A fetal wellbeing scan (growth scan) will assess the baby’s growth, blood flow and evaluate the development of the baby’s organs.  A growth scan can be performed from 27-29 weeks and 35-37 weeks and ideally at 28 and 36 weeks. (Price is per scan)

What is it?

This is an abdominal ultrasound scan performed by leading consultant in Fetal Medicine, Mr Pranav Pandya at The Portland Hospital  for the purpose of determining the growth and health of the baby by:

  • Measuring the circumference of the head and abdomen and the length of the thigh bone. From these measurements we can estimate the baby’s weight
  • Examination of the movement of the baby
  • Evaluation of placental position and appearance
  • Measurement of the amount of amniotic fluid
  • Assessment of blood flow to the placenta and baby by colour Doppler scan

This scan can also be performed by our Sonographer Edel at our location in the City of London.

Who is it for?

These scans tend to be for those women who have had previous pregnancy complications such as preeclampsia, fetal growth restriction, diabetes and stillbirth and for those who have developed problems in their current pregnancy.

At what stage of pregnancy would I have it?

From 27-29 weeks and 35-37 weeks. We recommend this is performed at 28 and 36 weeks. (Price is per scan).

  • Growth scan (28 / 36 weeks)

Following the scan:

  • You will take home a collection of images on the day
