Detailed Description

The Growth&Wellbeing™ scan can be conducted between 16 and 40 weeks gestation (after your initial NHS appointment). This reassurance scan focuses on checking the development and wellbeing of your unborn baby.

We can also check umbilical cord Doppler flow from 33 weeks, making Growth&Wellbeing™ a good choice if you’re looking for a presentation scan in the final weeks of your pregnancy.

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 (visual only if you’re under 16 weeks) and identify the position of your baby. All of this will be documented in the form of a Digital Foetal Assessment 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.
Digital Foetal Assessment Report
Our growth and wellbeing scan includes a Digital Foetal Assessment Report, which confirms:
  • HC, AC & FL Measurements
  • Gestation Age
  • Audible Heartbeat
  • Observed Movement
  • Placental Site
  • Amniotic Fluid Volume
  • Position of Baby
Scan Time & Baby’s Safety
Your Growth&Wellbeing™ scan will last for approximately 5-7 minutes. As an ethical and regulated provider we comply with the British Medical Ultrasound Society (BMUS) guidelines, only scanning for as long as it necessitates to achieve the required diagnostic evaluation. Whilst we appreciate longer scan times promoted by other scan companies may seem appealing, the safety and wellbeing of your baby is paramount and should not be compromised.
Referral Procedure to NHS
In the event we identify matters of concern and it is considered 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 NHS will only be provided when there is justified concern.
Re-Scan Guarantee
The position of your baby may occasionally be such that measurements are difficult to take. If this happens to you, our sonographer may ask you to take a gentle stroll so as to get the baby moving; in the unlikely event that this does not work, one complimentary re-scan visit will be offered (subject to terms and conditions).
Multiple Pregnancy Surcharge
A multiple pregnancy will require further scan time in order to conduct the detailed assessment of multiple foetus; as such we charge an additional £50 per foetus to account for the extended appointment time allocated
Sonographers & Regulation
All ultrasound scans are performed by qualified and experienced obstetric Sonographers registered with the Health Professions Council (HPC).
Guest Policy
Due to the sensitive nature of baby scans and potential unexpected findings, we strongly encourage you to consider the purpose of your chosen scan and the appropriate nature of guests in attendance in particular children attending the examination room. We have re-designed our clinic to provide a purpose built private viewing room to accommodate additional guests from which we can appropriately control what is displayed and observed. Our guest policy now permits up to four guests to accompany you into the examination room including ‘where appropriate’ closely supervised children; with a further five additional guests including children (supervised under the age of 16 years) permitted into the private viewing room where they can view your scan on a large screen with audio. (Max 9 Guests across two rooms).
The diagnostic evaluations obtained whilst conducting our Growth&Wellbeing™ scan provides valuable insight into baby’s continual development and wellbeing, designed to compliment but not replace your NHS Dating/NT (12-14wks) and Anomaly scans (20 wks). Whilst each scan type has a specific purpose, gestation age criteria and defined reporting protocols, our qualified Sonographers have an ethical obligation to highlight, report and refer matters of concern which may be outside the scope/protocols of the performed scan. In some circumstances further NHS evaluation and screening may be required; however the gestation age criteria for such evaluations will be determined by your NHS Antenatal provider.
Pre-Scan Preparation
Arrive with a full bladder as this will assist with magnification of scan imagery. Please do NOT empty bladder prior to scan. Sugar in the blood stream will assist with baby’s movement. Remove any belly piercings in advance of your appointment. We will need to expose your abdomen during the scan, as such please consider wearing a two piece outfit in order that we may respect your dignity.
