What is a Reassurance or a Wellbeing scan?
As the pregnancy progresses, there will be times when the mothers-to-be need that extra reassurance and confirmation that everything is as should be.
Whether there are concerns or pains, or perhaps bleeding or a feeling that something might not be as it should, Wellbeing scan can quickly shed the light on how the baby is doing, whether it has optimal development environment and whether there are any reasons for concerns or further action.
Baby will be thoroughly scanned from head to toe and measurements will be taken to ensure that it is growing at an appropriate pace. Blood flow from mother to the baby will also be measured in case of any doubt.
We will also examine the mother’s uterus (womb) and placental position.
How is the Anatomy scan performed?
This is a trans-abdomenal scan, with an ultrasound probe gently gliding over the abdomen.
