As you near the end of your pregnancy, the excitement of finally meeting your new baby or babies is likely at an all-time high. The third trimester is an important time for your baby’s development and it’s natural to have some concerns and questions about their health and readiness for birth. A 3rd trimester ultrasound, also known as a third trimester or presentation scan, is a great opportunity to alleviate some of these worries and reassure your child is in good health and well-positioned for delivery.
One of the main purposes of the third trimester ultrasound is to check the position of your baby or babies and the placenta. Our expert staff will assess the position of your baby, the location of the placenta and check that everything is primed and ready for the birth. The baby’s position is an important factor in determining the ease of delivery, and our staff will be able to give you an idea of what to expect during labour and delivery based on the baby’s position. Additionally, the position of the placenta is important to check for any potential issues or complications, such as a low-lying placenta which could affect your birth plan. Our staff will provide you with professional advice and guidance on how to proceed based on the position of the placenta.
One of the best parts of the third trimester ultrasound is the opportunity to see your baby again. This is a special moment for you and your partner; you’ll be able to see your baby’s movements and hear their heartbeat. You’ll also be given two images to take home with you, so you can treasure these memories forever. These images will be a keepsake of this special time in your life and a reminder of the precious new life that is soon to arrive.
In summary, the third trimester private ultrasound or presentation scan is a great opportunity to check the position of your baby and the placenta and have a final check-up on their health before delivery. Our expert staff will provide you with professional advice and guidance on how to check the baby’s position, placenta position and any potential issues or concerns that may affect your birth plan. Additionally, you’ll be reassured to see your baby again and take home two images as a keepsake. It’s an exciting time and you’re so close to finally meeting your new baby.
