The Anomaly Scan

Looking at your baby in detail helps to check his or her well-being during a particular section of your pregnancy. By booking an anomaly scan at the Baby Scan Clinic, our friendly and experienced sonographer will access your baby's development by looking at specific anatomical structures including the limbs, spine, heart and tummy. This will allow us to check if your child is healthy at this vital stage during your pregnancy. All assessments and sonographer notes will be recorded on to a printed report, for you to take away at the end of your scan.

Requirements for the Anomaly Scan

It is not necessary to have a full bladder when undergoing an anomaly scan. If a clear and accurate assessment cannot be obtained in the first instance, an internal transvaginal probe may be used. Your sonographer can explain this to you in more detail if necessary. feel free to eat and drink as normal on the day of your scan and wear loose clothing during your appointment if at all possible. This scan will last approximately 20-25 minutes.
