We can perform Early Reassurance Scans – sometime called Early Pregnancy Scans – only after you have registered your pregnancy with your GP.
All Reassurance Scan appointments are completely private.
During your session the sonographer will use a technique appropriate to your declared/estimated stage of pregnancy. Details of the nature of the scan will be advised at the time of your booking, prior to the appointment.
Because the foetus is still small the earliest an early scan can be done is at 7 weeks, but they are frequently conducted at up to 11 weeks.
At this early stage it is usually possible via the ultrasound to:
– see if the foetus is in the right position
– identify if it’s a single baby or twins
– ascertain if the pregnancy looks “safe”
– detect a heart-beat
– give an approximate dating
While the operator is scanning you will be able to see the pictures of the tiny foetus on the big screen. She will show you as much as possible at this early stage and capture a number of still images. You will be offered souvenir pictures from the scan in the form of photos.
Our Reassurance service comprises:
The package fee is £60 payable in full at the time of booking.
Prior to the appointment, Baby It’s You! will calculate the gestation of the pregnancy based on information provided by the patient, specifically the start date of the last menstrual period and the monthly cycle length. Baby It’s You! will take the information provided by the patient at face value in good faith. If it transpires during the examination that the pregnancy is not at the stage indicated by the patient’s information and in fact that she is presenting at a gestation under 7 weeks, the Company may not be able to provide the full service nor to determine the status of the pregnancy. Baby It’s You! will not offer a free re-scan for patients who present earlier than the minimum of 7 weeks.
Baby It’s You! accepts payment in cash or card.
The quality of the visual result of the scan is dependent on the stage of pregnancy, the size and position of the baby, the volume of amniotic fluid and the amount of tissue (skin, muscle, etc) between the ultrasound probe and the foetus in the womb. A good image cannot always be obtained.
