Growth Scan in Pregnancy

At Peek-A-Baby, our growth scan in pregnancy prioritises the health and well-being of both mothers and their unborn babies. Pregnancy is a journey filled with excitement and anticipation. We understand the importance of ensuring that every step of this journey is supported by comprehensive care and cutting-edge technology.

Our growth scan services play a crucial role in monitoring foetal development, providing expectant parents with valuable insights into their baby's growth trajectory and overall health. With our experienced team, you can trust Peek-A-Baby to deliver accurate and compassionate care throughout your pregnancy.

What Is a Growth Scan in Pregnancy?

A growth scan, also known as a foetal growth scan or prenatal ultrasound, is a vital tool in monitoring your baby's development. Using advanced ultrasound technology, our experienced technicians create detailed images of your baby inside the womb. This allows us to assess their growth, position, and overall well-being. By closely monitoring your baby's growth, we can detect any potential issues early on and ensure the best possible outcome for both you and your little one.

When Do I Have a Growth Scan in Pregnancy?

At Peek-A-Baby, we offer our Growth Scan in pregnancy between 22 weeks and 38 weeks. Typically, growth scans are scheduled around the 22-week mark, providing you with a comprehensive view of your baby's progress roughly halfway through your pregnancy. It is commonly recommended that another Growth Scan takes place at around 32-36 weeks to ensure continued growth and development.

The timing and frequency may vary based on your unique circumstances and any concerns that may arise. Your healthcare provider will determine the most appropriate schedule for your growth scans. Taking into account your unique circumstances, by examining factors such as your medical history, age, and any previous pregnancies.

If there are concerns about the baby's growth rate, maternal complications, or other risk factors, more frequent scans allow for closer monitoring and timely intervention if necessary. To make sure both the mom and the baby have the ideal outcome.

How Can I Prepare for a Growth Scan?

Preparing for your growth scan is simple but essential for a smooth and comfortable experience. Staying hydrated before your appointment is crucial as it ensures your bladder is adequately filled. This improves the clarity of ultrasound images, necessary for accurately assessing your baby's growth and development.

To ensure you’re fully relaxed and at ease, wear comfortable, loose-fitting clothes that are easy to remove during the appointment. Especially since you will need to expose your abdomen for the ultrasound examination. Bringing along a loved one for support can also make the experience even more special.

If you have any questions or concerns about the scan, don't hesitate to reach out to us. Our team at Peek-A-Baby is here to ensure you feel informed and comfortable every step of the way. We're dedicated to providing personalised care and support, so feel free to reach out to us with any inquiries.

After the scan, our team will discuss the results with you in detail. If everything looks good, you can continue your pregnancy journey with peace of mind. Routine prenatal care will continue as scheduled, with follow-up appointments as needed.

If the growth scan reveals any abnormalities or concerns, we'll work with you to determine the best course of action and provide support every step of the way. Our goal is to ensure you have all the information and support you need to make informed decisions about your baby's health and well-being.
