You’re so close to finally meeting your new baby (or babies) and it’s officially time to get excited! However, in these latter stages of your pregnancy, you may still want reassurance that your child is doing well and is prepared for their arrival into the world.
At the presentation scan, our expert staff will assess the position of your baby, and also the location of the placenta, to check that everything is primed and ready for the birth. When checking the placenta, we’ll also give you professional advice as to whether or not its position may affect your birth plan.
You’ll also have the reassurance of seeing your baby again, and you’ll be given two images to take home with you .
This scan will assess the position of baby & placenta only by using ultrasound.
There is no specific preparation for this scan.
All scans are carried out with the aim to accomplish the main objective only.
Please bring your pregnancy book with previous scan results to your appointment.
This scan is a non-diagnostic scan.

We will require details of your GP / Health Care Professional; this will be requested from you prior to or at the time of your scan.
