Important Information regarding COVID-19 - Please read X

Updated 01/06/2022

We wanted to update you about our plans to continue to support you during this unsure time.  We have a link to the RCOG (Royal College of Obstetrics and Gynaecology) who give regularly updated guidance for Covid-19 and pregnancy.

The following link also provides with you with information about the Covid Vaccine in pregnancy;

We will no longer be requiring the wearing of masks in our clinics, however if you would like to wear a mask and would also like us to wear a mask just let us know on arrival.

The number of people that can attend the scan is 4 adults including the person being scanned.

On arrival please use the hand sanitiser or bathroom to wash your hands.

At the end of each scan you will not need to wait around and can leave directly from the scanning room which again reduces time with anyone else waiting in reception. The scanning room is then cleaned before the next patient arrives. Our staff are maintaining a stringent hand washing policy to reduce the risk of transmission.

In short we will still take every measure to keep you, your family and our families safe.

Keep well and you know where we are if you need anything.

Reassurance and Gender scans

Why have a reassurance scan?

The wait between your dating and anomaly scan can seem so long! From 16 weeks you (for the most part) feel entirely normal again, don’t necessarily feel pregnant and to the outside world you don’t look pregnant – so what is going on in there…… Or if you just cannot wait to find out the gender then we can help with that too.

What we do…

We measure the head, tummy and thigh to get an estimated weight and see how well your baby is growing in relation to your due date. Have a general assessment of your baby, check the movements, placenta and fluid (if the gender is obvious during the scan we will tell you).

We can determine your baby’s gender with very high accuracy, we take our time and look in a number of different views to clearly see little girl’s bits or little boy’s, it’s that simple! If your baby is being decidedly shy (or awkward) or we are not convinced ourselves then we will re-book you free of charge – we want to be certain!)

If you don’t want to know the gender we can keep that secret as well that’s no problem at all.

As an addition to the scan, we also try to have a glimpse at your little one in 4D and take pictures for you both in 2D and 3D if your baby allows (we don’t have a maximum number of pictures we take, depends on how well your little one poses!). Sometimes your baby may be in a position where we cannot see it’s face in 3D/4D and we won’t be able to take pictures – but we will try!)

After the scan…

We will discuss everything that we have seen throughout the scan and complete a report with our findings, along with the pictures we have taken throughout the scan.
If we find anything of concern during the scan we discuss this with you giving you plenty of time to ask questions. We create a report and contact your local maternity hospital to arrange follow up for you.
