The only scan that specifically looks for anomalies is the conventional scan performed by the NHS at around 20 weeks into your pregnancy. Your 4D scan is a self-elective, non-diagnostic scan.
However, we believe it would be remiss of us to not take the opportunity to check on your baby’s development, so we include a wellbeing scan with every appointment. This scan is not as comprehensive as the 20-week scan, and should not be considered a replacement, but we will check certain vital signs, such as the baby’s position, movement and heartbeat.
If we do discover anything that concerns us during this scan, our sonographers are very experienced, and are able to deal with any issues with sensitivity and professionalism. Anything we might find will have to be confirmed by the NHS, and our sonographers will be able to refer you to your midwife or the Pregnancy Assessment Unit straight away.
They will not let you leave without a report, any relevant images, and a plan of where to go next.
