Growth Scan (Under 24 weeks)
A transabdominal ultrasound pregnancy scan to assess the size and position of the baby and the amount of surrounding amniotic fluid as a guide to overall wellbeing. Repeat scans also allow the accurate tracking of growth.
Fetal gender scan for fetal sexing is optional at no extra cost from about 16 weeks depending on fetal position however ultrasound is only about 90% accurate in predicting fetal gender.
Conventional antenatal care based on measuring the bump (symphysis fundal height or SFH) only identifies 50% of babies who are small for gestational age (SGA) or with intrauterine growth restriction (IUGR).
