Available from 28 weeks of pregnancy to term
- Measurements of your baby’s head, abdomen and thigh bone are taken to calculate the estimated weight of your baby compared to your due date to help determine that the growth of your baby is within normal range
- Placenta site will be checked if possible
- The amount of amniotic fluid around your baby and umbilical Doppler will be checked
- Sexing of the baby or confirmation of sex if requested
Includes 2 2D glossy photographs (please note that later on in your pregnancy these images may not be possible)
All scans will be performed by fully qualified NHS trained sonographers
As this is an abdominal scan it may be helpful to wear clothing that allows the sonographer easy access to your tummy region.
What happens if an unexpected problem is detected?
Whilst we do not wish to worry you about your pregnancy, sometimes there may be a problem detected that is completely unexpected. It is important for you to understand that if the sonographer believes there is a problem he/she has a ‘duty of care’ to discuss these findings with and provide you with as much information as he/she reasonably can.
If necessary and with your permission, they may contact your local hospitals maternity unit in case a medical follow-up can be made. He/she may also write a letter explaining his/her concerns.
Occasionally the sonographer may require s second opinion. This does not necessarily mean that there is something wrong; many scan findings just need a ‘second look’ for reassurance. The sonographer will inform you of any such uncertain findings and discuss what your options are.

Before the Stork do not offer an on-line booking service. We have been providing private scans since 2005 and believe you may benefit more from our vast experience and knowledge. We feel it is important for us to reach out to you before booking and therefore only arrange appointments via telephone. This allows you the opportunity to ask any questions and tell us any important information that you feel we should know about your pregnancy prior to your scan. Likewise, it allows us the opportunity to offer you our knowledge and expertise in advising you when the best time to book your scan might be and offer the most suitable scan for you.
We are however, more than happy to also respond to any questions /queries via email or direct message on any of our social media platforms.
We believe that this personal touch in sharing our knowledge is shown in the quality of the images that we consistently produce. Plus, it gives you a chance to get to know us or ask for a specific sonographer to perform your scan, that’s if you have a favourite of course!
