Price: £120 (or £70 without measurements) From: 36 weeks gestation
Presentation scans are usually performed later in pregnancy (36 weeks onwards) and is usually requested by a midwife or obstetrician to check the position of your baby. A wellbeing scan is included as we at Premier Scans believe that whenever a mother has a scan the health and wellbeing of her baby should always be checked. The presentation scan will confirm the position of your baby and also look at the position of the placenta, amount of amniotic fluid around your baby and confirm your baby’s growth for your stage of pregnancy. You will be provided with a report at the end of the presentation scan which will display the various measurements taken and any related charts. The Sonographer performing the scan will be able to answer any further questions you may have.
If an abnormality is detected or suspected on your scan the Sonographer will discuss this with you. You will be given a report to take away and an appointment will be arranged for you at the hospital within a few days. You will then be scanned again, once a diagnosis has been made the management of the pregnancy will be discussed further.
Should you wish for us to not undertake these measurements of your baby then a presentation scan can be undertaken which will confirm the position of the baby and placenta and check amount of amniotic fluid around your baby for £70..
