Growth Scan

Why have a growth scan?

Sometimes the wait from seeing your baby at the half way stage at the 20 week scan to it being in your arms can be a long time! This scan does not need a referral from a healthcare professional so can be performed whenever you feel the need for additional reassurance of how well your baby is growing and what it is up to in there.

If a concern has been raised about reduced fetal movements, slow fundal growth height, or even increased fundal growth height we can give that visual reassurance that your baby is doing beautifully at a timescale that suits you.
What we do..

We have a good look at your little one and discuss everything as we move around your baby. For the growth assessment we measure the head, tummy and thigh to get an estimated weight and compare this in relation to the due date which will demonstrate where your baby is within the growth range. We assess the placenta and also the position of your baby to the placenta, so if reduced movements are a concern, we can show you where you will expect to feel your baby move. The fluid is assessed either visually or measured to ensure it is within the normal range.

We also see what your baby is up to in there and check its general behaviour – pictures are taken where possible (dependant on position and gestation) and if we can we will also have a look in 4D.

As with all our scans you are given the opportunity to ask questions throughout the scan.

After the scan..

We will discuss everything that we have seen throughout the scan and create a report with our findings for you to take away.

If any problems are found, these will be discussed with you and where possible/known the implications will also be discussed. A referral will be made for you to your local midwife, GP or local hospital/antenatal clinic and appropriate follow up will be arranged.

4D Scan

Why have a 4D scan?

An amazing opportunity to see what your little one gets up to in the womb! This unique bonding experience allows you to see your baby smile, yawn and even see if it has little fat cheeks!

As with all our scans ensuring your baby’s wellbeing is our priority and we always talk you through everything that we see.

The best time to perform a 4D scan is between 26-32 weeks gestation due to the size of your baby and the amount of amniotic fluid present.

After 32 weeks the amniotic fluid naturally starts to reduce which can affect the images we get of your baby due to its position and often unwillingness to move! If you are outside of the suggested range, we will try our hardest to achieve the best possible images but this is not always possible.

What we do..

With our 4D scans we record the scan on DVD, take both 2D and 3D pictures which are saved onto a memory stick, black and white pictures for you to take away, we also take measurements to ensure you baby is growing well. We spend time looking around your baby and seeing what it is up to. If you would like the gender to remain a secret that is no problem at all, if you do already know we can always double check for you!

For the growth assessment we measure the head, tummy and thigh to get an estimated weight and compare this in relation to the due date which will demonstrate where your baby is within the growth range. We also assess the placental position and amniotic fluid.

During the scan the ideal position for your baby is to be laying on its back, from previous scans I am sure you have experienced a naughty baby that doesn’t want to help. If this happens we will try a variety of things to get your baby moving. If despite our best efforts your little bean is far too comfortable and won’t move we will book a further scan free of charge.

As with all our scans you are given the opportunity to ask questions throughout the scan.

After the scan..

We will discuss everything that we have seen throughout the scan and complete a wellbeing checklist along with your DVD, memory stick and pictures we have taken throughout the scan.

We don’t have a maximum number of pictures we take, all dependant on how helpful your little one is.

If any problems are found, these will be discussed with you and where possible/known the implications will also be discussed. A referral will be made for you to your local midwife, GP or local hospital/antenatal clinic and appropriate follow up will be arranged.

Touching my nose!

“Can't recommend Lindsey enough, I've been to other places for scans which don't compare to the treatment at well women.
My pregnancy wasn't easy yet seeing Lindsey on the few occasions I did she was so friendly, caring an patient with the endless questions I had.
With other places I've been to before it's been very rushed where as with Lindsey it was very relaxed, looked at everything, told me the sex very early on an was happy to put my mind at ease with any worries I had (an there were lots) also the pictures were amazing!!
 Lindsey will always be special to me an baby Imani”

“Highly recommend Lindsay. I went for reassurance scans at 13 weeks and 18 weeks due to some issue in early pregnancy. It was a very friendly but also very informative service where I was shown and talked through different things that they may not have time to discuss in your normal hospital scans. I would definitely recommend Lindsay to anyone wanting to have extra scans.”

Group B strep screening

Why have Group B Strep screening?

Group B Streptococcus is the most common cause of life threatening infections in newborn babies in the UK. GBS is a common bacteria that can be found on our bodies which often doesn’t cause any harm. Approximately one in five pregnant women in the UK carries GBS in their vagina or digestive tract, during labour and birth many babies can come into contact with GBS and become colonised by the bacteria.

Most babies are unaffected however a small number can become infected during labour and birth. Rarely, GBS infections can cause serious complications that can become life threatening.

Most GBS infections can be prevented by giving antibiotics intravenously (through a vein) at the start of labour to all women where GBS has been detected during their current pregnancy.

Without prophylactic antibiotics around 1 in 1000 babies in the UK would develop a GBS infection (approx 700 babies a year).

What we do..

The test is performed from 35 weeks gestation (ideally between 35-37 weeks) by taking two swabs, a low vaginal and rectal swab. The swabs are then sent to our designated lab for testing, who are also the designated lab for the Group B Strep support group.

After the test..

We receive the results electronically and contact you by phone with them usually 3-5 working days after the swabs have been taken. You will also receive a hard copy of the report in the post.

The results will come back as positive or negative, if negative no further follow up required and the report can go in your maternity notes. If your result is positive the lab report should be shown and discussed with your midwife or obstetrician and placed within your maternity notes.
UK guidelines recommend that when GBS is isolated in pregnancy intravenous antibiotics should be offered in labour which is highly effective in stopping GBS infections from developing in newborn babies.

Presentation scan

Why have a presentation scan?

At times trying to clearly identify which way round your baby is can be difficult! You think it is one way, your midwife thinks it’s another but no one is quite convinced – we can help and see for certain whether your baby is head down (cephalic) or bottom down (breech). This scan does not need a referral from a healthcare professional so can be performed whenever you feel the need for additional reassurance of how well your baby is growing and which way around it is.

What we do..

We have a good look at your little one and discuss everything as we move around your baby. For the growth assessment we measure the head, tummy and thigh to get an estimated weight and compare this in relation to the due date which will demonstrate where your baby is within the growth range. The fluid is assessed either visually or measured to ensure it is within the normal range. We will of course check the position of your baby for that final reassurance.

We also see what your baby is up to in there and check its general behaviour – pictures are taken where possible (dependant on position and gestation) and if we can we will also have a look in 4D.

As with all our scans you are given the opportunity to ask questions throughout the scan.

After the scan..

We will discuss everything that we have seen throughout the scan and create a report with our findings for you to take away. If your baby is not in the cephalic position we will advise you to contact your midwife for follow up.

If any problems are found, these will be discussed with you and where possible/known the implications will also be discussed. A referral will be made for you to your local midwife, GP or local hospital/antenatal clinic and appropriate follow up will be arranged.

Head or bottom first?

“Lyndsey done quite a few scans when I was pregnant with my little girl.. She was amazing we also found out she had bilateral talipes and when Lyndsey noticed her feet she was amazing and explained things a lot better than the hospital did. I now wouldn't go anywhere else if I ever have any more children ! Xx”
