What are the benefits of private pregnancy scans?

Scans are Amazing!!!! From the traditional 2D black and white scan to the latest 3D/4D technology, seeing your baby developing and changing brings so much joy. Even after years of scanning babies it never fails to amaze, how much love and connection a scan can bring to excited parents to be.

For uneventful pregnancies mothers will be offered 2 scans in the NHS, one at 12-14 weeks to date your pregnancy and another around 20 weeks to check the anatomy. During both of these scans essential checks and screening is carried out, these scans help to monitor the health of your baby and ensure that he or she is developing normally. After this no further scans are offered which leaves parents with a long 20 week wait to see their baby again.

Private scans should never replace your hospital scans, as these are essential to check the health and wellbeing of your baby. Often the all important baby snap may be overlooked in the clinical setting or minimal time will be spent capturing your baby’s pictures. This can sometimes lead to women feeling let down by their NHS scan. During your pregnancy the wellbeing of your baby is paramount however being able to clearly view your babies face allowing you to imagine what your child might look like is also part of the magic of ultrasound.
