Presentation scan

Presentation scan

Growth, Placenta Location and Presentation Scan - 38 – 40 weeks gestation (20-30 minute appointment) £95 Single, £110 multiple

A Presentation scan is performed to establish the position of your baby close to the delivery date. This information is important for your midwife or obstetrician when planning your delivery whether it is to be a natural birth or caesarean section. Ideally the scan should be performed as late as possible in your pregnancy. As well as the position we will assess your baby’s growth and wellbeing but it can be quite difficult to obtain all measurements in the very late stages of pregnancy because of the size and position of your baby.

What do we look at?

• Position of your baby
• Confirm the position of the placenta (see Placenta Praevia)
• Blood flow in the umbilical cord
• The amount of amniotic fluid
• Your baby´s heart rate
• Your baby´s growth and size (where possible)

You will be given a progress report based on the scan results plus a selection of some images to take away. Please note that the quality of the printed images supplied with this scan can vary because they can sometimes be difficult to obtain due to your baby’s position and size.
