Baby wellbeing and presentation scan (36-42 weeks)

 

Purpose

 

The baby and wellbeing scans after 36 weeks are there for families who want to keep an eye on their baby’s development, check their baby’s wellbeing, assess the fluid around the baby and assess the placenta in terms of structure and blood flow.  An important benefit of these scans is that as you near your due date we assess the fetal position and whether the baby is breech in presentation (feet first).  The post-date period (after 40 weeks and you are overdue) can be a time of concern and we are here to reassure you should you require it.

 

Additional benefits

 

  • the ultrasound scan is very accurate in assessing your baby’s weight (estimated fetal weight – EFW) rather than relying on your midwife to estimate the weight by touch alone
  • check the blood flow between the baby and the placenta (a Doppler scan)
  • assess the level of amniotic fluid around your baby
  • provide re-assurance that baby is developing well

 

Baby wellbeing and presentation scan

 

  • 20 minute appointment
  • 4 thermal black and white images
  • detailed sonographer’s report on your baby’s development, printed to take away with you
  • 1 x glossy 2D photograph

 

Cost: £80

 

We kindly ask you to pay a 30% deposit on booking your appointment over the phone.  This will be deducted from your overall balance to be paid on arrival to St Joseph’s Hospital reception.
