Growth & Wellbeing Scan – Overview:

Our Digital Growth&Wellbeing™ scan is designed to obtain growth measurements and perform wellbeing checks on your baby after your initial NHS dating scan. This ultrasound scan can be performed between 14 weeks and 40 weeks gestation.

Complimentary gender evaluation is included if you are between 16 and 32 weeks along (if the baby’s position allows us to confirm the sex).

This growth and wellbeing scan has been specifically created for optimum safety during the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic. Scan time is limited to a maximum of 5 minutes, and all staff will be wearing an approved level of PPE for your protection. Your scan report and imagery will be sent to you digitally to support infection control measures.

Detailed Description

The Digital Growth&Wellbeing™ scan can be conducted between 14 and 40 weeks gestation (after your initial NHS appointment). This reassurance scan focuses on checking the development and wellbeing of your unborn baby.

During the scan, your fully-qualified obstetric sonographer will carry out growth measurements and weight calculations, establish placenta position and fluid volume, provide an audible heartbeat trace, and identify the position of your baby. All of this will be documented in the form of a Digital growthAssure™ Report, providing valuable information for you to share with your midwife.

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, possibly leading to an inconclusive evaluation.

What's included

  • Audible Heartbeat Trace
  • Growth Measurements & Weight
  • Placental Position & Fluid Volume
  • Position of Baby
  • Digital Pregnancy Report
  • Digital Imagery & AVI Video Clip on photocloud™
  • Complimentary Gender Evaluation (subject to baby's gestation age and position)

Terms & Conditions

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic, this growth and wellbeing ultrasound scan is subject to a number of special terms and conditions:
Referral Procedure to NHS
In the event that we identify matters of concern and determine that a further detailed diagnostic assessment is required, a referral to your NHS GP / midwife will be provided in accordance with our approved procedures. Referrals to the NHS will only be provided when there is justified concern.
Re-Scan Guarantee
This scan is excluded from our re-scan guarantee to reduce the chance of virus transmission from staff to client and vice versa.
Complimentary Gender Evaluation
This is subject to your unborn baby's gestation age and their position at the time of the scan. No additional time will be taken to encourage your baby into a cooperative position, and failure to achieve baby sexing does not constitute cause for rescan or refund.
Guest Policy
During the pandemic guests will not be permitted in the examination room, however a viewing screen will be made available for a maximum of one guest in an adjacent room.
Multiple Pregnancy
This scan is not available for multiple pregnancies (twins, triplets, etc.)
