The Date&Wellbeing™ scan is an early pregnancy scan specifically designed for expectant parents who are seeking reassurance after attending their first NHS scan. During the scan your fully-qualified obstetric Sonographer will measure baby's head (HC - head circumference) and Leg (FL - femur length) to establish growth development, calculating gestation age and EDD, along with wellbeing observations of Visual Heartbeat, Visual Movement, Placental Site, Amniotic Fluid Volume & Position of Baby.

Your scan will be conducted using an abdominal ultrasound probe (external on the abdomen), and it is important to recognise that imagery obtained is derived from the reflection of sound waves passing through your abdomen creating the visual image. The level of diagnostic evaluation and visibility achievable can differ greatly between clients – especially in cases of a high BMI, which can result in poor image resolution.
