Reassurance Ultrasound Scan
The reassurance baby scan can provide the very much needed reassurance that the pregnancy is progressing normally and therefore reduce parental anxiety. Unfortunately reassurance ultrasound scans are not routinely offered in the NHS and our expectant couples choose to have their early baby scan with us for peace of mind.
Reasons for having this reassurance ultrasound scan include:
- Baby movement not felt.
- Pain or bleeding.
- Confirm healthy foetus
What is the purpose of the reassurance baby scan:
- To confirm that pregnancy is progressing well.
- Evaluate placenta position.
- General pregnancy reassurance
What is included with this reassurance scan?
The scan incudes: Ultrasound report with a 2D b/w picture
Preparation for this reassurance scan
We need your bladder full for this pregnancy scan so you need to drink 1lt (2 pints) of water an hour before your scan.
What should I expect during the reassurance scan?
Before the reassurance scan, our sonographer will explain the ultrasound 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 ultrasound scan (TV) might be necessary. Our sonographer will explain the reasons and the procedure and will get your consent.
The Pregnancy Ultrasound Scan
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 is being used to confirm the baby's heartbeat and exclude any early stage abnormalities; later in pregnancy ultrasound is being used to evaluate the baby's oveall health.
Price of the Reassurance Scan: £ 129 (Twin pregnancy: £170)
