    About  Pregnancy Scans


    An obstetric scan is the same as a ‘normal’ scan but is being used to evaluate the overall health of your unborn baby instead of looking at other organs such as gallbladder for gallstones  or  kidney for kidney stones. So in pregnancy ultrasounds are being used to visualise the unborn baby, the placenta, the uterus and cervix and your ovaries.
    Pregnancy ultrasound scans or prenatal ultrasounds are very common and being carried in any stage of the pregnancy.

     

    When Is an Ultrasound Performed During Pregnancy?


    You will normally offered two diagnostic ultrasound scans during your pregnancy from the NHS. The first pregnancy  scan is at 12 weeks of gestation and called a dating scan. The second pregnancy scan is at 20 weeks of pregnany and called an anomaly scan.
    Most of the expectant mothers, especially the ones with previous complications such as miscarriage they do not believe that 2 ultrasound scans during pregnancy are enough  and this is the reason they choose to have a private pregnancy scan in London with us.

     

    3D and 4D Ultrasound

    We follow the NICE, RCOG and BMUS guidlines recommended keep the exposure to the baby as low as reasonably possible (ALARA principle) and therefore we only perform 2d diagnostic ultrasound scans.
