Measurements of the head, tummy and femur (from 24 weeks onwards)
Estimated fetal weight (from 24 weeks onwards)
The volume of amniotic fluid surrounding the baby
Doppler blood flow in the umbilical cord to assess the function of the placenta (from 24 weeks onwards)

What if I need to cancel my aapointment?
We do take a non-refundable deposit of £25 upon booking. In the case that you need to amend your booking, please call our team on 01753 358123 and we would be happy to assist you in changing your appointment.
Can I bring my friends, family and children to the scan?
We usually welcome family and friends to appointments, and allow up to four extra people (excluding yourself and your partner) as it’s a lovely experience to share; however, please see our Coronavirus Preventative Measures on the main website for further up to date information on this.
What do I need to do before my scan?
It’s useful to come for a full bladder so that we can get the best possible view of your baby. Please otherwise eat and drink as normal. It can also be a good idea to bring a chocolate bar or something sugary to have if baby is not in a favourable position on the day!
Will you tell me if you find a problem?
Ultimately, the wellbeing of yourself and your baby is our highest priority.
For this reason, if any problem were identified during your scan, you would be informed by your Sonographer so that you can be checked at your next midwife/ hospital appointment. With your permission, we would contact your midwife/ GP on your behalf, to refer you on to them.

What our patients say...
Lovely and friendly people, very clean. Massive screen on the wall for you to see the baby. The best Ultrasound Clinic I’ve been to.
We had a really lovely experience here, it’s the first private scan we had and was well worth the money.
Eisher was so friendly and kind, made us both feel really comfortable. My partner felt a lot more involved seeing the larger screen.
I would highly recommend, always great to support small local businesses as well!
Easy to book, answered all questions we had just an amazing experience start to finish. Took our little girl in to me her new brother or sister and was welcomed by the staff which I know some places don’t allow young children in so this was a brilliant bonus. Would highly recommend to anyone.
