If you are pregnant and have booked a reassurance scan, you may wonder what this entails. A reassurance scan is a safe, pain-free ultrasound scan. A reassurance scan aims to check on the progression of your pregnancy and identify your unborn baby's general health, growth, and well-being.

This scan can also reassure you that your baby is developing as expected. We can also screen for conditions such as pre-eclampsia, cervical length, positioning of the placenta and vasa previa.

A reassurance scan can be invaluable to expectant parents and allows you to fully understand how your baby is doing and offer instant peace of mind if you are worried.

During a reassurance scan, your sonographer may check the positioning of your baby, trace and listen to their heartbeat and assess your pelvic area. Early reassurance scans are also highly beneficial to confirm whether it is a single pregnancy or if you are carrying multiple babies, as the scan can detect their separate amniotic sacs and heartbeats.

There is no need for a referral, and we will provide you with a report, which can be passed to your NHS doctor or midwife for continuity of care.

Why should I have a reassurance scan?

For many couples, waiting to see their baby for the first time can be agonising. Early pregnancy scans solve this and allow parents to overcome worry or anxiety.

Often, expectant parents want a reassurance scan to see their baby in 2D and to hear their heartbeat, which can be a magical and bonding experience.

What happens during a reassurance scan?

It is essential to bear in mind that a reassurance scan is not a suitable substitute for a 20-week anomaly scan. Instead, your early pregnancy reassurance scan will complement the results of your NHS scan, giving you further information, more frequent updates and reassurance about your baby’s health and growth.

If you are attending your reassurance scan to get a second opinion, please ensure you provide us with the relevant ultrasound report ahead of your appointment.

During your reassurance scan, your sonographer will talk you through the process and explain the images you see on the screen. This is the perfect opportunity to ask your sonographer any questions that you may have concerning your baby or pregnancy.

As with all of our pregnancy ultrasound scans, we will provide you with a complete medical report that you can take back to your obstetrician or midwife and images of your scan, which you can take home.
