Frequently Asked Questions

How many people can I bring to my scan with me?

You can bring 4 people with you.

Do you have wheelchair access?

No, unfortunately we do not have wheel chair access.

What time should I arrive for my appointment?

You need to arrive at least 10 minutes before the appointment time.

Do I need to bring my maternity notes with me?

Yes, please bring your notes with you so we have all your information at hand if needed.

What is a 4D scan?

A 4D scan is a 3D scan in real time. The forth dimension is time!

When is the best time to have a 4D scan?

We recommend having a 4D scan at 28 weeks gestation. At this stage baby still has room to move and still has lots of amniotic fluid which we need to get good 4D images.

Is there any parking on site?

There is free street parking outside.

I don't want to know the gender of the baby, can I still have a scan?

Yes, we will not look at the gender of the baby if you don't want to know!

How long does the appointment last?

It depends on the type of appointment you have booked but you can expect to be with us for 40-60 minutes in total.

Do I need to drink lots of water before my appointment?

 If you are having a gender scan or an early scan, then yes, you need to drink water then hold your bladder so you have a full bladder for the scan. For all other scans, you don't! 
 
However, you should try to be well hydrated, drink plenty of water in the days leading up to your scan to ensure baby has lots of amniotic fluid which helps us get good images.

What if you find a problem?

If we find anything concerning, we will inform you and refer you to your local NHS to receive medical advice..

Do you have toilet facilities?

Yes, absolutely!

I'm having twins/triplets, do I have to pay more?

Yes, unfortunately, the scan will take twice as long with twins, so our price is in accordance with this. We charge £30 per additional baby. However, if you are having an early scan there is no extra charge as this will not need a longer appointment time and you probably won't know you are having twins until you have the scan.

I'm under 18 can I still have a scan?

No, Sorry you have to be at least 18 years of age to have a scan with us.

We offer gender scans after 16 weeks of pregnancy and dating scans as early as 6 weeks.
