Growth of baby scan package (24-36 weeks)

 

Purpose

 

The growth of baby scans after 24 weeks are there for families who want to keep an eye on their baby’s development, wellbeing, assess the level of amniotic fluid (fluid around your baby) and also check the placenta.


After the anomaly scan at 20-24 weeks no more routine ultrasound scans are provided in the NHS environment.  The growth of baby scan allows you to check-in with your baby periodically at your convenience.  These scans are also a great opportunity to physically see your little baby growing, and a lot can change in a few weeks!


These scans are performed as either a one scan, two scan (24 weeks and 32 weeks) or a four scan package (24 weeks, 28 weeks, 32 weeks and 36 weeks).


Within this 20 minute scan appointment, a qualified and experienced Sonographer will check on your baby's development and well-being.   You will be encouraged to ask any questions you may have to get the most out of your experience.


Size measurements will be taken of your baby and compared with expected measurements for their age to check your baby’s growth is on track.  These measurements are more accurate than measurements taken of your ‘bump’ by your midwife and can give an idea of expected weight of your baby.


The position of your baby can be assessed which is very useful to know as it is getting close to your baby’s due date.  It is important to know sooner rather than later if your baby is a breech (feet first) presentation.


The placental position is determined, blood flow assessed and a detailed report is provided for you to take home which can provide your midwife and consultant with useful information about you and your baby’s health.


If the position of your baby allows, 3D views of your baby can be attempted however please be aware that sometimes obtaining these images is difficult and not possible in the later stages of pregnancy.
