As a mother myself I know how long pregnancy actually feels ... about a million years. The worst bit is between seeing that pink line flash up on that little stick and actually seeing your little bean on the screen at the hospital. Well here at Your Baby Scan we give you the opportunity to come along and see your little bean from as early as 7 weeks. What a great way to tell your nearest and dearest that you're pregnant and to begin to watch your baby grow.
When coming for an Early Reassurance Scan, your scan will take place in 2D which is the same as the black and white scan you get at your 12 weeks appointment at the hospital. This is not only the clearest way to see your new baby which is measuring around the size of a blueberry, but can provide you with reassurance when the early stages of pregnancy have you worried. It is widely recognised that high levels of stress during early pregnancy may lead to an increased risk of miscarriage. It's for this reason that our scan centres are open at weekends, when your local NHS Hospital Early Pregnancy Assessment Unit (EPAU) or BEP clinic may be closed.
All of our sonographers are fully trained and qualified with experience working at hospitals, so they know what they're doing, and understand the worry that you may be going through. They will take a look around baby to make sure that baby is developing and has a heartbeat.

Our Early Reassurance Scans are available from 7 weeks onwards. As a result, these scans are performed externally and do not use an internal/trans-vaginal probe. In some cases we may not be able to see clearly, so we may ask you to come back again. In addition, to Early Reassurance Scans, we offer Pregnancy Viability Scans. These are internal scans performed from 5 weeks. You may be offered the opportunity to have a Pregnancy Viability Scan if this would be suitable.
Our Wellbeing+ service offers additional reassurance during early pregnancy. Our sonographers will complete a head-to-toe check that your developing baby growing as we would expect including full measurements of baby. They will measure baby's heartbeat and also check the amount of fluid around the baby to make sure that these are in-line with how far into pregnancy your baby is, also known as the Gestational Age (GA).
Please note: At Your Baby Scan, we use an external, abdominal probe for all of our scans. In some instances you may think that you are 7 weeks (based on your last period) but are only 5 weeks. It can sometimes be difficult to see the fetus at less than 7 weeks. If during the scan you don't see your baby because it is less than 7 weeks old, we will offer you a rescan 1 - 2 weeks later at no extra charge.
Come with a full bladder, we suggest you drink around 2 litres of clear fluid before you come to visit us for your scan (Don't worry we have toilets) and bring your loved ones with you.
Unfortunately in some cases this does happen. We will write a report and send you to your GP/Midwife or in some cases your local hospital.
As we are a non diagnostic centre we don't actively look for abnormalities but if we do spot something unusual then we will write a report and send you to your GP/Midwife. We do not replace your NHS scans/appointments so strongly recommend you keep up to date with these.
At Your Baby Scan, not only do we guarantee that you receive first class service, and the best value for money, but if you can find better value for money elsewhere... show us and we'll not only match the price, but we'll give you the difference back too! Now that's a guarantee!
