Finding out you’re pregnant can be an exciting yet anxious time. An early scan can make sure your pregnancy is off to the best possible start, and estimate how far along you are and how many babies are on board.

An early scan can check if your pregnancy is viable and progressing normally, and visualise a heartbeat (from 7 weeks)
In your early scan, you’ll find out whether you are pregnant with more than one baby (e.g. twins).
You’ll receive an indication of gestational age - how far along you are in your pregnancy, and when your baby is due.
Early scanning can assess the causes of any pain or bleeding, and rule out ectopic pregnancy and some structural abnormalities.
Ultrasound uses high frequency sound waves to generate pictures of your baby while you’re pregnant. It’s safe and quick, and doesn’t use any radiation.
Most early scans can be carried out trans-abdominally (externally), but if the images are not clear enough, a transvaginal (internal) scan may be offered during your appointment.
Our early ultrasound scans can detect and confirm pregnancy from six weeks and a heartbeat from seven weeks.

Private pregnancy ultrasound scans allow you to spend more time with your baby before they arrive, and can give you
earlier access to scans from just 6 weeks. The NHS routinely provide two pregnancy scans, but they take place in the
first half of your pregnancy. This means a private scan is the best option if you want to see your baby regularly, or
into your third trimester. Private scans also give you more choice when it comes to locations and scan types.
Our private pregnancy scans start from £80, and you can choose from 20 convenient locations.
We can provide early ultrasound scans from as soon as 6 weeks into your pregnancy. Usually, the first pregnancy scan
