Available to women from 16 years of age. Private ultrasound presentation scan. We recommend that you show your scan results to your usual healthcare professional whose contact details we take at the time of booking. All scans are performed by a qualified Sonographer with diagnostic obstetric scanning experience.
Verification of fetal presentation and placental site from 35 weeks to term, measurements of the baby estimating the fetal weight (EFW). Demonstration of placental site and, if there is a concern regarding Vasa Praevia**, a colour doppler scan can be performed internally.
*Note: Optional sexing of your baby is not always possible at this late stage, but if your baby’s position is favourable and you would like to know, we will do this at no extra charge.
**Please note we cannot offer the Vasa Praevia screening in Belfast due to local guideline restrictions.
