Dating Scan Details
Our Dating Scan offers early pregnancy assurance to ladies from as early as 6 weeks or two weeks following a first positive pregnancy test if LMP is unknown. Each of our early pregnancy scans come complete with a medical report. Our expertly trained sonographers and clinic team will provide you with the best possible reassurance from 6 weeks gestation.
- If you feel you would benefit from more frequent scans please speak with your local clinic, however a minimum of 2 weeks between scans is advised
- The primary purpose of this scan is to confirm pregnancy dating and determine health.
- The scans will last about 10 minutes and a 2D scan picture will be given to you to take home and keep.
