Early Pregnancy Scans are not routinely offered on the NHS but you may have one privately without affecting your NHS entitlement.

Sometimes it is requested by a doctor or midwife to confirm that your pregnancy is healthy (in this case your scan is often called a viability scan) and to calculate the date when your baby is due (usually referred to as a dating scan).

New parents deserve the confidence that their 4D scan is carried out by a qualified healthcare professional, that's why our simply4D scan includes a Babybond wellbeing check performed by a health care professional.

This 4D baby scan is optimised for fast results and includes printed souvenir images and complimentary sexing if you want to know (we'll keep things hidden if you don't).

A pregnancy can be seen from as early as 6 weeks from the first day of your last period (LMP) and not the date of conception.

If you have had any bleeding or pain or any other symptoms then this scan will accurately confirm viability.

It can also be performed to confirm the results of a pregnancy test or just to provide you with some reassurance that all is progressing as it should be.

At MUMS we are very proud of our professional experienced and caring staff who will ensure that you receive the best care possible and give advice and support where appropriate.
