What can we do for you…


Following the latest government announcement on Monday 4th January 2021 you must only attend an appointment for medical reasons, this can be for reassurance and wellbeing.

We are registered with the CQC for diagnostic and screening as a medical service provider.

As all of our scans are underpinned by medical ultrasound we hope that by resuming our professional ultrasound service we can offer some peace of mind to pregnant ladies during these testing and anxious times for those ladies who want to self refer for an elective obstetric ultrasound scan.

Before the stork Ltd only employ fully qualified medically trained diagnostic sonographers with many years NHS experience to perform your scans. Therefore, in line with standard practise, if any concerns are noted during your scan, a written report can be provided and relevant referral to your NHS provider

Current RCOG COVID-19 guidance advises that there are marginally higher risks associated with exposure to COVID-19 during the 3rd trimester of pregnancy (after 28 weeks) therefore please do be aware of this before deciding on your current meed to book a scan.

Your health and safety and that of our staff is our primary focus. We have implemented and are operating under our strict COVID-19 safety precautions to help ensure the safety of you and our staff. These will be explained further upon booking and will be conditional to you receiving our service.

Please be patient with our service as not all babies do what we would like them to do, our normal service would be to walk ladies until baby moves to a more favourable position but due to the current safety guidelines we are limited on how long we can persist in scanning whiles also limited to how many clients we can safely have within the studio.

Despite this we will still try and get you the best images we can.

One other adult can accompany you to your appointment however we are advising you to attend alone where possible. unfortunately no children are allowed at this current time.

Bookings can only be made by telephone as we need to carry out a risk assessment prior to you attending for any scan.

We thank you for your continued support and patience.

About Us

Welcome to Before the Stork a professional ultrasound company established in 2005 that provides a range of pregnancy scans including 3D 4D baby scans in Liverpool and the surrounding areas of the North West, including Southport, Ormskirk, St Helens, Wigan, Widnes, Halton and Manchester.

We offer parents and their loved ones the chance to meet their unborn baby for the first time without the distractions and time restrictions of a busy antenatal clinic. Ultrasound scans are believed to enable families to form an early affectionate bond with their child and provide reassuring images of their unborn child in the mother’s womb. Children are more than welcome to come along with you enabling them to share in your experience and allow them to meet their new sibling or family member too.

Take this fantastic opportunity and capture this special moment with precious images and video footage of your new baby before he or she is born. Capture your new baby stretching, yawning or even sucking its thumb.

Mothers to be and their partners should be reassured that their unborn child is in the safest of hands and that they will take home quality movies and photos for you and all your family to cherish now and forever.

We offer a range of scan packages to suit your needs. We have an Early Reassurance and Dating package, which can help to provide reassurance to any anxious parents in the first stages of pregnancy. Our 3D 4D/HD Live baby scans come with lots of different options for parents, including Early Gender Scan from only 15 weeks to full bonding scan packages. We also offer a simple 2D/Growth option for those wanting to spend time watching their baby but do not necessarily want a 3D/4D option.
