

A gender identification and growth scan will:

  • Identify the gender of your baby
  • Check your baby’s heart beat

Genetic tests

Pregnancy monitoring

A cervical scan is an ultrasound examination during which your cervix (the neck of your womb) is assessed and measured. It’s important to measure the cervix during pregnancy as it can help identify if you’re at risk of having a premature delivery. We measure the length of your cervix and look at the internal end of the cervix to assess for widening and see what happens when the cervix is put under pressure, for instance, when you cough. A cervical scan is performed internally for optimum accuracy.

A shorter measurement of your cervix may mean you’re more at risk of having your baby too early for survival. You may need a cervical scan if you’ve already experienced an early delivery, or if you’ve had a procedure performed on your cervix, such as laser surgery. Having a cervical scan will help your midwife or obstetrician decide whether you should be considered for a cervical cerclage, or cervical stitch.

We also combine the cervical scan with either a growth scan or welfare scan. This gives us the opportunity to check on the growth, health and wellbeing of your baby.

*Please note that we don't perform a cervical scan without a pregnancy scan.

A Group B Strep (GBS) screening checks for the presence of a harmful bacteria that causes life-threatening infections in newborn babies. Two separate swabs are taken and sent to the laboratory for analysis. One is taken from the lower region of the vagina and one from the anus. As well as screening for GBS, a presentation scan will also take place to help to determine the position of your baby immediately before birth. Whether you are planning on a natural birth or a caesarean section, the information from the scan is helpful to your midwife or obstetrician in helping to determine the position of your baby and the placenta before delivery and avoiding any complications, such as placenta praevia.

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 with the 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.

Consultations

A private consultation gives you the opportunity to ask one of our expert fetal medicine consultants questions about your fertility, pregnancy or gynaecological condition. This can be in addition to the scan service that you have already booked. This will allow additional time to fully discuss your concerns and receive a detailed response without compromising your scanning time.

A fetal medicine consultation is recommended if you have a high risk pregnancy where an anomaly has been detected. A high risk pregnancy is usually where an anomaly has been detected in an earlier pregnancy scan, often at the 20 week anomaly scan, although it may be after your 12 week nuchal scan. The scan may have identified one of these pregnancy abnormalities. 

During your appointment our fetal medicine specialist will ensure you receive a comprehensive diagnosis and consultation with time to discuss your pregnancy. Our specialist will:

  • Consult with you on your case history
  • Analyse your previous scan reports
  • Counsel you over the likely outcome of your pregnancy
  • Produce a detailed report
  • Suggest a future management plan
  • Recommend a suitable specialist or specialists who may assist with your pregnancy or post-natal care

The specialist may also recommend an ultrasound examination, blood or genetic testing at additional cost.
