Early reassurance scans are a popular service accessed by expectant mothers in Hull. The NHS provides routine scans at 12 and 20 weeks for women experiencing healthy pregnancies.
It’s imperative that you still attend your routine scans, as they are diagnostic and look for specific anomalies at certain stages of gestation that if left undetected, could seriously affect the health of both mum and baby.
Early reassurance scans in private ultrasound clinics like Hey Baby 4D in Hull provide expectant parents with the opportunity to check on their pregnancy 6 weeks earlier than these routine scans.
At Hey Baby 4D, our early reassurance scans will always begin abdominally (known as transabdominally), however it may be necessary to offer an internal scan (known as a transvaginal scan) if we are unable to see the fetus clearly. Many factors can cause this, including (but not limited to) the pregnancy being earlier than initially expected, the hydration of Mum or Mum’s BMI. For this reason, we highly recommend staying well hydrated in the 24 hours prior to your scan.
Hey Baby 4D only hires qualified and registered Sonographers.
As well as our early reassurance scan, you may be interested in other ultrasound scans or NIPT service.
