The early scan will be able to detect a pregnancy and a baby's heartbeat; reduce anxiety and uncertainty at the early weeks of pregnancy. The early pregnancy scan also known as viability scan can provide the very much needed reassurance that the pregnancy is progressing normally and that it is not an ectopic. Unfortunately, early pregnancy scans are not routinely offered by the NHS and our expectant couples choose to have their early baby scan with us for peace of mind.

Reasons for having this early scan:

Vaginal bleeding/Spotting

Pelvic pain

History of miscarriages

History of ectopic pregnancy

General reassurance

Rule out ectopic pregnancy and check the pregnancy sac is located within the uterus

Confirm viability of pregnancy

Check there is a baby's heartbeat present

Calculate the gestation of pregnancy

Determine whether it is a singleton or multiple pregnancy

 

The purpose of this early pregnancy scan is:

  • To ensure the viability of the pregnancy by detecting a clear baby's heart beat.
  • Ensure that the pregnancy is located within the uterus (not an ectopic pregnancy).
  • Detect whether it is a single or multiple pregnancy.
  • General reassurance.

What is included with this early baby scan:

Ultrasound report with a 2D b/w picture

Preparation for this early pregnancy scan

We need your bladder full for this early pregnancy ultrasound scan so you need to drink 1lt (2 pints) of water an hour before your scan.

What should I expect during the early pregnancy scan?

Before the early scan, our sonographer will explain the examination procedure and discuss the reasons for having the scan.

You will lie on the examination couch, asked to expose your lower abdomen and a small amount of gel will be placed on the skin. The ultrasound probe will be moved in different directions to obtain the best possible images.

Depending on the image quality of the transabdominal scan (TS), an internal or transvaginal scan (TV) might be necessary. Our sonographer will explain the reasons and the procedure and will get your consent.

About Pregnancy Scans

Pregnancy or baby ultrasound scans are a very common part of prenatal care. This is because ultrasound scans are completely painless, have no known side effects on mothers or babies, and can be carried out at any stage of pregnancy: in early pregnancy,  ultrasound scanning is being used to confirm the baby's heartbeat and exclude any early stage abnormalities; later in pregnancy ultrasound scanning is being used to evaluate the baby's overall health.
