your full pregnancy scan timeline

Here are the recommended times for each scan in the above packages. Please note, if you took the 10 Week Scan we recommend to wait to 16 weeks for the Early Fetal Scan.

Viability Scan

The Viability Scan is the first scan in your pregnancy journey. It is sometimes referred to as the “dating scan” or “early pregnancy scan”.

Early Fetal Scan

The Early Fetal Scan, which is our signature scan, aims to provide reassurance as early as possible, regarding the health and development of your baby.

Learn more

Anomaly Scan

By 20-22 weeks of pregnancy, you are roughly halfway through your journey. This is an ideal time to re-examine the anatomical development of your baby using the Anomaly Scan/Anatomy Scan.

Learn more

3rd Trimester Anomaly Scan

The NHS fetal screening program in the UK does not include any additional scans after the 18-20 weeks anomaly scan for pregnant women with no risk factors. This means that for most women, the 18-20 weeks scan is the last scan in their pregnancy. However, in many other countries, there are additional ultrasound scans schedules for the third trimester, which aim to evaluate fetal growth and development.

Wellbeing Scan

Special 3rd trimester scan aiming to exclude late pregnancy problems and also checking baby’s growth and wellbeing. 4D scan included.

Learn more

10 Weeks Scan

This is the earliest and most technologically advanced anomaly scan at 10 weeks which aims to exclude 10 major fetal anomalies visible at this stage. At 10 weeks your baby’s main structures have already developed which allows us the chance to perform a first structural examination.

Learn more

NIPT Test

We combine advanced NIPT for Downs syndrome and other chromosomal anomalies with our expert ultrasound anomaly scan to check baby’s health as early as possible.

Learn more

Presentation Scan

The main aim of the Presentation Scan is to diagnose breech position or other abnormalities in the baby’s position. The clinician assisting you with the delivery will use this information to prepare for your baby’s birth!

Frequently Asked Questions

You have a question? We have an answer.

What is offered by the NHS Fetal Anomaly Screening Programme?

Currently NHS Fetal Anomaly Screening Programme includes: 

Screening for Down’s syndrome is offered to all eligible pregnant women, and takes place between 10⁺⁰ and 20⁺⁰ weeks of pregnancy.

Screening for Edwards’ syndrome and Patau’s syndrome is offered to all eligible pregnant women and takes place between 10⁺⁰ and 14⁺¹ weeks of pregnancy.

Screening for 11 physical conditions as part of the 20-week scan is offered to all pregnant women and takes place between 18⁺⁰ and 20⁺⁶ weeks of pregnancy. Scans can be completed up to 23⁺⁰ weeks of pregnancy.

Your first scan with the NHS is likely to be the Nuchal Translucency/Dating scan at 11-13 weeks. This scan is predominantly designed to screen for the same chromosomal anomalies (Down’s, Edwards and Patau’s syndromes) as NIPT using an older methodology developed in the 1990s. NIPT is a far more advanced test developed in 2011 with a much higher accuracy.

Most crucially, majority of NHS Trusts have no protocols for structural anomalies screening at 11-13 weeks scan. Our scans are especially designed to screen for every anomaly detectable from an early gestational age and will improve the management of the pregnancy.

Second scan in NHS is usually done at 19-20 weeks it called Anomaly Scan and includes screening for 11 conditions:

  • Edwards’ syndrome (T18)
  • Patau’s syndrome (T13)
  • anencephaly
  • spina bifida
  • cleft lip
  • congenital diaphragmatic hernia
  • gastroschisis
  • exomphalos
  • congenital heart disease
  • bilateral renal agenesis
  • lethal skeletal dysplasia

In our London Pregnancy Clinic we screen for those 11 conditions among other 100 anomalies at 12-16 weeks Early Fetal Scan, however we are well aware that in some cases those abnormalities can have delayed manifestation (for example diaphragmatic hernia) or being too small to be detected (cleft lip). 

Can I have my images from the scan? What else will I get?

Yes, of course. We use Tricefy which is a secure cloud system to upload images from your scan to be viewed before you even leave the scanning room! You will also receive a hard and soft copy of your detailed ultrasound report as well as some high-quality colour printouts for you to take home with you!

Tricefy also allows you to download the images from the scan and share him with your loved ones via message/social media.

We provide still ultrasound images for you to take away with you on the day. We also send these to you electronically, with a couple of video clips. We provide a USB stick with the full 3D/4D experience.

How many scans can I do during pregnancy? Is it safe to have many ultrasound examinations??

The answer is you can have as many scans as it needed for appropriate management of your pregnancy. Some mothers with complicated pregnancies, in order to confirm fetal wellbeing, can have scans few times a week. There is no cumulative effects from repeated scans. 

Ultrasound is very safe for your baby because it uses just low intensity sound and there is no any radiation exposure. The results of the WHO systematic review on safety of ultrasonography in pregnancy has showed that ultrasonography in pregnancy was not associated with adverse maternal or perinatal outcome, impaired physical or neurological development, increased risk for malignancy in childhood, subnormal intellectual performance or mental diseases.

The only known effect from use of ultrasound equipment is its potential to increase temperature of the body. It can happen only with prolong (more than hour) uninterrupted scanning with high intensity ultrasound modes and especially with use of outdated equipment. 

On every scan we control Thermal Index (TI) as an on-screen guide of the potential for tissue heating and strictly following ALARA principle (as low as reasonably achievable) during all scans. For early pregnancy scans we perform ongoing audit of Thermal Index (TI) and time of the scan.

How many scans would you recommend during pregnancy? What is the best scan schedule?

We think that the best scan schedule for uncomplicated pregnancy is:

I would like to have additional private tests, however we have limited resources. Which scans and test would you recommend as a minimum for my baby?

We think that essential scans for every future mother for uncomplicated pregnancy are:

  • 10 Weeks Scan and NIPT (affordable Invitae NIPS) at 10 weeks in London Pregnancy Clinic
  • NHS NT scan preferable at 13 weeks
  • NHS anomaly scan at 19-20 weeks
  • 3rd Trimester Anomaly Scan at 28 weeks in London Pregnancy Clinic

This minimalistic schedule will give you:

  • earliest scan to exclude major anomalies (10 weeks Scan)
  • best option for Down’s syndrome screening (Invitae NIPS)
  • screening for anomalies with late manifestation and early fetal growth disorders which can be invisible at 19-20 week at NHS anomaly scan (3rd trimester anomaly scan)  
What is the most advanced and comprehensive scan that I can do early in the pregnancy for my reassurance?

Early Fetal Echocardiography is the most advanced and comprehensive ultrasound scan in early pregnancy.

We will perform:

  • Special examination for fetal heart
  • Top-to-toe examination of all baby’s organs and structures

You can have also NIPT for the most accurate Down’s syndrome screening as add-on option during this scan

Our pregnancy scan package refund policy

In the unfortunate event of pregnancy loss or various pregnancy complications where the pregnancy scan package is deemed unnecessary by our Medical Staff, we will refund you the proportion of the scans that were not performed. For example, if you took a 3 scan package and only ended up having 2 of the 3, we will refund you 33% of the total package fee. 

We perform all the spectrum of expert scans in pregnancy
