Wellbeing Pregnancy Scan (Over 24 Weeks)
A Wellbeing Scan is s transabdominal ultrasound pregnancy scan to assess the size and position of the baby, placental blood flow (umbilical artery doppler) and the amount of surrounding amniotic fluid as a guide to overall fetal wellbeing. Repeating the wellbeing scan also allow the accurate tracking of growth. Fetal gender is optional at no extra cost.
Conventional antenatal care based on measuring the bump (symphysis-fundal height or SFH) misses half of the babies who have intrauterine growth restriction (IUGR) small for gestational age (SGA).
