The Growth Reassurance Scan

Being pregnant is an exhilarating experience, but of course, it’s likely that you’ll sometimes feel worried about the health of your baby. It’s very natural to feel this way; after all, this is a really special time for you, and you’re keen to welcome your healthy child into the world. 

If you’d like additional peace of mind and to check up on the progression of your baby, a growth scan can provide it. We’ll measure the fetus, giving you a professional estimation of weight, and we’ll check levels of fluid in the womb and location of the placenta. You’ll also receive a growth chart, outlining approximately what percentile your child will be on.  At your growth scan, we can even give you our professional opinion of the gender of your baby… if you’d like to know ! We can also upon request provide a 4DQuickPeek Non-Diagnostic Preview (if possible).

 

What is the primary purpose of the growth scan?

  • Assessment of your baby's size & environment using ultrasound.
  1. Measure baby's head, abdomen & femur to assess growth against the expected gestational age.
  2. Provide weight estimation
  3. Provide complimentary gender assessment (if required)
  4. Determine baby's position
  5. Assess placental position
  6. Assess amniotic fluidhd-scan-icon.png

 

NB. This is not a screening test for abnormalities.

 

How accurate is the scan clinics private gender check with this scan?

 

Gender_pie_chart_accuracy.png

 

In short, very accurate! This is the same gender check we perform in our very popular genderfirst scan.

We have built up an enviable reputation with our gender scan as we are able to provide a confident and assured assessment of baby's gender. Our qualified experts have years of experience specifically performing gender assessment and have scanned thousands of babies, building up a very robust and reliable reputation. We are very confident with our gender assessment and although a scan alone can never be 100% accurate, we pride ourselves on being right. Furthermore by using our own special Surescan™ Gender Protocol, developed exclusively in house by our Consultant practitioner, almost always are!

 

At 16 weeks the structures inside your baby are very small. Reproductive structures are even smaller, typically only few millimeters in size. As the pregnancy progresses these tiny structures grow and become larger making it easier to identify baby’s gender.
As these structures are still very small an accurate gender assessment from 16 weeks requires a good eye for detail, anatomical knowledge and lots of experience. Our team all have a great deal of skill, knowledge and experience with interpreting these scans and can therefore provide you with a confident assured assessment. Furthermore we use our own special gender check protocol, developed by our gender expert, consultant practitioner Mr. Usman, which allows for even more assurance. 
 

How do I prepare for this scan?

  • 16 - 22 weeks - a comfortably full bladder is suggested.
  • Over 22 weeks - no specific preparation is required.
  • Please bring your pregnancy book / previous scan results to your appointment.
