When can you have a private baby scan?

In our private ultrasound clinic, we offer early pregnancy scans for as early as 5 weeks gestation although we recommend having your first baby scan from 7 weeks unless you are concerned about miscarriage or an ectopic.

Are private ultrasounds safe?

Ultrasound scanning is generally safe when used appropriately and by trained professionals as ultrasound energy has the potential of causing biological effects in the body.
Ultrasound waves can heat the tissues slightly and can also produce small pockets of gas in body fluids or tissues called cavitations. Ultrasound can cause harm if exposure is prolonged, in particular on sensitive organs, such as the baby’s eyes and brain.

Private baby ultrasound?

A pregnancy ultrasound is a non-invasive diagnostic technique that uses high-frequency sound waves to create images of the baby organs and structures inside your abdomen. As the sound waves travel through your abdomen, they reflect off baby tissues, sending information to a computer that interprets the waves and produces a baby image on the screen.

Your private antenatal ultrasound may be performed transabdominally or transvaginally.  On a transabdominal ultrasound the device that emits sound waves, called the transducer, is moved across the abdomen, sending the waves down toward the uterus and the baby.

A transvaginal ultrasound uses a long, narrow transducer that’s placed inside the vagina. This method produces a clearer image of your baby because it’s closer to the reproductive organs.

How much does it cost for a prenatal scan in London?

The cost of a private baby scan in London varies from clinic to clinic. The price variation depends on the location of the ultrasound clinic in London and the length of scan time.

The prices in our London ultrasound clinic are reasonable and affordable. See all our London ultrasound scan prices.

How is ultrasound used in obstetrics?

Ultrasound is safe to use during pregnancy to evaluate the baby’s growth and development because it relies on sound waves rather than radiation. While ultrasounds are usually done during the first and second trimester, they can be performed at any time during pregnancy.

First trimester ultrasounds aren’t routine, but they may verify a pregnancy, determine the location of the pregnancy, and be used to estimate the due date. Every pregnant woman receives a second-trimester ultrasound to establish the size and position of the baby.

Your baby’s sex can often be identified when the second-trimester ultrasound is done after 20 weeks because the external genitalia are visible. In some cases, however, the image may not be clear or the baby’s position may block the view.

What is 3D and 4D ultrasound?

3D ultrasound imaging, allows you to see the facial structure and anatomy as a static three-dimensional image of the baby in the womb. The 4D ultrasound, allows you to see real-time images, such as movement, sometimes you can see the baby yawning or sucking his/her thumb. At International Ultrasound Services, we follow the NICE, RCOG and BMUS safety guidelines that recommend keeping the exposure to the baby as low as reasonably possible (ALARA principle) and therefore we only perform 2d diagnostic baby ultrasound scans.
