Ultrasound Scans

There are lots of different reasons why people choose to have private pregnancy scans, but whichever stage you are at in your pregnancy, you will find that a scan can provide you with invaluable information about the health and development of your baby. You might simply want to make sure that there is definitely a heartbeat at 6 weeks, or you may have been told that there is a potential problem and want a second opinion before deciding what to do next. Whatever your reason, you can be sure that Dr Heath will perform a thorough scan and give you as much time and explanation as you need.

 

We give the scans different names depending on when we do them and glean different information from them depending on how far into your pregnancy you are. You may already have a clear idea of what you want and what to expect, but below is a very brief summary of the main types of scan to help you decide what is right for you. More information about each scan is available by following the links, but if you are still not sure, please do contact us and we will be very happy to advise you and make sure you get the most out of your experience at Beard Mill Clinic.

 

Viability Scan  – This is usually carried out between 6 and 11 weeks and allows you to see and hear the baby’s heart beat for the first time and monitor the baby’s early development. It is particularly helpful if you have pain or bleeding in the first few weeks or are very unsure of how pregnant you might be. To discover more about viability scans click here.

 

Nuchal Translucency Scan – This is a very detailed scan and blood test to assess the likelihood of common fetal abnormalities such as Down's Syndrome. For more information on nuchal translucency scan click here.

 

NIPT –This is the new non-invasive prenatal testing which allows you to screen for Down's syndrome with over 99% accuracy. For more information about NIPT please click here.

 

Anomaly Scan – This is a thorough scan performed between 19 and 23 weeks to check the structure of the baby. It can also reveal the sex if you wish to know. To discover more about anomaly scans click here.

 

Wellbeing Scan – This looks at the baby’s growth and checks that there is no sign that the baby is starting to struggle. It is usually carried out between 28 and 32 weeks, but can be done at other times if there are any concerns. For more information on our well-being scans please click here.
