At Preview baby our Early Scan is carried out by qualified sonographers. The purpose of the scan is to confirm a live pregnancy, site of pregnancy, gestational age & confirmation of singular or multiples by using the latest & most up to date technology. Many new parents seek reassurance by viewing their baby, 3D & 4D scans (after 12 weeks in pregnancy) allow you to see your baby in a way that you never thought possible.
All scans are performed by a qualified Sonographer with obstetric ultrasound scanning experience.
From 11 weeks, your baby’s early anatomy can be checked and the gestational age and due date confirmed.
Please note the accuracy of ultrasound dating is assumed to be +/- 7 days.
4D HD Live Viewing
This scan includes viewing your baby in live 4D HD Live from available views and 2 thermal b/w 3D scan prints at no extra charge. Please note that 4D HD Live viewing is a free option and if your baby’s position is not favourable for aesthetics on the day, we cannot offer a free rescan for this reason.
Before Your Scan
When you book your appointment we will confirm some details, like how far along your pregnancy you are. Depending on your gestation and scan type it may be necessary to attend with a full bladder. Please aim to arrive 5 minutes prior to your scheduled appointment so that we can get your paperwork out of the way, and maximise the time you can spend with your baby.
What Your Visit Involves
Once you are in the scanning room you will be able to see exactly what our sonographer is viewing as we have installed a large wall mounted screen for you and your family to watch your baby in real time. Once we have obtained images of your baby you will then be able to choose which images you would like to take home with you.
Speak to us on the day before your scan starts if you would like additional prints.
