Common Pregnancy Scan Questions Birmingham

When you discover you are pregnant, questions come flooding to mind. This is perfectly normal! Each pregnancy journey is different and unique. Wirth this comes its own set of pregnancy questions from both mums and dads.

Frequently Asked Pregnancy Scan Questions

Peek A Baby have compiled some of these frequently asked questions here to try and help you navigate your way through pregnancy and the wide range of scans available from just 6 weeks.

How early can you detect a pregnancy?

Pregnancy can be detected around 21 days after your last unprotected sex on home pregnancy tests. Dependant upon the type of test purchased, you could find out as early as a few days after a missed period.

For confirmation of pregnancy, Peek A Baby offer scans from 6 weeks.

How early can you see your baby on an ultrasound?

The earliest scan available at Peek A Baby Birmingham is at 6 weeks. This is our Early Reassurance Pregnancy Scan, giving you the confirmation of your pregnancy as early as possible via ultrasound.

Do Peek A Baby Scans replace NHS Scans?

No! It is still important that you attend your NHS scan appointments. Peek A Baby scans are an additional scan appointment that you opt to book.

For example, you can find out the gender of your baby via your NHS scan, but if you wish to know sooner, you can book a Peek A Baby Gender Scan as well.
