What are Pregnancy Ultrasounds?

Pregnancy ultrasounds are key diagnostic tools used throughout pregnancy to provide images of the developing baby, helping to assess its health, growth, and development. These scans are essential for early detection of potential issues and for supporting healthy pregnancy outcomes.

Types of Pregnancy Ultrasounds Offered

Nuchal Translucency Scan Performed between 11 and 13 weeks of pregnancy, this scan measures the fluid at the back of the baby’s neck to assess the risk of chromosomal abnormalities such as Down syndrome.

Anomaly Scan Typically carried out between 18 and 21 weeks, the anomaly scan checks the baby’s organs and physical features for any abnormalities and confirms the position of the placenta.

Cervical Length Measurement Scan This scan is used to measure the length of the cervix and is important for assessing the risk of premature birth, especially in women who have a history of early labour.

Fetal Growth Scan Conducted in the third trimester, this scan evaluates the baby’s growth and the amount of amniotic fluid, ensuring the baby is developing at a healthy rate.

Viability Scan Also known as an early pregnancy scan, this is performed at 6 to 10 weeks to confirm a pregnancy, check the heartbeat, and calculate the due date.
